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 give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the variety of styles and colors we carry, you can find a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

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

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

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

Now that we’ve read a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles might obstruct 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are typically more costly 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 could be a great accent to your next set of windows.
