Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our practically priced vinyl replacement windows include detailed technique and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you peace of mind for years.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl windows don’t need a lot of service, 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 good insulator and limits heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you choose, you can tailor energy efficiency with:

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

Affordable

Vinyl is generally the most economical option 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. Select a contrasting color, like black or gray, to highlight your home’s outside. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help supply long-lasting vibrancy.

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

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

Durable

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

Benefits of Wood Windows

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

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows need exterior painting and sealing every few years. Bypass those chores with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which feature interior wood window frames. These aluminum-clad exteriors resist fading and look great 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 choose from woods like pine, Douglas fir and mahogany. As well as a wide selection 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 live in a historic home, wood windows can match timeless style while adding contemporary energy efficiency.

Long Lasting

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

Energy Efficient

Wood is a great insulator and stops heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you choose, 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
