Curb appeal and style are major reasons why homeowners replace their windows in Cleveland. The exterior of your home is what people see and can make a good or bad first impression. With Pella, we can help you find windows and doors to enhance the look of your home while also improving your home’s performance and functionality.

Replacement Windows 

Replacing your windows provides many benefits to your Cleveland home. At Pella, we have various window options to fit your needs and home design. 

Bay Windows

Bay windows are a great way to bring in natural light and provide views from all angles. Bay windows are made up of three windows, typically two that are operable at an angle with one larger fixed one in the middle. These windows have more angular lines and can enhance many different home styles. Bay windows are great for enhancing the architectural interest of your home's exterior while also adding extra space to the interior. Bay windows are commonly seen in the front of homes to add visual appeal and create a unique look. These windows can bring in lots of natural light from the various window angles. The multiple windows create a larger glass space that also provides you with a beautiful view.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows offer a timeless style and are great for creating a symmetrical front façade. Double-hung windows have remained a popular choice among homeowners for many reasons, including their ease of use and functionality. these windows can be opened from the top or bottom sash to let in more fresh air and provide ventilation. With two operable sashes, double-hung windows are easy to clean since you can simply tilt in the sashes to their exterior.

In addition to their functional benefits, double-hung windows can be customized to enhance the look of the front of your home. For example, at Pella, we have various grille options, including traditional, top-row, Victorian, prairie, and more. You can also choose from various finishes to complete the look of your windows. For example, wood double-hung windows with a natural stain can bring warmth to your home and enhance the traditional look of your home.

Another great option for adding curb appeal and modernizing your home's exterior is to add black windows. Black fiberglass double-hung windows can add sleek lines and upgrade the entire look of your home. With vinyl windows, you can get dual-color frames to have a bright white inside and a bold statement color on the outside. If you want to achieve a lighter, brighter look, replacement windows finished in white are classic and look great against brick homes. This window color provides a clean look, ideal for double-hung windows.  

Here's an example of a double-hung window replacement done by your Pella of Cleveland team: This Mentor, Ohio, home received replacement double-hung windows that transformed their home, inside and out. We installed wood double-hung windows that were more energy efficient than the homeowners’ previous windows. The replacement windows add warmth to the home's interior and improve its curb appeal. The replacement double-hung windows preserve the traditional look of the home and the exterior white finish goes beautifully with the brick home.

This historic brick home in Akron-Fairlawn Heights, Ohio, was looking to replace its windows while also maintaining the original design of the home. We installed wood double-hung windows with exterior aluminum cladding. These replacement windows also feature between-the-glass grilles to enhance the traditional look of the home and provide easy cleaning. Overall, we were able to improve the historic home’s curb appeal and update the home while also preserving it's original look.

Replacement Doors

Front doors are another part of the front of your home that can make a huge first impression. At Pella, we offer various front door options; you can customize your door's material, décor, and amount of glass space on your door. For example, if you are looking for a durable, low-maintenance door, you can install our fiberglass entry door. These doors can even give the appearance of a wood door but have the durability benefits of the fiberglass material.

Another way to customize your front door is with its color. Make a bold statement with a black or bright red door, or you can achieve a clean look with a white door. Along with enhancing curb appeal, replacement doors add long-lasting durability and energy efficiency.  

This University Heights, Ohio, homeowner wanted to upgrade both of their home's entryways. They decided to go with a red front door to add a pop of color and increase curb appeal. For the back entryway, the homeowners wanted a classic, clean look, so our Cleveland team installed a timeless white door. Both doors were fiberglass, making them easy to clean and durable against Cleveland's varied climate. Overall, the doors were able to enhance the home’s aesthetic.
