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 increase the 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 Muncie climate affect my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to understand 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 regularly selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal 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 outside elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for a long duration 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 choices do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but would like to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that provide 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 just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you 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 years and years of use. Most can be cleaned if you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without viewing 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 Muncie and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.

If you have any other window questions that we didn’t answer here, or you are interested in visiting our showroom in Muncie, contact us at 317-983-5642 or schedule an appointment with us online. We want to make sure all of your window woes are resolved—let us know how we can help.
