After you buy your
replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Choosing
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 leave it up to the professionals?
The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in just about
all cases, even the most
efficient window is only as effective as its
installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient,
To make certain you
won’t experience hassles with moisture damage or
leakage, your installation should create a watertight seal.
For example, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape
around the windows and doors to manage water away from the
product and home.
A good installation will also include
a high quality polyurethane window and door insulating foam, such as Great
Stuff™ Window and Door Insulating Foam Sealant, which will help reduce the number of drafts that can get through your windows or
doors. Your installer should use shims in every window and door installation to ensure
your products are kept 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
Though you can easily access
installation guides for any window or door
you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. Some
professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Danville –
are re-certified annually, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to offer the
best installation possible. Since they’ve been certified to perform Pella window and door installations, the process is smooth and
simple and usually doesn’t take more than a day,
depending on the number of products installed.
You’ll also want to take note of your warranties or post-installation service agreements. Most are not valid unless you have a professional install your
products. This alone can save you a lot of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in top shape for years.
