A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Annapolis, Maryland

Published on

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Selecting 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 project you’ll undertake yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in 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 hassles 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 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 inhibit drafts from getting through your replacement 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 number 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 product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Annapolis – 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 will not take more than a day, depending on the number of products installed.

You’ll also want to look at your warranties or post-installation service agreements. Most 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 their best shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A main characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your space throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective covering 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.
