Pella’s Great New Windows and Doors: Part 2

As mentioned in our previous entry, Pella has released promising new lines in their Architect Series Collection. If you’re on the market for new  replacement windows and patio doors, these options are worth checking out.

Architect Series Reserve

This historically accurate line employs an impressive attention to detail. These elements include a putty glaze technique applied to grilles and sashes similar to how windows were made back when older houses were first built. There are also modern manufacturing techniques that reflect historical design for windows and innovations to allow easy wash features for windows without sacrificing classic styles.

Beyond modern convenience combined with classic style, Pella was careful to work with assorted historic preservation organizations as well as the National Park Service to ensure maximum authenticity to the look of their new products. The windows are all available as hung, casement or awning models, while the patio doors are hinged.

Architect Series Contemporary

If you’re interested in a more modern look for your windows or patio doors, Pella’s Architect Series Contemporary products may be a good option for you.

This series offers sleeker lines than the Reserve series and concentrates on beautiful window views. Of course, hardware is included to compliment them perfectly.  The bedroom shown at right has a set of patio doors flanked by full-length windows.

While the interior stain prefinished at the factory level is black, Pella offers 27 colors as well as custom colors for exterior decoration. The modern hardware is custom designed and there’s a square grille profile that creates geometric shapes and patterns.

These windows are all available in casement and awning styles, as well as direct set. Like Reserve, the patio doors are hinged.

We don’t recommend either as a DIY project.  Window Outfitters is a Pella Certified Contractor, and we are committed to providing top of the line customer service.
