Denver Climate Recommendations


Very low humidity and an abundance of sunshine are the defining characteristics of Denver’s semi-arid climate. Close proximity to the Rocky Mountains is certainly a contributing factor to the generally mild climate that is especially beautiful on the sun-filled days and comfortable evenings of the summer months. Annual precipitation tends to vary between 8 and 15 inches, and the winters are generally mild, with snow that doesn’t stick around for very long.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

SunDefense™ Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can help block a significant percentage of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays. Low-E insulating glass can help keep your home cool and comfortable during the summer months.

Frequently Asked Questions


  •   What factory-prefinished stain and paint colors are available on Pella products?
    • Wood Windows and Patio Doors – Wood interiors offer more design flexibility — windows and patio doors can be stained or painted to match your decor.  Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's wood products.

      As part of Pella Corporation’s commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, we use Water-Based Green Chemistry. Our factory-applied stain is water-based, which significantly decreases the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted into the air.

      Fiberglass Windows and Patio Doors – Available in colors offering the quality look of painted wood — including a dual-color option. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's fiberglass products.

      Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors – Pella's unique vinyl formula is performance-tested for excellent weathering, durability, and color retention. Solid- and Dual-Color frames are available. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's vinyl products.

  •   How do I choose the right paint or stain for my wood windows and doors?
    • Stained Wood Interior Finish – Pella strongly recommends the use of a good-quality pre-stain wood conditioner before staining Pella windows and patio doors to reduce the possibility of a blotchy-looking, uneven finish. Ask your paint or finishing professional to recommend a pre-stain wood conditioner, a stain and a finishing coat that are compatible.

      Painted Wood Interior Finish – The most important consideration to make when choosing your paint is good blocking resistance — the ability of a paint to resist sticking. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a window or door that sticks shut, even after the paint has dried. Ask your qualified paint professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't simply rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection. Expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Also, ask your paint professional to recommend a wood primer and paint that are compatible and whether sanding is required between coats of paint.

      Explore the factory pre-finish options available for Pella's wood products.

      Or you may take the color or stain desired along with the substrate you are trying to match to your local Sherwin-Williams® or home improvement store and have them custom match the color.

      If you don't have a Pella paint chip or just need a small bottle of touch up paint or stain for dings and scratches, submit a request to Pella Corporation's customer support team or call (877) 473-5527 for further assistance.

      • For a professional-looking painted finish, it's important to use a quality brush or spray technique. Contact your local paint professional for recommendations.

  •   How do I stain my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you desire a stained wood appearance on your wood-grain fiberglass door panels, sidelights, and glass frames, apply gel stain and clear finish according to the manufacturer's directions. For best results, always apply stain in the direction of the grain. Be sure to finish door edges.

      Visit the Pella Help Library for staining tips.

  •   How do I paint my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you're going to paint your entry door panel, be sure to ask a qualified paint or finishing professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection — an expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a door that sticks shut even after the paint has dried.

      Once you have the right paint, promptly paint all exterior surfaces, including door panel edges, with two coats of quality exterior paint with good blocking resistance. Then paint all interior surfaces with two coats of quality interior paint with good block resistance.

      NOTE: Applying thick layers of paint may hide the texture of the door panel.

      1. Stir paint well.
      2. Wet only the tip of the brush, and apply one thin coat. Brush in the direction of the grain.
      3. Apply paint to various door components first, such as the door edges, brickmould, jambs, mullions, glazing frames and wood frames. Then paint the panel.
      4. Clean brush.
      5. Wait at least six hours between each coat application of the paint. Finish must be completely dry before applying the next coat. Do not sand between coats.
      6. Repeat Steps 1–4 for each additional coat applied.

      NOTE: A primer may be necessary to get proper adhesion. Contact your local paint supplier to determine if a primer is necessary with the selected paint.

      CAUTION: Finish all exposed door panel edges, including the top edge. This helps reduce the chance of warping. After finishing the entry door system, allow the door to dry completely, in accordance with the paint manufacturer’s directions, before closing it.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of the Pella Entry Door Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella entry door.
