Pella Patio Doors - Pro line vs Thermostar /designer

patrice607November 8, 2009

I am looking for two 6 ft patio door to replace a couple of 25 year old Andersens. I got quotes on the Pella today from Menards and Loews. Menards price was $1,000. less than Loews. Loews calls theirs Thermostar and Menards has pro-line and designer series. I want the Kitchen door to have the blind between the glass. The family room door will go without blinds to save money. I have looks at Pellas web site and don't see any major differences between the products. This is a dark room so I want as much glass as I can get. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My advice would be to buy something other than Pella, look at the 200 series Andersen, call a local LUMBER YARD or WINDOW CENTER and see what they have, stay away from Box Stores. But again this is my OPINION take it for what it's worth, but do a search on here for Pella and see what you come up with.
