A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Ketchum, ID

Published on

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. 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 take on yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in all cases, even the most efficient window is only as good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient and comfortable home.

To make certain you won’t experience troubles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should create 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 correct 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 windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in all window and door installations to ensure your products stay 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 product you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Ketchum – 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 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 substantial amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in peak shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A key characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your space throughout the installation process. For example, they’ll lay protective cloth 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. With Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.
