Make Cleaning Easier with Today’s Replacement Windows

Yes, it’s time again for deep cleaning.  And that means window cleaning.   For most homeowners, that ranks way below cleaning  just about anything else.   First there’s dragging the ladder and bucket from window to window, which can be a real chore (or even a danger) if you have landscaping to avoid or if the ground surrounding your home is uneven.  Then there’s maneuvering that rickety extension pole because you don’t want to climb a ladder THAT high to get to those second-floor windows.  Then the task gets even more complicated if you have to take down all those old-fashioned hook-on-the top storm windows.  And often after a hard winter like we just had, those storms need to be scraped and repainted before you put them away for next fall.    You could hire someone to clean those windows and stow those storms for you, or you could have a permanent solution – replacing those old windows with low-maintenance windows from one of America’s premium window companies like Pella or Owens Corning. 

The good news is that with modern replacement windows, the chore of cleaning windows has gotten a lot easier than it used to be.  Most premium windows nowadays are manufactured with tilt-in panels so that you can clean both sides of the window from inside your house.  Energy-efficient double-paned (or even triple-glazed) windows eliminate the need for storm windows in most situations.  Put those ladders and paint scrapers away!

Many window lines also come with maintenance-free fiberglass, aluminum-clad, or vinyl exteriors (and permanently-finished interiors as well), eliminating the need for periodic repainting or restaining.   If you like the look of divided light from window grids, there are many options available which include removable grids to make cleaning easier, or even window lines which incorporate the grids between the glass panes.  No more tedious dusting!  And if cleaning window blinds and shades is something you dread, we have great news for you.  Pella’s Designer Series doors and windows have a number of options available which incorporate window treatments beneath swing-out interior glass panes.
