Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our sensibly priced vinyl replacement windows feature meticulous craftsmanship and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you peace of mind for years.

Low Maintenance

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

Energy Efficient

Vinyl is a fantastic 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 options that can help you save on energy bills
  • Vinyl frame foam insulation

Affordable

Vinyl is generally the most economical alternative when you need to have your windows replaced.

Customizable

There’s more to vinyl than merely white.

Make your own look with Pella’s dual-color frames. Choose a distinct color, like black or gray, to complement your home’s architecture. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help supply long-lasting richness.

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 endure exposure to sunlight, humidity and temperatures.

Benefits of Wood Windows

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

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows require exterior painting and sealing every few years. Skip those tasks with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which feature 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 select from contemporary and traditional styles.

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 complement 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 up-to-date energy efficiency.

Long Lasting

Wood is a sturdy 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 a great insulator and blocks 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 styles that can help you save on energy bills
