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

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

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. 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 undertake yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in every case, even the highest-performing window is only as strong as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient, comfortable home.

To make certain you won’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 proper installation will also use 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 new windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each 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

Though you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Boise – 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 easy and usually will not take more than a day, depending on the number of products installed.

You’ll also want to take note of your warranties or post-installation service agreements. Many are not valid unless you have a professional install your windows or doors. This alone can save you a lot of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in their best 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 instance, they’ll lay protective sheets 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.

When you purchase Pella windows, you know you’re buying a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Boise can give you a quality installation, as well.
