Pella Windows Prices

Pella windows prices run anywhere from $350 to $1200 fully installed, depending on the model, upgrades and options you choose from. The company sells a number of products, from the entry level vinyl Thermastar and 250 Series, to their fiberglass Impervia, ProLine, Designer and Architect wood window. This is the reason for the huge range in window replacement costs.

Pella is one of the best known window brands available - some contractors really like their wood and fiberglass windows, while others think that they have a great marketing department, but their products simply don't measure up to the price tag.

Pella window includes a limited lifetime warranty on their vinyl windows - pretty standard for the industry. On their wood windows, consumers can expect to get 10 years on the frame and all of the components (hardware, locks, latches, etc.). Pella covers the cost of installation for any manufacturing defects for up to 2 years.

Because the company sells vinyl, wood clad and fiberglass windows, the warranty terms are going to vary based on frame material. Consumers should read all of the limitations and exclusions in full before they purchase Pella windows.

Pella Thermastar Windows Prices

The Pella Thermastar is not a well reviewed window, as evidenced in their low end ranking from Consumer Reports. The frame, corner welds, overall design and construction are not high quality.

The Pella Thermastar is now called the Encompass Series and sold in certain parts of the country, mainly in Big Box stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. Compare the Pella Thermastar Series to Jeld Wen Builder Vinyl prices.

Pella vs. Soft-Lite

Which window would be better to go with? 29 windows. 10 fixed 72x48..3 sliders at 72x48..6 54x72 fixed and 10 36x48 fixed.

Pella is $14000 and soft lite is $15000

- Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Soft-Lite is one of the best brand of vinyl windows out there. Pella makes a very good wood window, but I can't say the same about their vinyl windows. If you are comparing vinyl windows, the Soft-Lite wins out every time.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Pella Thermastar Pricing

I have 2 bids for 9 windows in Houston, Texas. It's between Pella and Simonton. The Pella quote is $4700 with installation, and the Simonton quote is $11,300 with installation.

Any thoughts on whether the Simonton bid is outrageous or not? My Renewal bid is a couple thousand dollars higher and included a two less windows.

Darren - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Darren, I like Simontons, but I''m the bid shouldn't be more than double what the Pella bid is. The Renewal quote doesn't surprise me. I'd get a few more bids like Don Young, Milgard and NT windows. All three of these brands will be available in Houston.

Pella Encompass Windows Prices

The Pella Encompass (once called the Thermastar) is a lower end vinyl window (see the Thermastar editor review for more information). The Thermastar has received a low rating from Consumer Reports.

It's not a vinyl window that provides good long term value for consumers. Thehere are better options available, see our best entry level vinyl windows for more info.

Pella Encompass Pricing

We're replacing 24 windows, all of them double hungs. We've received 4 bids companies in the area and would love to hear your opinion.
Great Lakes Comfort Smart: $10,880

Pella Encompass: $12,980
Sunrise Vanguard: $15,730
Northeast Building SL2700: $26,920

Laurel - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Laurel, the Sunrise Vanguard is an excellent window. The GL Comfort Smart is a decent window. These are the two best options in the bids you have. I would take some time to think about whether you want a great window or a mid range window. The great window costs an extra $5K.

Dan - Site Editor - from 2017

Pella 250 Windows Prices

The Pella 250 window is a much better window than the Encompass series. Better design and better construction. The 250 series still uses a pocket sill, which is not a great design feature for windows in rainy climtes. The 250 does include a multi chambered frame, reinforced sash, double strength glass, as well as a number of frame color, grid, and glass options.

While not a top vinyl window, the Pella 250 is a significant improvement over the Thermastar. Compare the Pella 250 Series to Alside Mezzo windows cost.

Pella 250 Lowes Quote

Hi, I recently received quotes for the Pella 250 and 350 windows. The quote is for 6 single double hungs and totals $12,664. This is from Lowes and they refused to breakdown the quote for windows and labor. Seems crazy.

Tony - Homeowner - from 2021

Which Window Company

Hello, I just very recently found your website and greatly appreciate the information and advice you have been given homeowners. I am unfortunately on my own and on disability. I just recently purchased a patio villa/duplex type home. I have seven wood windows that need replacing. I do not want to replace them with wood windows. I have been getting bids from quite a few different companies in my area. I live in the Kansas City Missouri metro area.

