To Grid or Not To Grid Your Replacement Windows

The Question Is: To Grid or Not To Grid

Grids are an easy and beautiful way to give your replacement windows, sliding glass doors and front entry doors a custom look. In the colonial days, windows were produced in small panes and mulled together using wood mouldings, currently referred to as grids. Now that impact glass is produced in larger sheets, grids have become an accessory to windows to give them a traditional look or an architectural style. The technology we have today gives us options for different grid types and styles.

Simulated Divided Lites (SDL)

To achieve the historical or traditional style, they use Simulated Divided Lites. The grids are attached on the surface of the glass. They are placed on the inside and the outside of the window for a traditional look. Grids are contoured on the exterior surface of the window making them look like they were pieced together. Achieve the style of contoured traditional windows with highly energy efficient windows that are hurricane resistant with brands such as Simonton and PGT.

Grids Between Glass (GBG)

Advancements in the industry have given us the option to put the grids between the glass panes. Impact windows are made with multiple layers of glass and laminate. Two different kinds, flat or sculptured, grids are placed in between two of those panes giving the appearance of traditional grids. Window cleaning becomes a breeze with a one flat pane of glass and no contoured grids to interfere.

I love my new windows and doors. It makes the house feel warmer, while the outside temp is in the 30's. Plus, the outside noise has reduced, greatly. Karoly and team did a great job from the initial estimate visit, to the office communications, and then the installation team. All professional and knowledgeable. Everything went smoothly and very impressive to watch.
