A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Beltsville, Maryland

Published on

After you’ve purchased your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products in your home. Hiring the right person to install your windows is 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 varies by window style and product, but in just about all cases, even the most efficient 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. For instance, Pella uses its SmartFlash™ tape around the windows and doors to manage water away from the product and home.

A proper 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 reduce the number of drafts that can get through your new 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 variety 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 window or door product you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Beltsville – 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 smooth and simple and usually doesn’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 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 main 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 getting inside. Additionally, 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.