My windows are approximately 36 x 53. I am looking to replace them with seven double hung windows. I do have MS and the heat is a big concern for me. It's very hard to compare apples to apples when the representatives bring different type of heat lamps and other gadgets. I have tried to do a great deal of research on each and every window and there are so many reviews. They are all double hung with full screens. I currently have bids on the following:

Arenco Solace AR90 Windows - 7581

Renewal by Andersen - 13400

Transforms Home Improvement- Windsor makes their windows specially for them only - triple pane - 6869

Pella 250 series - 7450

I have done research and pulled up reviews from customers and consumer reports and bloggers. This is a very important purchase and one I hope to not have to make again. Do you have any advice? I greatly would appreciate some.

Thank you very much!!

JB - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi JB, I do have some advice for you. I am pretty sure that the Solace AR90 Window is a relabeled Sunrise Restorations series. Go back and check this with the Alenco dealer. Assuming it is, this is an excellent window. One of the very best. This would be my pick of the bids you have by a country mile.

However, that price tag is hefty for seven windows. It's very possible that the work involved in pulling and reinstalling the windows is somewhat complicated and driving that cost up.

I would be interested in seeing how much Zen Windows in Kansas City would price out their Nirvana series, which is a relabeled Soft-Lite Classic (but you are going to want to confirm this as well.) This branch gets great reviews (under google at least) and they sell a Soft-Lite window, which is a high quality product. The Soft-Lite Classic is not as good as the Sunrise Restorations, but still quite a good vinyl window.

Pella 250 Windows Costs

Hi Dane and Tim, my wife and I Live in Longmont, Colorado and we have received three window bids. The bids are for nine total openings. They consist of one bow window, five slider windows, two awning windows, and one double hung window. The price points are similar but we are unsure of the quality amongst the three. We are hoping you can help us out. Here are the details below:

Power home remodeling:
$13,600 (same day sign price)

Pella 250:

Anlin Catalina/Coronado:
$13,172 ($11,241 if we agree to sign in 72hrs)
The bow window, we were told by the local company who will install them, said they use Alside for their bow windows. Is that a good quality bow? We plan on having all 4 windows of the bow window have the option to crank open as well.

The sliders and double hung are Catalina windows, while the two awnings are Coronados. Is there a difference?

Thanks so much for your help,

Gerard - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gerard and Robin, I don't know anything about Power home remodeling so I'm sure I am any good to you there.

The Anlin part of the quote looks good to me. I would rather have the Anlin windows in over the Pella 250, which is more expensive anyway. My only issue with that quote is that Alside windows aren't my favorite. They aren't bad, but I don't understand why they wouldn't use an Anlin over an Alside.

There is not much difference between the Catalina and Coronado, but the Catalina is available in more styles.

You may want to get a quote from a local dealer who carries Amerimax windows as another point of comparison. They are Colorado based.

Zen is the other name that comes to mind in Colorado. If they branch near you sells Soft-Lite, then this is a good option as well. (Some branches sell Alside...)

So for me, the Anlin quote is the winner so far.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020

Pella 250 Series vs. Soft Lite

Dane, please advise on quotes & brands uses: (Both quotes include installation)

Company 1 quoted Eco Sky by Soft Lite, One standard patio door and one 78" x 62" 25-50-25 sliding window for $7,897.00.

Company 2 quoted Pella 250 Series for the patio door, and Pella 350 Series for the window for $6,404.00.

Your advice.

Best Regards.

Peter - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Peter, the Soft-Lite option is the much better value for the money over the Pella 250.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Pella 250 Windows Quote

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have for me. I have 17 window openings to replace and am looking for a quality mid range window. I haven't purchased windows and the options are confusing. Of the three I have, is there one you would recommend?

Pella 250 Window: $14,404

Zen Lotus Window: $11,475

Seaway Signature 700 Window: $11,830

Anita - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Anita, the Seaway Signature is a decent window, but your lowest bid on the Zen Lotus is the best of the bunch. Toss the Pella since it's the lowest quality window at the highest price.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Pella Replacement Windows Quote

I have collected two bids for 13 windows. The first is Sunrise on what they called their V series. The other on the Pella 250.

