Find out more about the benefits of our wood and vinyl windows and how we can customize them for your spaces. We offer the most popular styles of windows and patio doors, including double-hung windows.

Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our reasonably priced vinyl replacement windows include meticulous technique and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you satisfaction for years.

Low Maintenance

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

Energy Efficient

Vinyl is a great insulator and stops heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you select, you can tailor 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 often the most reasonable choice when you need to have your windows replaced.

Customizable

There’s more to vinyl than only white.

Create your own look with Pella’s dual-color frames. Use a different color, like black or gray, to complement your home’s outside. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help provide long-lasting color.

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

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

Durable

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

Benefits of Wood Windows

Our premium, high-performing styles give your rooms a cozy feeling that only genuine wood can provide.

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows require exterior painting and sealing every few years. Bypass those duties with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which include interior wood window frames. These aluminum-clad exteriors counter fading and look great for years.

Highly Customizable

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

With Pella, you can select from woods like pine, Douglas fir and mahogany. As well as a wide collection 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 own a historic home, wood windows can match timeless style while adding modern energy efficiency.

Long Lasting

Wood is a long-lasting material for windows. At Pella, we stand behind our wood windows with one of the best limited lifetime warranties in the industry.2

Energy Efficient

Wood is an exceptional insulator and blocks heat and cold.

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

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