Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the number of styles and colors offered, you can find a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are multiple color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer 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 few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles might obstruct 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are usually more expensive than those that don’t feature grilles.
