Pella Windows Prices
Pella windows prices start at the low end for their vinyl windows and increase significantly for their high end wood window series. 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 plan but are overpriced.
Thermastar Series (Vinyl)
The Thermastar generally gets poor reviews. The vinyl extrusions and corner welds have reputations for being sloppy, and the overall design and construction is just mediocre. Their poor quality can mean some of these windows are built just fine, while others have poor seals or uneven hardware. In general, Pella is not known for their vinyl windows, although lately they have been making some strides to improve the overall quality.
Pella Encompass (Vinyl)
Even Certified Pella Contractors will tell you the Encompass is a low quality window. At this price point, homeowners may want to consider something like the Soft-Lite or Okna 400 window.
Pella Impervia Series (Fiberglass)
A fiberglass frame with clean lines and a thin profile, the Impervia is available in custom sizes. Some contractors don't like the finish or the fit, but it doesn't have as poor a design and construction of Pella's vinyl lines. It comes in a double hung and a casement, with a mid-level spacer and a somewhat unimpressive U-Value of 0.33. It is a decent mid-grade window, comparable to a Marvin Infinity, but the thermal ratings and quality don't really justify the premium price.
Pella Proline Series (Wood/Aluminum Clad)
Pella's lowest tier of wood window is the Proline. Like all wood windows, the ProLine is more expensive than something similar in vinyl, but a lot of homeowners prefer the look of real wood. For the most part, if you're willing to pay for a wood clad window, you may want to consider a better window.
Architect Windows (Wood/Aluminum Clad)
The Architect is basically an upgraded Proline. They get decent reviews, but many contractors don't think they are worth the price.
Pella Designer Series (Wood/Aluminum Clad)
Pella's top wood window, the Designer Series has a lot of features and options available. It gets good reviews from home owners and contractors alike, but is priced fairly high.
