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 offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the number of styles and colors we carry, you can uncover a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a handful of color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient choices 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 read a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles may block 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more expensive than those that don’t have grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles could be a great accent to your next set of windows. There are a variety of things to consider, from style to color choice, but with a little help from our team, we’re sure you’ll find exactly what you’re searching for.
