A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Westerly, Rhode Island

Published on

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Hiring 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 take on yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in just about all cases, 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 sure you don’t experience hassles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should form a watertight seal. To achieve this, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape around the windows and doors to manage water away from the product and home.

A proper 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 prevent drafts from getting through your replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in all window and door installations 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

While you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Westerly – are re-certified every year, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to provide 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 look at your warranties or post-installation service agreements. Most 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 top shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

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