A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Cape Cod, Massachusetts

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Cape Cod, Massachusetts

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Choosing the right person to install your windows is as important as picking the right windows for your home. Is your window or door installation a job 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 all cases, even the most efficient window is only as strong as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient, comfortable home.

To ensure you don’t experience hassles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should create 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 include 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 new windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products are kept 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

While you can easily access installation guides for any product you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Cape Cod – are re-certified annually, 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 won’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. Many 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 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 home 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. Plus, Pella Expert Installers are very familiar with Pella's installation methods. When you work with Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.

When you purchase Pella windows, you know you’re getting a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Cape Cod can provide you with a quality installation, as well.