Sunrise V Series: $11,510

Pella 250 Series: $10,025

Chris - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, I'd go with the Sunrise over the Pella. It's worth the extra money.

Pella 250 Prices vs. Revere Sovereign

I live near Denver and want to upgrade my 9 windows. I was curious which of these two options would be better.

Option 1: Revere Sovereign Model: $5,450

Option 2: Pella 250 Model: $9,865

Mike - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mike, the Revere Sovereign is the better value by far. I don't love this window, but it's a decent price, much better than the Pella 250.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Pella 250 Series vs. PGT EnergyVue

We've narrowed down our window quotes to two -- either the Pella 250 or the PGT EnergyVue. We are replacing 12 windows and both of the bids came in at $9,500. Can you give me your opinion on the better window between these two?


Brandt - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brandt, the clear winner here is the PGT Energy Vue.

Pella 250 Series vs. Simonton 6100 Series

We're in the south and have really hot sticky summers. We need to replace fifteen windows and I can't make heads or tails of what we have so far.

Simonton 6100 Window: $15.2K

Pella 250 Window: $10.6K

Renewal by Anderson Window: $28K

Branford - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Branford, I think you have to toss out the RBA as an outlier. The problem with the two is that the Simonton quote is too high. I guess the Pella 250 quote would be my pick but I'm not very keen on the window. I might suggest a few more bids.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Pella 250 Series Quote vs. Harvey Classic

I'm getting bids for a window replacement remodel. We need to switch out eight openings and have narrowed the search down to either the Pella 250 or the Harvey Classic.

Pella 250 Series Costs

Good evening!

I have 18 double hung windows and 2 bids thus far.
Pella 250 Series: $18,898

Simonton 6100 Series Home Depot: $12000

Justin - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Justin, the idea of $1000 for the Pella 250 is absurd is absurd to me. The Simonton 6100 series is pretty decent but still seems pricey at $666 each with installation.

I would look at Okna, maybe their entry-level 400 window. Also check Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris for dealers in your area. All of these brands "entry-level" windows will be better than either one of the bids you have.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

250 Pella Series Cost Bid

Dane, I have a few bids and would love to get your take. 1 Polaris UltraWeld patio door and twelve Polaris ThermalWeld windows. The Polaris quote is $15,200. The other bid is on the Pella 250 series for $14,300. Which one do you think?


Dan - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dan, the Polaris ThermalWeld is the much better window and door. It is certainly worth the increase in price in my opinion.

Pella 250 Window Costs vs Simonton 5500 Series

I’ve read some reviews and need to replace 20 windows. The quotes I've received are for double hung vinyl windows with colonial grids and include the installation.

Pella 350 Series with a local contractor: $11,400

Vytex Fortis Series from Window Nation: $13,100

Simonton 5500 Series using a local contractor: $11,900

Thermo Twin Series: $11,000

Thanks in advance.

Gregory - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gregory, the Fortis is the best of the options above and well worth the extra money: air infiltration .05, and U value .26. The next best window is the Simonton 5500 series, which is better than the Pella 250 by a lot.

I would negotiate with Window Nation and see if they are willing to come off their

Pella 250 Window Cost vs Simonton 6100

I have 5 price quotes so far on 14 vinyl windows. The home is well insulated but the existing windows tend to fog up quite a bit.

Pella 250 (Lowes): $7,400

Pella 250 (Dealer): $8,600

Anderson Renewals: $19,290

Simonton 6100 (Home Depot): $8,730

Ywinco (Local Installer): $4,340

Andi - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andi, if you want an entry level window, then the Viwinco is your best bet. It's not a great window, but it's so much less expensive that maybe it's worth it.

The Andersen Renewals quote is crazy high. I'd toss it.

The Simonton 6100 quote is the best of the bunch in my opinion. I just don't love HD installation, sometimes its good and sometimes it's just not up to par.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Pella 250 vs. Sunrise V-Class

Your website has helped tremendously. We are replacing 30 windows, some are picture windows and others are single hungs.

