TAILOR-MADE FOR YOU
Discover how full-service window and door replacement by Pella can help.
When you choose a Pella® door or window, you aren't just picking a stock item off a shelf. Most of our products are custom made to fit your home's exact specifications.
SELECTING RAW WOOD
We build most of our products from Ponderosa and Sugar Pine. These wood species are easy to work with yet extremely durable. Mahogany, Cherry, White Oak, Red Oak and Douglas Fir are also available.
MAKING THE FIRST CUTS
Our chop saw operators scrutinize each piece of wood to ensure only the best material is used. It's not unusual for each one to make more than 250,000 chopping decisions each day.
ASSEMBLING THE WINDOW FRAME
Exact measurements are critical. Our professionals gather precise dimensions of each window frame to create windows that fit and perform to our high standards.
INSTALLING THE GLASS
Glass is installed meticulously for a seamless fit. Pella window glass features the latest in technology like argon gas insulation and layers of coating that protect window treatments from fading.
Built Just For You
We build according to precise measurements, your style preference, hardware choices, color and much more. Here's how a custom wood window is created.
Our optional standard or custom simulated-divided-light grilles create the look of individual panes. Pella's wide range of profiles is cut individually, and hand applied by our most experienced craftsmen. Pella's wood craftsmen have been honing their skills, on average, for over 14 years – that's longer than it takes for most to earn their PhD.
INSERTING THE WINDOW SASH
It takes precise maneuvering to bring sash and frame together. Pella designs undergo rigorous performance testing to help ensure they function properly.
ADDING JAMB EXTENSIONS
Customized jamb extensions ensure your window fits its opening exactly. They can be applied at our factory and come in all of our paints and stains for a finished look.
PACKING FOR PROTECTION
We conduct tests that simulate what our products go through on the road. The Pella packaging system is made of materials specially engineered to protect your investment from the hard knocks of travel.
Loading for Delivery
Our team receives special training on the proper loading of products. Whether we're delivering a large window weighing hundreds of pounds or a padded envelope, your investment is secured for transport according to a meticulous strategy.
