Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated part of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can find a combination to satisfy 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 a handful of color choices to meet your design requirements.

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

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles might 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 difficult.

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