The Homeowner’s Guide to Windows
Windows are what we do best, and we’ve been at it for nearly 100 years. Here is what you need to know when it comes to the windows in your home.
Time to Replace Your Windows?
As a homeowner, you have to be able to recognize the signs of a window that needs to be replaced. This may include:
- Increased draftiness in your home
- Condensation on the glass
If you have concerns, a Pella representative can help you answer some initial questions.
Once you have decided to purchase new or replacement windows, you can begin to explore your options in the wonderful world of residential windows.
Before you start thinking about features and upgrades, we recommend you find out what window materials are best suited for your needs. Pella professionals can also help you navigate questions concerning climate-specific performance features.
