Vinyl vs. Wood Windows - What's Right for My Terre Haute Home?

Discover more about the advantages of our wood and vinyl windows and how we can design them for your areas. We offer the most wanted styles of windows and patio doors, including double-hung windows.

Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our practically priced vinyl replacement windows feature meticulous craftsmanship and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you comfort for years.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl windows don’t need a lot of service, other than cleaning with soap and water. You won’t be required to paint or stain your windows every few years. In fact, you’ll never need to seal them.

Energy Efficient

Vinyl is a good insulator and limits heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you select, you can personalize energy efficiency with:

  • Glass options, such as dual- or triple-pane glass with Low-E and argon
  • ENERGY STAR®-rated models that can help you save on energy bills
  • Vinyl frame foam insulation

Affordable

Vinyl is generally the most reasonable choice when you need to have your windows replaced.

Customizable

There’s more to vinyl than only white.

Make your own appearance with Pella’s dual-color frames. Use a distinct color, like black or gray, to complement your home’s architecture. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help supply long-lasting color.

Ask your Pella professional how you can further personalize your windows with:

  • Grilles
  • Hardware
  • Between-the-glass shades and blinds

Durable

We engineer and test our vinyl windows to withstand exposure to sunlight, humidity and temperatures.

Benefits of Wood Windows

Our premium, high-performing styles give your home a cozy feeling that only genuine wood can provide.

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows need exterior painting and sealing every few years. Bypass those chores with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which have interior wood window frames. These aluminum-clad exteriors fight fading and look attractive for years.

Highly Customizable

From material to grille patterns to color, wood windows are extremely customizable. You can pick from contemporary and traditional models.

With Pella, you can pick from woods like pine, Douglas fir and mahogany. As well as a wide collection of stains, paints and hardware to accentuate your home.

Depending on the product line, you can also add:

  • Insynctive® technology
  • Integrated blinds and shades

Historical Accuracy

If you own a historic home, wood windows can match timeless style while adding up-to-date energy efficiency.

Long Lasting

Wood is a long-lasting material for windows. At Pella, we back our wood windows with one of the best limited lifetime warranties in the industry.2

Energy Efficient

Wood is a great insulator and blocks heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you choose, you can customize energy efficiency with:

  • Glass options, such as dual- or triple-pane glass with Low-E and argon
  • ENERGY STAR®-rated styles that can help you save on energy bills
