Pella Windows Prices

Pella windows prices run anywhere from $30 to $100 per square foot, 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 window generally gets poor reviews, including from the list of top windows from Consumer Reports. The vinyl extrusions and corner welds on the Thermastar leave something to be desired and the overall design and construction is mediocre. The Thermastar is no longer even listed on the company website (renamed the Pella Encompass Series), although it is still sold in pockets of the country in the Big Box stores. Most consumers would do well to choose another replacement window option to maximize their long term value. Compare the Pella Thermastar Series to Jeld Wen Builder Vinyl prices.


Pella Thermastar Pricing

Hello Dane, I have two bids for a nine-window replacement project on my house in the Houston, Texas, area. The vendors are Lowes for the Pellas and Home Depot for the Simontons, with there respective warranties (HD is slightly better).

The Pella bid is $4700 installed, the Simonton bid is $11,300 installed. There are similar discounts but the Simontons are still slightly more than twice the price of the Pellas. After reviewing your site I am very confused about how the numbers can be this different. Any thoughts on whether I should consider the Simonton bid at all given the pricing? I also have a Renewal bid a couple thousand dollars higher than the Simonton bid for two fewer windows (the two windows are the cheaper of the nine).

We like the interior colors on the Simontons slightly better.

Thanks for your time!

[Site Editor's Answer]

Daron, I like Simonton windows, but I''m very confused how that bid can that high. Renewals are generally the most expensive windows on the market (and overpriced in my opinion for the overall quality). The Simontons shouldn't that high.

I'm not a fan of Pella's vinyl windows. I would avoid the big box stores myself, unless you have a contractor or installer that you know well and trust to buy and install the windows.

I would get a couple more bids if I were you. This would include a dealer for Don Young windows, Milgard windows (they have a special Texas series) and NT windows. Those are three of the brands that I like in your neck of the woods.

Pella 250 Windows Prices

The Pella 250 window is a better vinyl replacement window over the Encompass model, with a better design and overall construction. The 250 model uses a pocket sill, not a great design, but does offer several nice features, including a reinforced sash, multi chambered frame, double strength glass, and a number of grid, frame color and window glass options. The Pella 250 window is available in a picture window, double and single hung, slider and as a bay window. While certainly not a top vinyl window, the 250 Series is a significant improvement over the entry level Thermastar vinyl window. Compare the Pella 250 Series to Alside Mezzo windows cost.


Pella 250 Window Costs vs Simonton 5500 Series

Hi Tim: I’ve been reading reviews on your site and wanted to ask your opinion on this choice: replacing 20 windows; these quotes are fully installed; double hung double pane, vinyl, with colonial grids

Pella 350 – through local contractor $11,400

Vytex Fortis – Window Nation - $13,100

Simonton 5500 – through local contractor - $11,900

Thermo Twin - $11,000

We like the look of the Pella with the seamless corners, but from what I can tell the Fortis may be a better window? Is the fortis worth the extra money, or is there still room for them to come down on the quote?

Thanks for your help.

Gregory - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gregory, the Vytex Fortis is definitely the better of the two windows, no question. It's a good window with the following performance numbers in their standard low-e glass package -- U value .26, SHGC .29, VT value of .53, and air infiltration .05 Is it worth the extra money, I think it is. I would take the Simonton 5500 over the Pella 250 to be honest with you. I would take the Fortis over the 5500 though for an extra $1200.

If I were you, I would go back to Window Nation and say that the $13.1K is out of your price range and you can get the Pella for considerably less. If they could come close to the price that Pella is offering, you would sign that day with them. Give them a few days to get back to you. The worst they can say is no...

Pella 250 Window Cost vs Simonton 6100

I’m so happy that I found your web site. It has been of great help to me. I have received 5 proposals for the replacement of 14 Vinyl windows in a 20 year old modular built weekend home. The home is draft free and well insulated. However , many of the sashes have fogged up to a point where 8 out of 14 are no longer translucent.

Lowes : $ 7,406.00 for Pella 250 series

Pella Dealer $ 10 ,778.00 for same as above Pella 250. After sharing Lowes quote price Pella went to $ 8,600.00. “ Our installers are better than Lowes “

Anderson Replacement $ 28,557.00 One year Price …… $ 19,293.00 30 Day price … J ….. I asked him to requote without the glass.

Home Depot … Simonton 6100 $ 8,729.00.

Local Glass Company . “Chuck in a Truck” ….. Ywinco .. $ 310.00 Per window installed .. $ 4,340.00. …………… Too good to be true

On a second home we had six 35 year old wooden single pane windows replaced with Ideal Windows. The installation was first class. However , I have not been impressed with the quality of the windows. ………….. In Ideal’s favor they have come out to the home on two occasions to address some warranty issues at no charge.

That brings up another option. ………….. A window mechanic suggested that I could replace just the insulated glass units in the affected windows. There are no issues with current windows with the exception of the seals that caused the fogging. I have a glass shop quoting me this option. They suggested that inconsistent temperatures in the home may have accelerated the seal failures.

I have run the Gauntlet the box stores and heavily marketed windows. I’m now looking for local contractors. However , the home is in a rural area and finding people is difficult.

