I really like this window. We don't open it that much, but we got the low E options and it has significantly cut down on the temperature changes in the foyer of our house. We have cheap vinyl windows installed at construction, so maybe anything would have been an improvement.

I thought pella did a good job. The trim around the arch was obviously difficult for them and it could be better, but at least wated is not leaking in through the window anymore.

Install Grade: 4.0
Price Information

It's a large single-hung window with a half round on top (about 35" wide by over 7 feet tall) and it was about 1900 with installation.

I am very impressed with this window. It's much stronger than vinyl and doesn't expand and contract, but it's also much more energy efficient than aluminum. Especially here in Oklahoma with our windy climate, i feel the strength of Impervia makes a superior product for sealing over vinyl. I like the durability of the powder-coat paint, and the fact that you can get it in a Dark Brown/Bronze color (unlike most vinyl). It looks great and performs even better.

Installers were very detailed, clean, and courteous. I feel they did a much better job sealing around the perimeter than the standard vinyl company or contractor. I like the fact their service is out of the same building as well.

Install Grade: 5.0
Price Information

Price was less than most wood prodcuts and slightly more than most of the vinyl quotes i received, although Champion was about the same cost for their vinyl as Pella's Fiberglass (odd).

I was not aware that you have to PAINT fiberglass!!! I figured it would be a maintenance free product without the expansion and contraction issues of vinyl....but just like a boat, fiberglass degrades in UV and I have to maintain these windows just like my old wood ones... :( Also, these do not meet the tax credit requirement, WHICH SUCKS!!!

I had some vinyl windows installed before finding the fiberglass ones from Pella. I like the fiberglass for the strength and quality over the vinyl ones I have. The one thing I don't like is that the R value is not as high as I would like and that it is lower than my vinyl windows. When I put my hand up against each of the two the Pella feels colder. One addition I would like to see on that line of window is the latches that you can find on the side that allows the window to only go up so far.

Polite courteous installers. I believe they did a better installation job than the company that I received my vinyl ones from.

Price Information

I found the price of the fiberglass windows to be only slighter more than the vinyl. I had quotes from three different places and the prices were about the same.

I was surprised to find that an old style strings / springs balance system was used on this window. I do not like the exclusions on the warranty.

They did not thoroughly clean up after themselves. Bad caulking job - otherwise the windows are in.

I admit I have buyers remorse. I feel like I should have bought vinyl windows with a much better warranty. I shopped Sears, Home Depot and BJ's wholesale who had vinyl windows.

Impervia line is fiberglass. They look good overall. The hardware I got was standard white, and I have noticed it does scratch easily. I looked at the satin nickel hardware option, but it was significantly more in price. Also, the double-hung windows are a little difficult to close at the top, especially on the windows which are higher up on the wall. Shorter people would probably need a stepstool to be able to close the window completely without at least a little bit of a struggle.
