Wood Types Architect Series Contemporary Awning Window

Architect Series Contemporary awning windows are the only Pella awning windows available in three different wood types to complement other wood design elements in your project. All wood types are treated with Pella's EnduraGuard® wood protection for beauty and performance...year after year.

  • Douglas Fir

  • Mahogany

  • Pine


Pella's EnduraGuard® wood protection formula has three active ingredients. This powerful combination, together with our immersion-treatment method, helps ensure strong protection on every exterior wood surface of our products. The result is advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay and stains from mold and mildew.

Because we're always working to further refine our products and develop new ones, specifications may change without notice.

NOTE: Wood is a product of nature; grain pattern will be unique and may vary on each window or door. Actual finish colors may vary from those shown because of the unique nature of wood.