Andy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andy, you have some very diverging estimates, that's for sure. The Pella 250 is their low end vinyl window and although the 250 is better than older Pella vinyl windows, it wouldn't be anywhere near my top choice. The Viwinco isn't a bad window (they have different models so the series you were quoted is important). Viwinco is often a good price point for an okay window (but now that I think about it, it is probably on par with the Pella 250), but Viwinco typically isn't going to service any warranty claim. I might go with a Viwinco if it was their premium model, The Cambridge, but again if something goes wrong, you are more or less on your own.

The Renewal By Andersen quote is insanely high so let's toss that one as well.

If it were me, I might buy the Simonton 6100 Series through HD with whatever upgrades I deemed necessary -- low-e glass, maybe a composite sash reinforcement if they offer this. But I would probably find my own installer, unless HD can prove to me that the installer they subcontract out to is really good. They have a tendency to pay their subs per window and at a low rate so the overall quality can leave something to be desired. I might go on craigslist or angies list and find some local window installers to come give me a bid on the install.

One interesting note, the Renewal By Andersen uses virtually the identical frame as the Andersen 100 window, which sometimes is available through HD. You can usually get this window with upgrades in the $350 range. Add in $100 per window for good installation and you have more or less the same set up as the Renewal for $7000 (instead of $19K!)

Pella 250 vs. Sunrise V-Class

First off, thanks for such a wonderful source of information! Your site has been a tremendous help for research during our windows bidding process.

I was hoping you could me some feedback on some quotes. We are going to replace 30 windows that are a mixture of single hung and picture windows with one slider thrown in the mix. Some of our windows our oversized (7') and 8 are tempered (either in bathroom or needed for city code b/c within 18 inches of the ground).

We plan on staying in our home for at least 10 years, so we don't want a builder's grade economy window, but we also don't need the Cadillac.

Pella 250 - $18,350
Reliabilt Atrium 3100 - $16,000
Simonton "Southern Legacy Plus" (dealer specific - not on Simonton site) - 14,100
Alside Mezzo - $16,800
Sunrise V-Class - $21,450
Window Mart 7100 - $16,023

From what I've read on your website, I am leaning towards the Sunrise V-Class, with the Simonton or Pella coming in for 2nd choice. Is the quality of the V-class worth the extra cost? That would be an average of $715 per window. Thank you!

Michelle - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michelle, I think you're exactly right with your "rankings" -- the Sunrise, then the Simonton, then I suppose the Pella 250. If you are staying in your house for 10 more years, I would say spend the extra money for the Sunrise. For 30 windows -- some oversized, some using tempered glass, the $715 per window is a pretty good price.

However, I'll bet you could get them to lower it. Take the Pella bid and tell the Sunrise dealer that you really want to go with him, but that the bid is simply outside of your budget. Ask him if he can get it close to the Pella bid -- if he can get it somewhere close, you're ready to sign today. I'll bet he comes down -- maybe not down to the Pella, but somewhere south of where you are now!

Let me know if he does come down and by how much, I love seeing how much wiggle room there is on the original bids!

Pella 350 Windows Prices

The Pella 350 window is an upgraded version of the Pella 250 Series. The 350 comes standard with all of the same features and options as the 250, along with slightly better corner welds, a little beefier frame and optional triple pane window glass. The 350 is available in all of the same styles as the 250, along with a casement and awning option. Compare the Pella 350 Series to Simonton 5300 series costs.


Pella 350 Windows Cost

I am replacing a double hung window - 48" x 54" -- the middle is fixed and there are sliders on both sides. My quotes so far are:

Marvin Integrity Wood/Ultrex: $975 (this is actually for a double slider)

Pella 350 series: $1320

MI 3 Light Slider: $610

Pat- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

I like Marvin Integrity -- however the set up might not be right for you. The Pella 350 window is nice, but it definitely isn't worth money than the Integrity. I'm not a big fan of MI for I can't endorse this option. So I'm left with endorsing option 1.

Pella Impervia Windows Prices

The Pella Impervia window uses a fiberglass frame with clean lines and a thin profile. The Impervia model can be ordered as a double or single hung, casement, awning and as a slider. Performance wise, the Impervia is going to be middle of the road compared to other fiberglass windows.

Some contractors are not big fans of the Impervia, citing poor design and somewhat flimsy construction. I would recommend that consumers get their hands on the Impervia and try to compare the look and feel of it to some of the other options out there such as the Marvin Infinity. In terms of cost, the Pella Impervia Series is comparable to Marvin Integrity costs.

Pella Proline Windows Prices

The Pella Proline window is the company's low end wood window and is now called the Pella 450 Series. The ProLine uses an aluminum cladding and is not bad for a builder grade wood window, with quite a few frame colors and options to help customize the window to your home.

However, there are better wood windows out there, including the two options below. These high end wood windows are where Pella really shines. Compare the Pella Proline Series to Andersen 200 Series costs.


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 Designer Windows Prices

The Pella Designer window is an upgraded 450 Series (called the Pella 750 Series) that receives good reviews from many of the contractors and installers who often use this model. The Designer model offers some nice custom options that aren't available on the Proline model and is going to be 10% to 20% more expensive than a comparable Proline window. The real question for consumers is whether they can afford the Designer (or Architect). They are both very attractive windows that use premium wood species and good design in the frame. Compare the Pella Designer Series to Marvin Ultimate windows.


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


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.
