Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the variety of styles and colors offered, you can uncover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to change 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 offer more energy efficient selections than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to allow for easier cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may 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 usually more costly than those that don’t have grilles.

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