Reliabilt 3100 Series: $16,000
Alside Mezzo Series: $16,800

Pella 250 Series: $18,350
Sunrise Series: $21,450

Michelle - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michelle, either the Alside Mezzo at the low end of your bids or the Sunrise series at the high end of your bids. If you are planning to stay in your home long term,I'd do the Sunrise. If you are leaving soon, then I'd go the Mezzo.

Pella 350 Windows Prices

The Pella 350 is the upgraded model to the Pella 250. The 350 has all the same features as the Pella 250, plus better corner welds, a beefier frame and the optional triple pane glass. The 350 can be ordered in the same window types, as well as an awning and casement style. Compare the Pella 350 Series to Simonton 5300 series costs.

Dane - Site Editor

Pella 350 Window Pricing Bid

I have 3 bids for following windows:

5 Small DH 24 x 36
2 Casement windows with Half-Round over it
2 Picture windows 36 x 55
21 Larger DH Windows (sizes from 32 x 60 to 36 x 72)
30 Total

Bid for Window 4000 world with SolarZone Elite feature was: $15,500 (Local dealer that seems to have good reputation)

Bid for Pella 250 was: $18,800 (Big Box store)

Bid for Pella 350 was: $23,850 (Big Box store)

Bid for Sunrise Restoration Dual Pane with Omega 12 Solar Low E & Argon was: $27,950, but it included new composite trim boards (1x4) around exterior perimeter of windows during install. (Local dealer that seems to have excellent reputation)

Sunrise is only one that mentioned needing to replace wood. Some wood seems fine, but some wood does need work.

Thoughts on these bids? Thanks.

Mike - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mike, these bids are tricky because the price differences are (nearly) exactly what I would expect. The Sunrise Restorations bid is pretty high, probably too high to justify this move. (I don't know what the trim board portion is on this though...) I think if this were my forever home, I would consider this bid.

I don't think the Pella 350 is worth $166 upgrade on each window. Therefore I would probably go with the Pella 250 over the 350.

The Window World 4000 series is not a very good window. I might consider this bid if I were leaving my home in 8 years or less. If that same dealer had been working in the area for a long time and you trusted him, I might consider asking if he has a better window and would recommend that upgrade.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Pella 350 Windows Quote

We're here in KC (go Chiefs!) and need to replace 30 windows in our home. We have a bid from an Apex Insignia rep for $27,500. We have a bid from a Champion rep for $31,800. Finally, we have a bid from a Pella 350 rep for $42,300.

Mandy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mandy, the best window pound for pound of the three is the Champion window quote. The Pella 350 is a decent middle of the road vinyl window, but not at that price. That's too much. If the bid were more like $25K, I'd say go with the Pella, but not for $42K.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Pella 350 Series vs. Viwinco Ocean View

Hi Tim, we have 3 quotes on 4 windows and 4 patio doors. We are close to the ocean so we need something that can hold up to the harsh conditions. None of the prices include installation. We have our own contractor who has been doing this for 20 years and he charges $75 an hour.

Viwinco Ocean View Window: $12,286
PGT 5570 Window: $14,336
Pella 350 Series: $19,000

Nancy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nancy, the Viwinco is not a bad impact window, but I tend to think of it as ideal for more budget-conscious projects. The Pella bid is just too high, especially in relationship to the PGT. The PGT 5570 is the clear winner, but I definitely think you can negotiate this price and see if they will come down on the quote.

Pella 350 Windows Cost

I am replacing one double hung window that measures 48" by 54" -- the middle section is fixed, while the sides have horizontal sliders.

Marvin Integrity: $975

Pella 350 series: $1320

MI 3: $610

Pat- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Pat, I like the Marvin Integrity window and think this is the best value for your money. It's a better window pound for pound than the Pella 350. MI does not make a real sturdy window in my opinion.

Pella Impervia Windows Prices

The Pella Impervia series is a fiberglass frame with a thin profile and clean lines. The Impervia comes as double or single hung, awning, casement, and slider. Performance wise, the Impervia is just okay, producing middle of the road numbers that could be better.

Some industry experts cite poor design and flimsy construction as detractors of the 350. The Pella Impervia Series is comparable to Marvin Integrity costs.

Charles - Homeowner - from 2021

Pella Impervia Window Quote

Good Evening Dane,

Perhaps like most of the people who reach out to you, I am currently looking to get some replacement windows put in my home, and hopefully before the cold weather really hits the area. Thus far, I've had one person come in for an in-person visit to measure the openings and get all of the information needed to formulate an estimate.

