Seattle Double Pane Windows

Update Your Older Home with New Double Pane Windows

The city of Seattle is rich in history, with architectural styles originating as far back as the 1890s. You may not own a property that has been around for more than a century, but if you are living in an older home with the original single-pane windows, it might be time for a much-needed upgrade. Double pane windows contain insulating argon gas between the two panes, providing an additional layer of protection between the weather and your home.

Double pane windows can help lessen your heating and cooling costs, improve the comfort of your home, and even help reduce your carbon emissions.

Seattle Climate Recommendations


Seattle is known for its ever-changing climate, but as its residents will tell you, as long as you expect rain, you’ll be prepared for whatever the weather holds in store. It rains nearly 50 percent of the time in Seattle, particularly in the fall and winter months. The summer, considered the driest season of the year in the city, offers a temporary respite from the year-round precipitation. But when the skies clear, Seattle is often quite pleasant due to its temperate climate, with only a few days out of the year that are either unbearably hot or freezing cold.

Rainy Weather

Rainy Weather.

With persistent clouds and drizzle nearly all year round, consider investing in moisture-resistant window materials, such as fiberglass or vinyl.

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.

  •   What general maintenance is required for my Pella windows and patio doors?
    • Pella recommends you inspect your windows and patio doors at least annually as part of a home checkup. Maintenance can prolong the life of your Pella windows and doors and will help ensure maximum warranty coverage.

      As needed, clean, repaint or restain your windows and patio doors, and recaulk around them to help maintain optimal performance. Also, be sure to regularly check for leaks and improper drainage above or around vents and sprinkler systems that may subject your windows and patio doors to prolonged water exposure.

      Review the Maintenance section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual for additional details about how to properly maintain the interior and exterior of your Pella windows and patio doors.

  •   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.

  •   Where can I get paint or stain to match the interior and exterior of my Pella products?
    • Paints and stains for Pella products are available in quarts and gallons via special order through Lowe's stores or your local Pella Window and Door Showroom. You will need to provide the color of the paint or stain that you need to place an order.

      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.

      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 your Pella Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella products.

  •   How do I clean my Pella windows and patio doors? What can I use to clean them?
    • Clean the interior and exterior frame surfaces with warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Stubborn stains and deposits may be removed with mineral spirits. Or Pine-Sol® can be applied with a clean, dry cloth or towel. Do not use abrasives. Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. Should you need it, touch-up paint is available at the Pella Window and Door Showroom nearest you.

      Clean the window sill using the brush attachment on a vacuum and vacuum off any debris.

      It is normal for water to accumulate in the sill and track. On products with weep holes, the water is intended to drain to the outside via the drainage or "weep" holes.

      • To clean the weep (drainage) system, check to make sure that the weep holes are clear of obstruction (dirt, sand, or building materials).
      • To clean the weep holes, use a small, soft brush to clear the opening. Weep holes may be located both inside and outside the window in the bottom of the frame. If the window is "stacked," there may be weep holes between the units.

      WARNINGS:

      • Do not use abrasive or caustic solvents as they may damage your windows or patio doors.
      • Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. 
      • Do not power-wash.

      Review the Cleaning section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual for additional details about how to properly clean your Pella windows and patio doors.
