The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the number of styles and colors we carry, 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 swap 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 needs.

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

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

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