Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our reasonably priced vinyl replacement windows feature detailed workmanship and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you satisfaction for years.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl windows don’t need much maintenance, other than cleaning with soap and water. You won’t have to paint or stain your windows every few years. In fact, you’ll never need to stain them.

Energy Efficient

Vinyl is a good insulator and stops heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you want, you can customize energy efficiency with:

  • Glass options, such as dual- or triple-pane glass with Low-E and argon
  • ENERGY STAR®-rated models that can help you save on energy bills
  • Vinyl frame foam insulation

Affordable

Vinyl is frequently the most reasonable choice when you need to have your windows replaced.

Customizable

There’s more to vinyl than only white.

Create your own style with Pella’s dual-color frames. Choose a different color, like black or gray, to enhance your home’s exterior. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help ensure long-lasting vibrancy.

Ask your Pella professional how you can further customize your windows with:

  • Grilles
  • Hardware
  • Between-the-glass shades and blinds

Durable

We create and test our vinyl windows to withstand exposure to sunlight, humidity and temperatures.

Benefits of Wood Windows

Our premium, high-performing styles give your residence a welcoming feeling that only real wood can offer.

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows need exterior painting and sealing every few years. Bypass those tasks with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which feature interior wood window frames. These aluminum-clad exteriors fight fading and look attractive for years.

Highly Customizable

From material to grille patterns to color, wood windows are extremely customizable. You can pick from contemporary and traditional models.

With Pella, you can select from woods like pine, Douglas fir and mahogany. As well as a wide variety of stains, paints and hardware to enhance your home.

Depending on the product line, you can also add:

  • Insynctive® technology
  • Integrated blinds and shades

Historical Accuracy

If you have a historic home, wood windows can match timeless style while adding modern energy efficiency.
