A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Victoria, B.C
After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. Selecting 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 process you’ll tackle yourself, or will you leave it up to the professionals?
The window installation process varies 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 ensure you don’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 use 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 replacement windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products stay 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
While you can easily access installation guides for any product you purchase, we recommend working with an expert to install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Victoria – are re-certified annually, so they’re learning new techniques and best practices annually to offer the best installation possible. Since they’ve been certified to perform Pella window and door installations, the process is 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. Most are not valid unless you have a professional install your windows or doors. This alone can save you a substantial amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in peak shape for years.
The Pella Installation Process
A main characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the installers take care of your space throughout the installation process. For example, they’ll lay protective cloth over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from entering your home. Additionally, 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.
