A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in St. Paul, MN

Published on

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Choosing 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 save it for 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, comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience problems with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should establish a watertight seal. For example, 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 reduce the number of drafts that can get through your replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in every window and door installation to ensure your products are held 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

Although you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in St. Paul – 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 smooth and simple and usually doesn’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. Most 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 top shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

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