A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Muncie, IN

A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Muncie, IN

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is getting the products installed. 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 process you’ll undertake yourself, or will you save it for the professionals?

The window installation process varies by window style and product, but in every case, even the highest-performing window is only as good as its installation. And a proper installation is the key to a more energy efficient and comfortable home.

To make sure you don’t experience problems with moisture damage or leakage, your installation should create 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 correct 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 every window and door installation to ensure your products stay 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

While 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 Muncie – are re-certified every year, 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 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. Many 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 primary 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 covering over your floor and wear booties over their shoes to help prevent dirt from being tracked 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 purchase Pella windows, you know you’re receiving a quality product. Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ from our Showroom in Muncie can provide you with a quality installation, as well.
