Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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 offered, you can discover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to switch styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, 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 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 handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about 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 inhibit their view of the outside world.

  • 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 showcase grilles are typically more expensive 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 add-on to your next set of windows.
