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 wishes, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can find 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 swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are a few color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient selections than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve read a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

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

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are sometimes more pricey than those that don’t feature grilles.

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