A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Indianapolis, IN

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Indianapolis, IN

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. Hiring the right person to install your windows is as important as picking the right windows for your home. Is your window or door installation a process you’ll tackle yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in all cases, even the most efficient 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. For example, 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 reduce the number of drafts that can get through your windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products are kept 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

Although you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Indianapolis – 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 simple and usually will not 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 install your products. 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 primary characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your home throughout the installation process. For example, they’ll lay protective covering 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. 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 getting a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Indianapolis can perform a quality installation, as well.
