Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to go with your window questions? Are you questioning if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at McComb Window & Door are here to help and answer your window curiosities:

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

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. McComb Window & Door provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a great choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

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

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, consider 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 consider double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant as the outdoor plantings surrounding your windows.

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

Weathered windows are usual after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the correct products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may 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 erased and do not paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t fix, call our experts at McComb Window & Door in Indianapolis and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
