How long do Pella wood windows last?

Posted by letter100 (My Page) on

We have all original Pella casement windows in our 26 year old house, wood inside and outside. They are in good shape, no leaking, just some condensation inside some windows on the bottom in the winter. They are double pane, but with no gas in between. How long might these windows last before needing to be replaced?

We will be adding a new window to the kitchen, on the front of the house, close to another window. Should we get this new window also with wood inside and outside to match our existing windows or aluminuam EnduraClad outside?

There is no drop dead date on when windows will become unusable. As long as the finish is maintained and the hardware lubricated and kept clean on a regular basis, there is no reason they cannot perform satisfactorily for 50 yeas

If they are anything like a door I have had less than 4 years old and is deteriorating, I would not chance getting a newer Pella window. The workmanship is to say the less sub standard and they will not provide any customer service once problems start to set in.
