Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating if your windows are 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 choose for my house? How does the Casper climate impact my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC offers 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 offer 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. They 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 options do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but would like 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 easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant as the outdoor plantings by your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how can I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. Many can be cleaned when you have the correct products. At times 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 should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased 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 fix, reach out to our experts at Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC in Casper and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
