Pella alternatives

Posted by halgreene ( on

I need to replace TWO large sliding French doors. The current doors all all-aluminum and they are shot. I had Pellas in a previous home and loved them, but man are they pricey! Does anyone know of a good alternative? Not crazy about Andersons. Have them in current home and they had to be replaced twice under warranty for warping. For the style, all-aluminum would be acceptable.

RE: Pella alternatives

Where are you located? I personally would look at Fiberglass. Either Integrity Wood/Ultrex, or Infinity by Marvin. If would I would look at either Marvin or Kolbe in either extruded aluminum wood clad or all wood. If vinyl is ok with you look into Sunrise, Okna, Home Guard, and or Soft-Lite. I would not even consider anything Pella if it were me.
