Your window questions answered by the pros
Unsure where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC are here to help and answer your window wonders:
What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Casper climate impact my decision?
When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to note that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the external elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for years while providing excellent energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can also look at double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings by your windows.
My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the correct products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and never paint over your windows without looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, reach out to our experts at Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC in Casper and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
