Pella Windows Prices And Reviews

Pella windows prices range from $300 to $1,100 fully installed for a normal sized opening. Their vinyl windows have improved since 2011, but there are probably better vinyl window options out there at a similar price point. The company is much better known for making high end wood clad series that are both very beautiful and quite pricey.

Pella has gotten lots of dismal reviews and lots of glowing reviews over the years from contractors and homeowners alike. Some say their customer service and windows are overhyped and low quality, while others say they love their wood windows and wouldn't go with anyone else. Pella is a big company that sells tons of window series so there are alot of opinions that are going to vary widely.

Pella Wood Windows

The company makes some excellent wood clad series, specifically the Designer and Architect series. The Proline is going to be their builder grade and isn't particularly considered a good or bad window, just so so. The big question for consumers should be can I get their better wood windows at a competitive price point. The best way to do this is to get a bid from Pella and then get bids from several other top wood clad manufacturers. Top wood clad producers include Andersen, Marvin and Kolbe, all of which such be available in whatever state you live in. Compare these bids and if the Pella makes sense for your project and pocketbook, then go for it. They make a very nice looking wood window.

Pella Windows Prices

Prices are going to be all over the board, depending on the model you choose. You can buy the Encompass vinyl series from a Big Box store for just over $200 (according to Consumer Reports Home Windows list), while the Architect could run you $1000 just for the window itself (assuming some nice upgrades). Here are links to their series/models that includes information on ratings, reviews, pricing and the warranty.

Pella Windows Warranty

The company offers a Limited Warranty on their vinyl and wood windows and doors. Wood clads includes a 10 year warrantied period on all of the components (latches, locks, hardware, etc.). Manufacturing defects in the mainframe or sill will be repaired, replaced or refunded for the lifetime of the original owner (they covers the installation cost for 2 years from the date of purchase). The company offers a limited lifetime warranty of all nonglass materials for their vinyl window series. As always, there are a number of exclusions that consumers need to be aware of prior to purchasing. Using a quality contractor with experience working with the particular window manufacturer can help insure that if something does happen you have some recourse.

I recently bought a duplex near Kansas City with 7 wood windows that are falling apart. Per your advice, I have bids on my 7 double-hungs that includes full screens.

Windsor New Dimensions: $6.9K
Pella 250: $7.5K

Jason, I would probably go with the Windsor New Dimensions in this scenario. They are more known for their wood-clad windows, but their vinyl windows are pretty solid as well. The Pella 250 would be close behind this!

Pella Windows Price Calculator

John, I'm looking for fiberglass replacements for my house. I used your Pella windows price calculator for the Impervia and got an estimate of $16,625 for 25 casements installed. This is consistent with the low end of the Pella window cost estimator online ($650-$850/window installed.....Their estimator gives me between $16,250-$21,250 fully installed.)

However when a Palla rep came to our house, he gave us a quote of $49k! We have two semicircle picture frames that are more expensive and one picture frame over a tub that needs safety tempering. All the rest are standard. I don't understand the difference in pricing. Are the online prices vastly different for some reason? I don't want to get ripped off and have only a limited budget of around 30k.

We want black frames and have heard we should stick to fiberglass for that reason (less or no color fading, peeling, etc that a painted vinyl window would experience). But for fiberglass there don't seem to be many options for manufacturers. We've talked to Pella, Marvin, and Anderson. All their rep quoted prices are way over (usually double) these online estimates. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Richard, yes I think it's a combination of my calculator is somewhat low (I keep thinking prices will come down!!! I think I'm beginning to realize this isn't going to happen) and you have some expensive configurations, and finally a custom color is involved. I understand wanting to stick with fiberglass for fading, but you might want to talk with a couple of top tier vinyl manufacturers about their black exteriors -- its an upgrade that can be pricey, but some of them claim to have limited fade that is backed up by a warranty. (I would definitely be wary, but if the warranty is solid on the point...and again it's only the top tier brands I would even consider.)

This would say you some money over fiberglass options, which are usually lie 35% more expensive over vinyl. My three favorite fiberglass manufacturers are Enerlux, Alpen HPP, and Inline. If any of these are in your area, I would definitely get a bid. Vinyl vs Fiberglass Windows

Pella Windows vs ProVia

How does Provia compare to Pellas?

Stephen - Homeowner - August, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Stephen, this is a bit tricky to compare though Pella sells vinyl, fiberglass and wood clad models/series, ProVia only sells vinyl, although they sell some of the best vinyl replacement windows around. Pella vinyl models will often be similar to ProVia -- maybe the Pella 250 and the ProVia Aspect series would be similarly priced (I like the Aspect more)



The ProVia Endure (the upgrade to the Aspect series) would be my pick from these two companies. ProVia Endure Windows Reviews

Provia doors are also excellent. ProVia Doors reviews

Pella 250 Series Cost vs. Vinylmax Radiance Plus

Got a quote for replacing 20 windows

250 Series - $17,800.

Vinylmax Radiance Plus - $15,800 Vinylmax Windows Cost I thought Vinylmax would be cheaper than this. So it seems price and quality wise, should I go with 250? Or should I move on to another brand?

Thanks.

Chatree, I would go with the company that has the best reputation and reviews. This is going to make the biggest difference for you. Window wise, I would say they are equivalent to one another…so the Vinylmax Radiance Plus would be my pick over the 250 series. All prices being equal, I would probably opt for the Pella option…