Aside from being early, he was quite professional and didn't resort to any of the standard sales tricks. When leaving he said most windows are pretty much in the ballpark of $700-$900 per opening unless they are very large or small and that he was guesstimating a price between $3500 and $4500.

I was getting an estimate for five horizontal slider windows with the following measurements:

living room (68"W x 49"H) 1/4, 1/2, 1/4

dining room (52"W x 49"H) 1/2, 1/2

two bedroom windows (36"W x 49")

an obscure/frosted bathroom window (36"W x 25"H)

if the price is right, I will add two windows for the second bedroom which are (36"W x 49"H) and (68"W x 25"H) 1/4, 1/2, 1/4.

When the salesman finally got back to me, the quote for the five windows was an outrageous $9280 for the Pella 250 Series! The Impervia was just over $12,000.

I contacted Thermo Twin and after the salesman asked for some details about my situation, I was given an over-the-phone quote of $5400 for the initial five windows. Lastly, Window Nation gave a quote (with the standard good for a limited time tactic) for $4700 for all seven windows.

However, despite claiming to carry over ten brands, it appears they only sell Vytex windows and the offering was for the Georgetown model. I live in a ranch-style house built in 1955 with steel casement windows, so most vinyl windows will cover a good portion of the window sill, since many have jamb depths around 3.25 inches, while the Georgetown has a jamb depth of 2.75 inches.

My questions are as follows:

If Thermo Twin will match the Window Nation quote ($4700) for all seven windows or at least get within several hundred dollars (x<$300), which company do you think will give the better value in terms of product, installation and support?

Is the Vytex Georgetown's smaller frame going to create problems down the line, or are the problems associated with vinyl window structural integrity generally a thing of the past? I've included an attachment so you can see how deep my current sills are in the hopes that you can give me a good idea just how far a replacement window will intrude.

If it would be a good idea to upgrade to the Vytex Fortnis, can you list several reasons? Honestly, the difference in their performance ratings for u-factor and SHG are quite small so I'm just curious.

The Pella sales rep suggested an awning window for the bathroom saying it's a good idea to keep water out of the glide track. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

If I were to get a laminated window upgrade for the living room (68"W x 49"H) and the ground level bedroom window (36"W x 49") for added security, what is a per square foot average for such an option? Are vinyl slider windows difficult to force open?

When comparing ratings on the Energy Star search (, there generally isn't a difference in the u-factor between the products with injected foam and those without, so is there some other benefit to such upgrades?

Based on what I've written, are there any other brands or companies that serve the Pittsburgh area that you think I should consider?

Thank you so much for your time and keep safe during these Covid days.


John - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, I know nothing about Thermo Twin so I can't say whether they make a good window or not. However, I have heard of most companies so I would be wary about going with a company that is this unknown. Window Nation is a known quantity and sells Vytex windows. The Grandview is a good window, the Fortis is a very good window. Here are my write ups for them. As to whether you should upgrade to them would depend on your budget and how long you intend to stay in the home.

The Window Nation Grandview Series

The Vytex Fortis Series

Many people do use an awning window in the bathroom. Do you have to, no. More on personally preference here.

Typically laminate glass will be a $75 to $100 upgrade per window.

The injected foam will help a bit with energy efficiency, but will increase the strength of the frame. It's a nice upgrade, but not necessary. This is a tough question to answer for someone else's project.

Pella Impervia Quote

I are doing a pretty massive remodel and have gotten some pretty hefty price tags for the windows. In all, we need 42 replacement windows, ten of which are arch topped and expensive.

Replacement by Anderson: $90K

Sunrise Restoration: $48K

Pella Impervia: $55K

Van - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Van, those are some hefty price tags indeed! The Sunrise Restorations are the best value by far and will offer you the best performance and long term durability. And they are the cheapest bid!

Pella Impervia Pricing vs. Marvin Infinity

We live near on busy street and need to improve our windows for both energy costs and to reduce the noise. We are replacing 25 windows and we were hoping to could give us an opinion on our two main quotes.

