Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the number of styles and colors offered, you can discover a combination to achieve 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 go with, there are a few color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • 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 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 that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles can inhibit 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

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

Whether you’re moving and need to buy replacement windows or you’re simply looking for your current home, window grilles may be a great addition to your next set of windows.
