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 variety 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 can switch styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

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

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve seen a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles can 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are typically more costly than those without grilles.

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