A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in El Paso, Texas

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in El Paso, Texas

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Choosing 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 undertake yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?

The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in just about all cases, even the best-performing window is only as effective as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient, comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience troubles 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 good 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 new 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 selection 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 you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in El Paso – 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 won’t 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. A number of these are not valid unless you have a professional perform your window or door installation. This alone can save you a substantial amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in peak shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A primary characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the experts take care of your house 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 getting inside. And, 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.
