A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Asheville, NC

Published on

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Selecting 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 job you’ll undertake yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in just about all cases, even the most efficient window is only as strong 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 hassles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should establish 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 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 prevent drafts from getting 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 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 product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Asheville – are re-certified annually, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to provide 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 take note of 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 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 experts take care of your home throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective cloth over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from getting inside. Additionally, Pella Expert Installers are very familiar with Pella's installation methods. Working with Pella can help you rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.
