Pella Windows Prices

Pella windows prices vary quite a bit based on the window frame materials and options. Consumers can expect to pay anywhere from $35 to $120 per square foot fully installed. (In order to find the square footage of a window, multiply the width in inches by the height in inches and divide by 144 - a 32" by 48" window equals 10.6 square feet.)

Pella vinyl windows used to get panned, especially those bought at the big home improvement stores. For instance, according to the Consumer Reports home windows report, the Pella Thermastar vinyl windows get the lowest rating in the vinyl window category. However, the Pella 250 and 350 Series, which have effectively replaced the Thermastar Series, are considered much improved by industry experts.

Opinions on their numerous wood, wood clad and fiberglass windows tend to be somewhat mixed. Some contractors and installers love their windows and doors, while others think the brand is overpriced and feel that Pella offers poor customer service and parts replacement.

Pella Thermastar Windows

Pella gets poor marks on their vinyl windows from most contractors and pros on various online forums. The vinyl extrusions are considered poor in quality with sloppy corner welds, along with mediocre design and cheap components. There also seems to be quality control issues with the production, i.e. one batch of windows is fine, the next has poor seals etc. Pella might make nice wood windows, but we would advise consumers to avoid their vinyl windows. These might compare to the Alside Ultramaxx window. Price Range

Pella 350 Windows Cost vs Great Lakes

Hi Tom, I am replacing 12 windows in Westchester County New York. I had multi quotes and a wide range of options. In the end I have decided on a Great Lakes harbor light window. Fully installed the price is $600 a window. This was not my cheapest option and it was not my best u-value but it is a reputable installer. The glass package I went with has a .30.

Having signed the contract today I am concerned I have made a mistake. Should I go back to the installer and discuss a new window before it is too late. For context, they originally wanted $650 per window.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nick, the Great Lakes Harbor Light window is their more entry level window if I'm not mistaken. I like the fact that you got a reliable installer, but it does seem a bit high to me. I of course know nothing about the project details, but $600 to $650 a window should get you the high end vinyl window from Great Lakes I would think. Did you have him price out the eco-Smart or Comfort Smart windows series as well?

Tom - Site Editor - from 2017

[Nick's Answer]

Thanks for the response. I did not have him price those windows but I did get a price on Sunrise. That was $700 a window and a little out of my budget. I asked if there was something in the $600 range. He offered Kensington at first and then Great Lakes after I said I was nervous about the Kensington ownership history (thanks to your site!).

My quotes were all over the place from various people. $400 for a Slocomb window from a less reputable installer, $900 for an Andersen wood replacement, $500 for a Pella 350, $600 for a Harvey, and then $600 for this Great Lakes.

I am not getting the best glass option or U-value I have seen, I am not having them put aluminum on the outside casing, they are doing a low pressure spray foam insulation, and they are giving me a great warranty in addition to the one from Great Lakes. The house currently has vinyl frames from the old windows so not new construction.

I think the higher price is due to me being 5 miles outside New York City. I also am paying for the reputation of this particular installer. I suppose I am not too concerned with entry level as long as I get a solid warranty and a good install. They windows look fine.

I appreciate your thoughts and, most importantly, I appreciate your site. I would've been lost without it. It truly was an asset and even if I don't end up getting the best deal I at least feel like a much more educated consumer.

Thanks again,

Nick, at the end of the day, Great Lakes makes a good window. Assuming proper installation, I think you should fare quite well. Best of luck in your upcoming project!

Pella Impervia Windows

The Impervia is a fiberglass frame that has a clean, thin profile and is available in custom sizing (although some contractors are put off by both the fit and finish of this window). It is available as a double hung and casement - some customer didn't like the look of the double hung. It has decent performance numbers (U-value of 0.33) which is not particularly impressive. It uses a mid range metallic spacer and is priced somewhat high based on comparable offerings such as the Marvin Infinity Series. Click for more Pella Impervia costs.
