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 wants, and with the host of styles and colors offered, you can discover 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 select, there are multiple color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to provide more energy efficient options 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 read a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges surrounding window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles may 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 needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are typically more costly than those that don’t have grilles.
