Sliding Patio Doors

If you expect to get what you ordered, expect the work to be completed in a timely and efficient manner, if you expect your possessions not to be damaged, stay away. I was pre warned but didn't follow my friend's advice. Take mine and find another company.

Windows and patio door replaced

I've been replacing my windows in phases to minimize disruption to the household and spread out the cost. There are only four windows left to do next summer. I've been very happy with experience, from sales call (Devon), to installation (Ted), to the quality, appearance, and functionality of the windows. I especially love my new patio French doors, which have greatly improved the access and view to our backyard.

1987 we were introduced to Pella by our contractor.

I would highly recommend Pella to anyone.They installed 6 windows & two 5foot sliding glass . After 30 years we have juste updated both sliding doors & had them install a new front doors because the quality has proven it's self & their workmanship is outstanding.

Delivered windows that didn't fit our porch with no finishings to install

I would say the experience with Pella has been a disaster. We ordered porch windows, living room windows and two doors. When our porch windows arrived, they were the wrong size. We contacted the sales person and he’s offered no support. He pointed out that we approved the windows and that was that. We pointed out that the spec sheet we approved had two different sets of measurements. We approved one set but the set not seeing the other set. it was only when the windows arrived, fully twice the size of our small porch, that we realized there was another set of measurements they were using. We pointed this out to our salesperson but he was indifferent. The windows came as 3 windows. 2 of them can fill out our porch length. The third window is gigantic and it alone runs the length of our entire porch. We don’t need it. But Pella won’t take it back or give us a refund. They maintain this is the window we ordered. We have tried to talk to the supervisor but there has been no call back. I don’t know where their customer response unit is and our saleman is simply not returning calls.

The entire order cost us almost $14K. I am sickened that we spent this money and we have this large window sitting in our small house that we cannot use and have no storage for. As well, we chose to install the windows ourselves as my partner is a carpenter and has the capacity to do so. The porch windows were not only the wrong size, but they arrived with no nailing strips on the sides to do the install. My partner ultimately was able to install the two small windows into our porch, but it was a lot of unnecessary effort and work required to install without. We are now left with this large window that doesn't fit anywhere. We made the mistake of paying in full so we have no leverage to get any response to our request for a refund or have this window picked up and taken back.

April. 15,2018 update
I am raising my zero star review to 4 because the company rep called me and offered to refund me $1,500 for the third useless window. He acknowledged that the windows we got did not correspond to the measurements his technician recorded when they did their site visit to measure for our porch. I had to call the Pella home office in Iowa to get any kind of response. And I think this homestar site is monitored by the company. The rep offered to refund me for the cost of the unwanted third window and in return asked if I would amend my homestar review. I have complied. Still would never do business with this company again.

Window replacement

John Alexander did a great job with gathering requirements, looking for a best price and window. He was very professional and so was the installer. All paperwork, installation and follow up was done is a professional and excellent manner.

I would recommend Pella.

I took other quotes and consultations also, they definitely won!

Front door and 10+ windows

Pella is a very well organized company with professional and knowledgable staff. We couldn't be happier with the level of service, recommendations, installation of product, and final outcome. monica.macdonald@mtgarc.ca L0R 1W0

Replaced all windows in summer of 2017

Our house coming up on 25 years old, we replaced every window thru Pella, great experience coordinating thru Devon Walter and the Pella staff. They even sent out a painter to do any final touch ups that my wife had pointed out after the project was done. Pella is the higher end on the costing but we wanted a higher end job as we can see ourselves being in this home for a long time. Definitely satisfied and glad we went with Pella.

BEST WINDOWS EVER

I just had my windows installed by Pella from Toronto. I was thinking of replacing my furnace but the windows have been the problem all along. Will Molnar the sales rep was fantastic from start to end and also with following up after installation. we did pay a premium but worth every penny. I will be recommending Will Molnar from Pella to my family and friends.

Thank you
George

Disasterous Window Installation Experience

The experience started well enough with a really nice sales guy. We signed up to have our front windows replaced and shortly after someone came to measure. Installation was supposed to happen 60 days later. Over one year later the job was completed. It wasn't complex. Two windows, but it took 3 attempts. It took many more phone calls to get action. The original sales guy never returned our call. The head office had no idea what the issue was.

Patio door a big, unexpected disappointment

We are disappointed with our new Pella sliding patio door.

We emphasized often that in addition to Pella quality, we were looking for ways to increase the amount of visible glass throughout our home.

It is unfortunate that in discussing the new door – while we were sitting beside the existing door in our dining room - that we were not told that the significantly bigger wood sides on the door would reduce the visible glass substantially.

The Pella brochure says to “Get a traditional look with wide wood panels, or go contemporary with narrow wood panels and more visible glass. The door that was installed does not have narrow wood panels. The side-by-side illustrations on the web site also show a contemporary door with much narrower panels all around. The door handle, for example, fits the panel side to side, without the ample space on the traditional door.

Our new door, therefore, is not what we expected, based on our meeting and Pella's print and on-line descriptions. We have a door that looks heavy and inappropriate for our small dining room. We have reduced visible glass. It is heavy, and not easy to open and close.

Had we known that our new door would look almost exactly as the traditional door shown on the web site, we would have chosen a French door, where a heavier look is more appropriate, and opening and closing would be easier.

Our disappointment with the patio door will stay with us, since it is a central feature of our main floor living and entertaining space.

Thank you for taking the time to share your story. Pella offers an industry leading selection of product styles and designs, encompassing both traditional as well as contemporary styles. We do our best to provide clear product information though our literature, website as well as with full size product displays located in our showrooms. It appears that you purchased our contemporary style door which does feature a higher glass to frame ratio than the traditional one does. We are sorry to hear that the glass to frame ratio did not meet your expectations.
