Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the number 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 have the ability to swap 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 expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient choices 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 seen 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 a few grille styles might block 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

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

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