Pella Impervia: $24,600

Marvin Infinity: $27,580

Mike - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mike, I'm not a huge proponent of the Impervia, I just don't think its a well made window. The Marvin Infinity is a very good fiberglass window and well worth the $3,000 premium they are charging.

Pella Proline Windows Prices

The Pella Proline is the entry level wood window, although it is now called the 450 Series. The ProLine has an aluminum cladding exterior and is a decent enough entry level wood window. It is available in a variety of frame colors and options.

Compare the Pella Proline Series to the Andersen 200 Series.

Pella 400 vs. Marvin Ultimate

We're replacing 17 double hungs, 10 of which are big.
Renewal Window: $27.5K
Marvin Ultimate Window: $18K
Zen Lotus Window: $12K

Sierra Pacific Window: $9k
Pella 400 Window: $20K

Nelly - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nelly, the Renewal price quote is too high. The Ultimate bid is good and the Pella bid is not bad. However, the Zen Lotus offers the best value for your money. That's the one I would pursue.

Pella 450 vs Andersen 100 Composite

Hi Dane, I'm getting quotes on a remodel that includes 17 windows, either from Pella or Renewal By Anderson. The prices seem very very high to me.

Renewal By Anderson Quote: $33.4K
Pella 450 Quote: $24.5K

Dorine - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dorine, those price quotes are quite high for 17 windows, although wood windows tend to be quite pricey. (I understand the the Renewal is not a wood window, but their bids area always some of the highest on the market.) I would keep searching if I were you, perhaps you should get some bids from the top tier vinyl window manufacturers like Okna, Sunrise and Soft-Lite.

Pella Proline 450 Double Hungs

Your site has been very helpful during my process and I will be sure to recommend the site to my friends.

Could you sanity check this cost? As I do more research, I think it seems high.

7 Pella Proline 450 Series – Double Hung

Comes with an SDL grille. Glass is Insulated Low-E Insulating

Total cost with installation: $8,500.

There are some complicated issues with the installation (removing some old air conditioners etc.) but ~$1200 per window seems high for the Proline series.

Patrick - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Patrick, the Pella Proline 450 Series is the company's entry level wood window and not a product that I would recommend. Before consumers decide on wood, I always feel obligated to mention the drawbacks -- expensive, doesn't last as long, lower energy efficiency, and requires periodic staining and maintenance. The plus of course is that it's beautiful to look at.

Pella is an expensive brand and I feel as though only their Designer and Architect series are good products. They are also very pricey.

I'd rather you go with the Andersen 400 series if you are set on wood clad, which I would think might be in the $1200 per window range (I can't say for sure of course with the installation requirements though).

I agree that $1200 per window is high, but honestly when it comes to wood windows, it isn't crazy expensive.

I would certainly recommend getting a few more bids to see whether the Pella bid is way out of line. Nearly all window bids are free and you'll be surprised by how different the bids might come in at.

The other thing you might consider is to go with a high end vinyl window from a company like Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite or Polaris. These companies offer their premium lines in interior woodgrains that do a pretty darn good job of looking like wood -- there is healthy disagreement on this point but you should see one or two to see where you stand.

You might be able to get a high end woodgrain vinyl window for $750 to $900 per window (assuming complex installation) and you'd get a better warranty, much better performance, and a maintenance free window.

Something to think about :)

All The Best.

Pella ProLine Windows Bid

Hi Tim, I recently received an estimate for full frame replacement for 4 double hung ProLine windows and 2 ProLine awning vent windows for basically $10k in Philadelphia (direct from Pella sales). Wanted to get gut check as to whether or not that is a reasonable estimate. Thanks.

KC- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

KC, the Pella Proline window is their entry level wood window, also sometimes called their 450 Series, depending on where you purchase from. Based on the numbers you are talking, i would surmise you are paying roughly $1000 per window, which is too much in my opinion for a non top-of-the-line wood clad window. Before you go spending $10K on 6 windows, you really need to get a few more bids.

For instance, while I'm not a big fan of Jeld Wen vinyl windows, they actually make a wood clad window in which the wood comes with a lifetime warranty (compare this to the Pella which probably comes with a 15 or 20 year warranty). Jeld Wen uses an aura last wood treatment that allows them to offer the lifetime warranty and the windows are usually like $300 to $500 in the big box stores, depending on all the bells and whistles. At $500 a pop for installation (the very top of what you should be spending for new construction), you'd be looking at $6K at most - and you get a lifetime warranty. There is an argument to be made that Jeld Wen is not Pella and I would agree with the overall statement, except that you are buying Pellas low end wood window.

