Pella® doors are built to last. And engineered to endure.
For more than 85 years, Pella has set the industry standard for quality. Now, a lot of companies tout their quality. At Pella, when we talk about quality craftsmanship, here is what we mean:
At Pella we continually strive to design better doors. Many features that are now industry standards — like patio door blinds-between-the-glass — were invented by Pella. In fact, we have been awarded more than 100 product and design patents.
Pella artisans have a passion for excellence and attention to detail. We take extra steps to assure outstanding quality. For example, the sash corners on our wood patio doors are joined not one, but three ways for superior strength.
State-of-the-art testing laboratory
In our state-of-the-art product-testing facilities, we continually test the components of Pella doors under the harshest conditions — the burning rays of the sun, salt air, acid rain, excessive humidity, extreme hot and cold temperatures, high wind and driving rain. And Pella tests for air and water infiltration and structural strength during the manufacturing process. These stringent measures ensure our doors will perform the way we say they will.
Continuous improvement methodology
Continuous improvement is deeply ingrained in Pella’s culture. Pella team members are encouraged to refine our processes so we can produce great results — the highest quality products and the latest innovations for our customers.
All Pella doors — and our large selection of door combinations — are completely assembled and prehung in our factory. This leaves less room for error during installation and ensures your door will perform up to Pella’s high quality standards.
In Pella’s proprietary process, the individual parts of Pella wood doors are stained or painted before the door is assembled to ensure a quality finish.
Our factory processes are optimized to create less waste and clean what waste we do create. For example, the factory powder-coat process for our fiberglass products and our water-based wood stains are especially friendly to the environment.
