A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Bloomington, IN, IN

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Bloomington, IN, IN

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Selecting the right person to install your windows is equally as important as picking the right windows for your home. Is your window or door installation a process you’ll tackle 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 best-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 sure you don’t experience problems with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should create a watertight seal. For instance, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape around the windows and doors to manage water away from the product and home.

A correct 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 inhibit drafts from getting through your replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products are held in the correct place. A selection of other sealants should be used to help improve product life and provide a weather resistant seal.

Benefits of Working with a Professional

Although you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Bloomington, IN – 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 simple and usually doesn’t take more than a day, depending on the number of products installed.

You’ll also want to read through your warranties or post-installation service agreements. Many are not valid unless you have a professional perform your window or door installation. This alone can save you a considerable amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in peak shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A key characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your house throughout the installation process. For instance, they’ll lay protective cloth over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from getting inside. Plus, 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.

When you buy Pella windows, you know you’re getting a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Bloomington, IN can perform a quality installation, as well.
