With Pella's 90-year history as a window and door manufacturer, a lot of builders and homeowners rely on the quality and tradition of Pella windows. Unfortunately, getting a replacement window screen is not so easy. Knowing this fact, Window Screen Pros has invested a lot of time and money in understanding the history, multiple series, and different kinds of window (wood, vinyl, and fiberglass frame).
Pella® window products are popular with residential customers especially due to their design and features. Pella simply has been one of the window manufacturers of choice for many years.
With Pella replacement window screens hard to find in the marketplace today, Window Screen Pros understands both the history, the many series & types, and Pella screen hardware that has been offered over the long, rich history of Pella.
There are a couple of challenges many Pella Window owners run into. One, Pella used to make its original window screens with a butterfly latch (sometimes called a knife latch) - the hardware that was accompanied with the screen that fit into the window frame to secure the screen to the frame. Even though there are some manufacturers that offer butterfly latches, Window Screen Pros suggests that this particular hardware not be used. The reason is simple - butterfly latches are hard to install and are very difficult in lining up with the manufactured slit that was made in the window frame. In other words, if the butterfly latch is not installed perfectly, it will not attach to the Pella window frame. Since this is a vertical slot/slit in the frame, it cannot be altered easily. To replace butterfly or knife latches, we suggest plungers to replace this older style hardware. The only step required by the customer is to drill small pilot holes in the window frame where the plungers are pushed into. Once you push the plungers into place, the pella replacement window screen is secure.
The second challenge with some of the older Pella windows is the frame colors. Champagne color was offered quite often in the 1970's and 80's but is not a popular color today. Also, with this color, the screen frame depth requires 7/16" which is one of the most thicker screen frame you can purchase and is often used in commercial applications. Although you can order 7/16" frame from Window Screen Pros and many other manufacturers of screens, the champagne color is not something that is normally stocked. Due to the champagne color being offered in many different shades from the aluminum frame suppliers, Window Screen Pros has recommended to its customers to order the plain mill frame (unpainted) which will allow you to primer and paint the frame any color you like.
Below are the three main windows offered by Pella - Wood, Fiberglass, and Vinyl. Within each of these three main categories, Pella offers series types for the different styles they offer. If you are uncertain which type of Pella window you have, look at the different style below and match it up depending on whether you have wood, fiberglass, or vinyl windows. If you need help, feel free to give Window Screen Pros a call. Depending on the style & series you have, we can walk you through the replacement window screen ordering process.
