Tip

Ask for help. Replacing a storm window is easier if two people secure the window and replace the holding strips.

The Pella storm door comes with interchangeable windows and screens. The process for replacing a window is essentially the same as installing a screen and can be done without removing the door from its hinges. When working with a large glass panel, it may be helpful to have another person to hold the glass while you work.

Step 1

Remove the vertical strips along the sides of the storm window by gently pulling the corners away from the door frame.

Step 2

Hold the glass while removing the horizontal strip along the top of the storm window. Carefully lift out the window and set it aside.

Step 3

Holding the new storm window in place in the door, insert the horizontal strip along the top of the storm window to secure it in place.

Step 4

Insert the vertical strips along the sides of the storm window.
