The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the variety of styles and colors we carry, you can discover a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you have the ability to swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are multiple color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient choices than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there, some homeowners feel that a few grille styles can inhibit their view of the outdoors.

  • Many window grilles are permanent once installed, limiting design flexibility in the future.

  • If grilles are bonded permanently to the surface of the glass that typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are sometimes more costly than those that don’t have grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to get replacement windows or you’re simply considering them for your current home, window grilles could be a great addition to your next set of windows.
