A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Murray, Kentucky

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Murray, Kentucky

After you buy 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 job you’ll take on yourself, or will you leave it up to the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in all cases, even the highest-performing window is only as strong as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience troubles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should establish 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 utilize a high quality polyurethane window and door insulating foam, such as Great Stuff™ Window and Door Insulating Foam Sealant, which will help reduce the number of drafts that can get through your new windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products stay 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 product you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Murray – 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 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 their best shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A key characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your house throughout the installation process. For instance, they’ll lay protective sheets 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.

When you go with Pella windows, you know you’re receiving a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Murray can provide you with a quality installation, as well.
