This Old House names Pella in its 100 best new home products of 2011


New Pella® 350 Series premium vinyl windows honored

PELLA, IA – November 7, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — This Old Housemagazine honored Pella 350 Series vinyl windows in the “This Old House Top 100” list of the 100 best new home products of the year.

“If you have single-pane vinyl windows — and we sincerely hope you don’t — this triple-pane draft beater promises to be 83 percent more energy efficient. We can almost hear your HVAC bill shrinking,” editors wrote of the Pella 350 Series vinyl windows.

Pella debuted its new line of Pella 350 Series vinyl windows in August, naming them one of their most energy-efficient products. Top design features of Pella 350 Series products include SmoothSeam™ welded corners on window frames that are virtually invisible, giving your home or business a more distinctive look than typical vinyl products where the corner weld is visible. In addition, the robust frame profile with a beveled edge makes them look more like wood windows.

“Being honored by a respected home improvement brand like This Old House is a tribute to the purposeful design and beautiful, sustainable energy-saving features that go into each Pella 350 Series window ,” said Elaine Sagers, vice president of marketing, customer support at Pella.

Best home products

Magazine editors hunted for the most unique, helpful and coolest home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, outdoor Living, Home Tech and Finishing Touches. Each winning product is also labeled with icons like Money-Saver, Easy Upgrade, Perfect Solution, Eco-Friendly, Splurge or Made in the USA.

Pella 350 Series windows are in the “Home Tech” category and also earned the “Super Savers” label from This Old House editors.

The full-length “Top 100” article is now online and will be featured in the November/December issue of This Old House that hits newsstands Nov. 4.
