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

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 was once known as the Thermastar, in fact, the Pella website still has it listed in quotes as the Thermastar by Pella. The company changed the name several years back, perhaps because the Thermastar routinely received the lowest ratings from Consumer Reports annual vinyl window rankings. This is saying something considering that CR only rates windows available for retail purchase, which is in general does not include any vinyl windows I would consider to be first or even second tier windows.

In general, the Pella Encompass is considered a poorly made vinyl window that won't offer much in terms of long term value. It's not a vinyl window I would recommend for consumers. For the price, there are much better options available.

Pella Encompass Pricing

I'm replacing 24 double hung windows and so far I've had four bids from local companies. Here are my replacement window quotes.

Pella Encompass: $12,980
Great Lakes Comfort Smart: $10,878
Northeast Building SL2700: $26,920
Sunrise Vanguard: $15,734

Lori - Homeowner - from 2017

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 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

Tim, I have a bid was on 1 UltraWeld patio door and 12 Polaris ThermalWeld windows. The bid is for $15,200. I also got a bid on the Pella 200 series, which turned out to be $14,300. Which one is better?


Drew - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Drew, the Polaris is definitely the better window of the two, even with the difference in price. However, the bid price is not that great and I would advice getting a couple more bids to round out your offering.

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 proposals for 14 vinyl windows. The home is insulated and draft free, but some of my existing windows fog up way too much.

Pella 250 from Lowes: $ 7,400

Pella 250 from Dealer: $ 8,600

Anderson Replacement: $19,290

Simonton 6100 from Home Depot: $8,730

Ywinco from local installer $4,340

Andi - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andi, you have quite a few bids that are all over the board. If you want to go with a budget window, the Viwinco is the way to go. Not a bad window, but if you have issues you won't be able to do much about it -- they won't help you on the warranty end.

The Andersen quote is super high so I would toss that one.

The Simonton 6100 Series quote is probably the best one you have. I would get a glass upgrade on the window and see if that's their lowest price. Then that's what I'd go with.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Pella 250 vs. Sunrise V-Class

Your site has helped us out a lot so far. We need to replace 30 windows, some of which are oversized and some require tempered glass. They are a combination of picture windows and single hungs.

We plan on being in our home for many years to come. Here are our bids.
Reliabilt Atrium 3100: $16,000

Pella 250: $18,350
Alside Mezzo: $16,800
Simonton Southern Legacy Plus: 14,100
Sunrise V-Class: $21,450
Window Mart 7100: $16,023

Michelle - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michelle, The Sunrise V-Class is the best window of the bunch, but also the most expensive. The Simonton is probably second on the list. The Alside is probably third, then the Pella 250 option.

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 Series vs. Viwinco Ocean View

Hi Dane, we have three quotes on 4 windows and 4 8' patio sliding 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.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

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.

Dane - Site Editor

Pella Impervia Quote

I have bids for 42 windows, some of which are half rounds and quarter rounds. The rest are double hungs.

Sunrise Restoration: $48,000.00

Pella Impervia: $55,000.00

Replacement by Anderson: $90,000.00

Vahe - Homeowner - from 2018

Pella Impervia Pricing vs. Marvin Infinity

I have 2 bids for 25 windows. Each one includes the cost of laminated glass, which adds to each bid, but we live on a loud street and need to reduce down the noise.

Pella Impervia Bid: $24,600

Marvin Infinity Bid: $27,580

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 400 vs. Marvin Ultimate

Hey, I'm looking for 16 to 18 double hungs -- 10 are quite large. So far, I've gotten these bids.

Sierra Pacific: $9k
Zen Lotus: $12K
Marvin Ultimate: $18K
Pella 400: $20K
RBA: $27.5K

Thanks fo much!

Neil - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Neil, the Zen quote looks like the best one to me by far. I do like the Marvin Ultimate window though and if you are set on wood clad that is the one I would go with. If not, I'd go with the Zen Lotus, which is really a Soft-Lite Pro—quite a good vinyl window.

Pella 450 vs Andersen 100 Composite

Pella Proline 450 Double Hungs

Thanks for the work you do on the site. This has been extremely 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 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 Designer Window Cost

Hi, I was quoted $10K 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.

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.
