A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Des Moines, IA

Published on

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Selecting 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 job 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 effective as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient, comfortable home.

To ensure you don’t experience troubles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should form a watertight seal. To achieve this, 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 replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each 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 window or door you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Des Moines – are re-certified annually, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to provide the best installation possible. Since they’ve been certified to perform Pella window and door installations, the process is smooth and simple and usually will not 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 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 their best shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A key characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the professionals take care of your home throughout the installation process. For instance, they’ll lay protective covering over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from entering your home. 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.
