why would anyone do such a thing to a gorgeous historic building, like this 1920's spanish style duplex in m21's neighborhood? so stylistically inappropriate in every way- wrong proportion, wrong pane size, wrong color (can't paint that sh*t), wrong material (you know, like they had plastic in historical spain). wrong, wrong, wrong.
when we got home and downloaded the pics, we used the google for more info on this purveyor of urban blight, and discovered the final tragedy of the wrongness of the vinyl window: you what the manufacturer calls those cheap little strips of plastic overlaid on the glass? the grids that are supposed to fool one into thinking they are actually composed of multiple panes of glass? (like we're falling for it, 'cuz we're both blind and stupid). the klassy marketing term they use instead of "muntins", the real word for the strips of real wood or metal that divide the lights (panes) of a real window? they call them grilles.
wrong. this is not a grille- it's cheap, and looks it. real grilles should cost some real monies.
now these? these are real grills:
so remember when remodeling your home, just say no to vinyl- 'cuz grillz ain't for windoz, grillz is for teefs!
