A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Charlotte, North Carolina

Published on

After you’ve bought 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 save it for the professionals?

The window installation process differs by 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 certain you won’t experience problems with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should form 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 use 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 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 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 having an expert install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Charlotte – are re-certified yearly, 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 read through 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 considerable 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 experts take care of your space throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective cloth 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.
