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 change styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a few color choices to meet your design requirements.

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

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

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may inhibit their view of the outside world.

  • 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are typically more pricey than those without grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles can be a great addition to your next set of windows. There are a host of things to consider, from style to color choice, but with a little help from our pros, we’re sure you’ll find just what you’re looking for.
