Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to help and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Oklahoma City climate impact my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a good choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the external elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for ages while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but prefer to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings surrounding your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the correct products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and don’t paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Oklahoma City and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
