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

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

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Choosing 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 job you’ll undertake yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in just about all cases, even the best-performing window is only as good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient, 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 every window and door installation to ensure your products stay 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

Though you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Lafayette – are re-certified every year, 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 easy and usually will not 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. Many are not valid unless you have a professional install your windows or doors. 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 main characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the professionals take care of your home throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective covering over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from entering your home. Plus, 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.

When you go with Pella windows, you know you’re receiving a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Lafayette can perform a quality installation, as well.
