Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to direct your window questions? Are you speculating if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC are here to support you and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Cheyenne climate influence my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the external elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings around your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how should I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after lots of use. Most can be cleaned as long as you have the correct products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and never paint over your windows without looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t fix, reach out to our experts at Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC in Cheyenne and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
