A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Albuquerque, New Mexico

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Albuquerque, New Mexico

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

The window installation process is different for each window style and product, but in just about all cases, even the highest-performing window is only as strong as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience hassles with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should establish a watertight seal. For example, 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 reduce the number of drafts that can get 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

While you can easily access installation guides for any window or door product you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. Some professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Albuquerque – 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 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. Most are not valid unless you have a professional perform your window or door installation. 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 key 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 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. With Pella, you can rest easy knowing that your windows and your home are in good hands.

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