A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Kalamazoo, MI

Published on

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Selecting 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 project you’ll tackle yourself, or will you leave it up to 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 and comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience hassles 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 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 reduce the number of drafts that can get through your new windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in all window and door installations to ensure your products stay in the correct place. A variety 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 Kalamazoo – are re-certified annually, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to offer 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 windows or doors. This alone can save you a considerable amount 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 professionals take care of your house throughout the installation process. For example, they’ll lay protective sheets over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from entering your home. 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.
