After you buy your
replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products
the right person to install your windows is just as
important as picking the right windows for your home. Is
your window or door installation a process you’ll undertake yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?
The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in all cases, even the highest-performing window is only as strong as its
installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient and comfortable home.
To make certain you
won’t experience problems with moisture damage or
leakage, your installation should create a watertight seal.
To achieve this, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape
around the windows and doors to manage water away from the
product and home.
A proper installation will also utilize
a high quality polyurethane window and door insulating foam, such as Great
Stuff™ Window and Door Insulating Foam Sealant, which will help prevent
drafts from getting through your windows or
doors. Your installer should use shims in all window and door installations to ensure
your products stay in the correct place. A variety
of other sealants should be used to help improve product life and provide a weather resistant seal.
Benefits of Working with a Professional
While you can easily access
installation guides for any window or door product
you purchase, we recommend working with
an expert to install your products. A number of
professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Casper –
are re-certified yearly, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to perform the
best installation possible. Since they’ve been certified to perform Pella window and door installations, the process is easy and usually doesn’t take more than a day,
depending on the number of products installed.
You’ll also want to look at your warranties or post-installation service agreements. A
number of these are not valid unless you have a professional install your
products. This alone can save you a substantial
amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in top shape for years.
The Pella Installation Process
A key characteristic of Pella’s work is
how well the professionals take care of your home
throughout the installation process. For example,
they’ll lay protective covering over your floor and wear
booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from being tracked inside. And, Pella Expert Installers are very familiar with Pella's installation methods. When you work with Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your
home are in good hands.
