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 variety of styles and colors available, you can find a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you can 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 requirements.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to provide 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 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 number of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles can 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are typically more costly than those that don’t have 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.
