A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. Choosing 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 process you’ll tackle yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?
The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in all cases, even the highest-performing window is only as effective 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. 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 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 every window and door installation to ensure your products are held 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
While you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Baton Rouge – are re-certified annually, 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 doesn’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. 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 their best shape for years.
