Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Unsure where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at McComb Window & Door are here to assist and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Lafayette climate affect my decision?

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. McComb Window & Door has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also a great option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for years while providing exceptional 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 options do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but prefer 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 offer 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 easily 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 can I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after lots of use. Most can be cleaned if you have the appropriate products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make 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 get rid of, reach out to our experts at McComb Window & Door in Lafayette and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
