A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Scottsdale, AZ

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Scottsdale, AZ

After you’ve bought your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. 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 job you’ll tackle yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in just about 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, comfortable home.

To make certain you won’t experience problems 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 proper installation will also include 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 windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in each window and door installation to ensure your products are kept 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

Although you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Scottsdale – are re-certified yearly, 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. 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 main characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the experts take care of your home 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. And, Pella Expert Installers are very familiar with Pella's installation methods. When you work with Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.

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