Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are multiple color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient options than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to allow for easier cleaning of 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 variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles may block their view of the yard.

  • 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 challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are usually more expensive than those without grilles.
