A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Fargo, North Dakota

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Fargo, North Dakota

After you buy 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 undertake yourself, or will you bring in 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 good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more comfortable home.

To ensure you don’t experience problems with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should create 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 correct 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 inhibit drafts from getting through your new 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 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 window or door you purchase, we recommend hiring an expert to install your products. A number of professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Fargo – 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 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. Most are not valid unless you have a professional install your products. This alone can save you a substantial amount 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 professionals take care of your home throughout the installation process. For starters, they’ll lay protective covering 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.

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