A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Boston, MA

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Boston, MA

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. 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 take on yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?

The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in every case, even the best-performing window is only as good 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. To achieve this, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape around the windows and doors to manage water away from the product and home.

A good 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 held in the correct place. A number 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 having an expert install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Boston – 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 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. Many are not valid unless you have a professional install your products. This alone can save you a lot 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 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. 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 buy Pella windows, you know you’re getting a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Boston can perform a quality installation, as well.
