A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Salt Lake City, UT

Published on

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Choosing 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 take on yourself, or will you bring in 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 energy efficient and comfortable home.

To ensure you don’t experience problems 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 good 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 every window and door installation 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

While you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Salt Lake City – 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 smooth and simple 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 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 home throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective sheets over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from entering your home. Additionally, 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.
