A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in South Burlington, VT
After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Hiring 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 bring in the professionals?
The window installation process is different for each 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 establish 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 good installation will also use 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 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 variety 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 product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in South Burlington – are re-certified every year, 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 won’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. Many 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 peak 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 instance, they’ll lay protective covering over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from getting inside. And, Pella Expert Installers are very familiar with Pella's installation methods. Working with Pella can help you rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.
