A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Minneapolis, MN

Published on

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Hiring 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 undertake yourself, or will you leave it up to the professionals?

The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in every case, even the highest-performing window is only as good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more 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 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 stay 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

While you can easily access installation guides for any product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Minneapolis – are re-certified yearly, 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 smooth and 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. Most are not valid unless you have a professional install your windows or doors. This alone can save you a lot 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 instance, they’ll lay protective sheets 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.
