Portland Climate Recommendations
Portland is no stranger to precipitation. In fact, the city is inundated almost every day, all year round, with some form of precipitation, including rain, snow, sleet, and hail. So you’ll want to look for materials and finishes that can help protect against inclement weather without compromising appearance or performance. Portland is classified as a temperate oceanic climate, with summers that are mild and dry and winters that are cool and cloudy.
You can design your home to be more wind resistant with wood frames, reducing your chances of damages to your home during high-wind weather events.
Stormy weather in the fall, winter, and spring necessitates materials that are built to last. Wood and fiberglass are ideal for withstanding the elements.
Pella utilizes Low-E insulating glass with argon to help keep your home insulated during cold winters and moderate summers