Other wood windows to consider include the Marvin Integrity (with the real wood interior), the Andersen 400 series, and the Marvin Ultimate wood clad window.

I would be remiss if I didn't suggest that you look at a top-tier vinyl window with a wood veneer. Sunrise and Okna both make excellent looking windows that come in interior veneers -- these top tier vinyl windows blow the doors off any wood window in terms of performance, require no maintenance, and won't break down over time the way that an organic material such as wood will. Okna windows prices should run in the $600 to $900 per window installed for new construction. If nothing else, you should take a look to rule out.

Pella Wood Window Costs

Hi Dane. We received bids from Renewal By Andersen and Pella for 16 casement windows and 2 sliding glass doors. RBA was their Fibrex window with Low E4 glass with SmartSun. Their bid was about $58,000.

Pella's bid for wood windows with Advanced Low E glass with a 3rd panel but no built in shades was $89,000, or $74,000 with only 2 panes, same glass.

Both seem crazy expensive to me.

The U-factors were close, .24 for RBA and .25 for Pella.

We're pretty sure we don't want vinyl, but are quite concerned about these estimates so we might consider it.

Have you ever heard of Simonton or Restorations Windows? Any good?

Any advice for us would be appreciated.


Marc - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marc, wow those bids are really high, even for Renewal. Pella wood windows are expensive, but 16 windows and two doors for $74K. I have noticed that during Covid, bids have been crazy high. could go with the Sunrise Restorations, which is a vinyl/fiberglass window. Excellent window. Those might run in that $1000 range for windows, although your installation requirements will dictate a lot in terms of per window price. Doors might be $2K to $3K or more, it really depends on the size, etc. It would blow the doors off the Renewal or a Pella wood window in terms of air infiltration, which is the best indicator of energy efficiency.

Simonton makes a solid, but not great, vinyl window.

Most high end vinyl windows come in a wood laminate that mimics the look of wood, but still gets you the four advantages of vinyl over wood: price, maintenance, warranty, and energy efficiency. You should take a look to see if they pass muster.

Fiberglass will typically run 30% more than vinyl. Marvin is the fiberglass manufacturer that I usually recommend. The Essential and Elevate series are quite nice and one is offered in a wood interior. The Elevate is the wood interior I believe.

If you are interested in a high end vinyl, this is what I would go with in the wood laminate interior.

Pella Designer Window Quote

I have 23 windows and 3 patio doors to replace. Two bids and very different bids at that.

Pella Designer Window: $60,000

Window World 4000 Window: $22,000

Ann - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ann, the Pella Designer is a great wood window but the bid you have seems pretty excessive to me. Even if the patio doors are $3K each, you are paying $51,000 for 23 windows. That's a pretty penny. I'd keep looking. I'd definitely keep looking past the WW4000 model, which is a low quality vinyl window.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Pella Designer Window Cost

I was quoted $10,000 by Pella windows for XOX picture window (large) and 1 standard replacement. This was for the Pella Designer series. The bid included all the work and the windows themselves.

Kathie - Homeowner - from 2018

Pella 750 Designer Series Costs

Hi Tim, I recently received a quote for 24 double sash windows for my house. The Pella 750 Designer series with blinds and grills in the top sash and blinds in the bottom sash. Total price came to $39000. Does that sound reasonable? Thanks

Harjot - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Harjot, paying over $1600 per window is quite pricey. The Pella Designer window is quite nice, but I would say that before spending $40K, you might want to at least get a few more bids and see what's out there. Pella is a large company and they spend a lot on advertising and marketing that then goes into that final consumer price tag.

In terms of top quality wood windows, I would suggest taking a look at the Andersen 400 window, the Milgard Essence, and perhaps a Loewen (if available). The Milgard Essence will offer you the best value, although the Andersen should be much better priced than the 750 series quote you have right now of course, I have no idea what your project details are.

