Pella Patio Door Types

Before we dive into the cost data for the various types of doors, let’s take a moment to go over the different types of Pella patio door types.

Sliding Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors are popular because they are easy to open and close with minimal effort. They also don’t take up any space inside or outside since they slide horizontally instead of swinging open like traditional doors.

French Doors And Hinged Doors

A French door is an exterior door with glass panes that extend the full length of the door. These doors are typically installed in pairs, with one side opening inward and the other outward. They are popular for both their aesthetic appeal as well as their practicality.

A hinged door is what most people think of when they imagine a door. It is simply a door that swings in or out via hinges attached to the door frame.


A bifold door consists of two panels connected by hinges in the middle. The panels can fold on top of each other like an accordion, thus creating an open or closed space as desired. 


Multi-slide doors are large, expansive doors that can open in one or more sections, making it possible to open up a large portion of a wall for unobstructed access to the outdoors and natural light. They come in various sizes and styles, from pocket sliding doors to telescoping walls that can cover nearly the entirety of a wall. The main benefit of these doors is that the panels can stack on top of one another.

Factors Affecting The Cost Of A Pella Door

There are multiple factors that impact the cost of a Pella door, including material, extra features, installation type, size, and level of detail. Here is a brief overview of the different factors that can change the cost of a Pella door. 


The type of material you choose for your Pella door will affect its overall cost. Generally speaking, wood and fiberglass are the most expensive door materials, while steel and vinyl are the cheapest. However, keep in mind that there are other factors besides material that can push the cost of a Pella door higher.

Extra Features

Adding extra features to your door will also increase the overall cost. Some popular options include glass inserts or decorative hardware that can add visual appeal and make your entryway stand out from the rest. Some models also come with special features such as energy-saving insulation or impact-resistant glass panels, which will also increase the price. 

DIY Or Pro Installation

Another factor that affects the cost of a Pella door is whether you choose to install it yourself or hire a professional installer. If you have experience with DIY projects and feel confident in your skillset, then doing it yourself could save you some money; however, if you don’t feel comfortable taking on this task, then paying for a pro installation will ensure that everything is done properly and up to code so that your new door looks great and functions perfectly for years to come. 


Size matters when it comes to purchasing a Pella door! The larger the size of the door, the more expensive it will be due to increased materials costs and labor hours needed for installation. So if you’re looking for something grandiose, then be prepared to pay accordingly. 

Level Of Detail

The level of detail involved in manufacturing your particular design will also impact the cost. This will vary depending on which model you choose, as well as the customization features you select, such as arched tops, number of grilles, built-in blinds, sidelites, panel style, and more.
