A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Eau Claire, Wisconsin

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Eau Claire, Wisconsin

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. 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 project you’ll take on 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 best-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 prevent drafts from getting through your new windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in every window and door installation 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

Though 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 Eau Claire – are re-certified every year, 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. Most 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 top shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A main 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 getting inside. Plus, 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.

When you purchase Pella windows, you know you’re receiving a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Eau Claire can perform a quality installation, as well.