One other option to consider -- a top tier vinyl window with a wood laminate interior. Wood windows are undoubtedly beautiful, but high quality vinyl windows offer much better energy efficiency, require no maintenance, offer a lifetime warranty (instead of a 10, 15 or 20 year), and are much less expensive. Brands to consider include Okna, Sunrise and Soft-Lite, all of which can be ordered in faux wood interiors. The laminates are good looking not as beautiful as a real wood -- but not that far off.

It might be worth it to get a bid and just see for yourself. You would probably be looking at half the cost for a window that will blow the doors off a wood clad window in terms of energy efficiency.

Pella Architect Windows Cost

The Pella Architect window is rightly considered a top rated wood window, with tons of custom options and features to choose from to make a complete custom window. The Architect model is expensive, but does get good reviews from both homeowners and contractors alike. Compare the Pella Architect Series to Kolbe window costs.

Dane - Site Editor

Pella Architect Series Cost

Thank you. We are going to visit a store today that install a couple of the brands you listed.

We really like the wood on the inside b/c that’s what the hone has now and it matches our interior doors. Pella came back and said they could do the Architect series for $58k. Is that a high estimate for that window?


Dwight - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dwight , $58K is not cheap, but it's about what I would expect for a high quality wood window. If you like the look of wood, ask the Okna or Sunrise rep to show you their wood laminate options. (Or just check out their websites.) They look quite a bit like real wood species and they don't come with the hassle, or expense of wood clad windows. Plus, they last a whole lot longer. But I get it, some people love the look of real wood and I have to admit, wood windows are gorgeous if you willing to deal with the downsides.

Pella Architect Series Fixed Window Pricing

Dane, I am a glazing contractor in Charlotte, NC and have been asked to price (56) windowsfor Pella Architect Series Fixed Windows. Stumbled upon your site in a search for pricing on Pella Architect windows and I found your reviews to be very helpful in terms of general pricing. Do you guys do specific price requests for this product, or is this all done internally through Pella.

Best regards.

Alex - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alex, unfortunately we don't have any price sheets for the Pella Architect Series. I would call up a local Pella rep/dealer and see if you can get pricing from them. They should have no problem providing you with this information. As far as their mark up or dealer pricing goes, I'm not privy to this information.

Pella Architect vs Marvin Wood Windows

We are replacing 18 different window openings with a total of 28 windows (10 of the openings have an awning at the bottom. We currently have wood windows that have some evidence of rot on the wood exterior and some with rot at the bottom of the casement. These are large windows that cover spans ranging from 145 inches wide up to 85 inches in height. Those spans are in either 2,3 or 4 window segments. We have received quotes from Marvin Windows for their aluminum clad wood windows ($37,400), Pella Proline ($26,300), Pella Architect series ($31,600) and Sunrise Restoration series ($28,500). The sunrise were the only vinyl windows.

The Marvin seem a a bit of an outlier in terms of price but we have concerns about Pella's quality. The vinyl sunrise restoration seem to be durable and with a good warranty but I wonder about the look and they plan to use a full frame window installation but did mention reusing the same casement. I have concerns that the casement has water damage. Are the Sunrise Restorations good enough quality to justify the cost which puts us in wood window territory? Should we save up and go for the Marvin windows for overall quality? Are there problems with reusing that casement?

Jeremy - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Jeremy, as much as vinyl is boring to look at - certainly in comparison to beautiful new wood - I have to say that I would go with the Sunrise Restoration - cheaper, better performance numbers, less maintenance, better warranty, better durability. I'd like to see that $1000 per window come down some if possible. If you do decide to go with vinyl, get a few more bids and take a less expensive one and go back to the Sunrise dealer and try to use the lower bid price as a leverage to see how much he will come down in price. "I really want to go with you and I like the windows, but they are a bit out of my price range. What can we do to work on that per window cost?"

If you really are set on wood, I have to say that Marvin makes a very nice aluminum clad wood window. The Pella Architect is very nice too - have you held these windows up side by side for comparison? One option that you may want to consider, or at least look at, is the Marvin Infininty with the Everwood interior. It is a faux wood that I think looks pretty darn good from the inside. I would hope you could get it for roughly the same as the Restoration - this would give you the look of wood, with none of the downsides. However, I get that it isn't real wood, so some homeowners can't get past that.
