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 wishes, and with the host of styles and colors we carry, you can discover a combination to achieve 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 select, there are multiple color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • 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 seen a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are sometimes more costly than those without grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to get replacement windows or you’re simply looking for your current home, window grilles could be a great add-on to your next set of windows.
