A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Gaithersburg, MD

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Gaithersburg, MD

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Hiring 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 leave it up to the professionals?

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

To make sure you don’t experience hassles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should establish 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 correct 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 replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in all window and door installations to ensure your products are kept 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 hiring an expert to install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Gaithersburg – 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 smooth and simple 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 perform your window or door installation. This alone can save you a lot 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 space throughout the installation process. For instance, they’ll lay protective cloth 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. With Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.

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