The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, 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 are able to swap 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 expectations.

  • 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 it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs available,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles can obstruct 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more pricey than those that don’t feature grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to purchase 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.
