The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the number of styles and colors available, you can find a combination to fulfill 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 a handful of color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you 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 taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

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

  • Replacement windows that showcase 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 can be a great addition to your next set of windows.
