Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the host of styles and colors offered, you can discover a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, 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 give you 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 seen a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can obstruct their view of the yard.

  • 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 difficult.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are sometimes more expensive than those without grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to purchase replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles may be a great accent to your next set of windows.
