Exquisite Wood Windows

Architect Series wood windows feature fine-furniture detailing that adds drama and architectural interest to your Des Moines area home, inside and out. Pella’s Integral Light Technology grilles create the realistic appearance of individual windowpanes while offering increased energy efficiency. In fact, many Pella wood windows meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® efficiency requirements in every U.S. state and Canada.

When it comes to wood window protection, you can be assured that the natural beauty of these woods will last year after year thanks to Pella’s exclusive EduraGuard® Triple Wood Protection. This treatment gives exceptional protection against water penetration, moisture, decay, mold, mildew and termite damage. Our low-maintenance outter finish will not require painting and will protect the beauty of your wood windows.

And, if you are located in a hurricane-prone location, we offer HurricaneShield windows with impact-resistant glass. This product offers strong protection against wind, water and flying debris. The laminated glass will also dramatically reduce outside distractions like traffic and lawn mowers, for more peace and quiet in any Des Moines home.

Beautiful and Durable Wood Doors

At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize that looks are important, but the actual functioning of the door is more critical. That’s why Pella uses our original PerformaSeal® frame design that provides a weather-tight seal and helps block the harmful effects of extreme weather such as wind, rain, ice and snow. Most Architect Series doors have earned ENERGY STAR® certification for reaching or surpassing energy efficiency guidelines throughout the U.S. and Canada, including in Des Moines.

From a security perspective, you can rest easy with a Pella Architect Series door. Tests proved that the Pella multipoint lock, on average, stood up to significantly more impact than a door with a single-point lock. We’ve also simplified the locking mechanism to easily work with a signal twist of the thumb-turn.

Finally, you can depend on Architect Series doors to maintain their beauty and resilience with our exclusive AdvantagePlus protection system. This optional low-maintenance plan provides unique solutions to safeguard your doorways from rot and deterioration. Ordinary doorframes are made of wood that stands in direct contact with the ground, causing them to be subject to water exposure. As time goes by, wood soaks up the moisture, resulting in rot. Pella takes away this problem with our patented rot-free design. Our doorframes are produced with aluminum, which is painted with our long-lasting EnduraClad® exterior finish to shield the surface from the elements. This increases durability and decreases the need for maintenance. With the AdvantagePlus protection system, your Architect Series doorframe will not need to be constantly repainted; plus your purchase includes our limited warranty.
