Your window questions answered by the pros
Unsure where to direct your window questions? Are you speculating if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows & Doors - Victoria are here to assist and answer your window questions:
What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Victoria climate influence my decision?
When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to note that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows & Doors - Victoria provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a great choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you want a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for many years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or items outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but would like to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings by your windows.
My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are common after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned if you have the correct products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and do not paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you cannot repair, call our experts at Pella Windows & Doors - Victoria in Victoria and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
