A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Davenport, IA
After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. 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 varies by window style and product, but in every case, 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 troubles 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 correct 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 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 are kept 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
While you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Davenport – 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 will not 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. A number of these are not valid unless you have a professional perform your window or door installation. 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 primary 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 being tracked inside. Additionally, 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.
