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 number of styles and colors available, you can uncover 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 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 expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient options 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 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 host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles may block 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are usually more costly than those that don’t have grilles.

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