A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Plattsburgh, NY

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Plattsburgh, NY

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 is different for each window style and product, but in every case, even the most efficient window is only as good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more comfortable home.

To make certain you won’t experience troubles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should form 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 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 inhibit drafts from getting through your replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products stay 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 product you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Plattsburgh – 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 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. A number of these are not valid unless you have a professional install your products. This alone can save you a substantial amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in their best shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A key characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the professionals take care of your house throughout the installation process. For instance, they’ll lay protective cloth 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. With Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.
