A No Mess, No Guess Window and Door Installation Day in Lethbridge, AB

After you buy your replacement windows or doors, your next step is installing the products. 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 take on yourself, or will you bring in the professionals?

The window installation process differs by window style and product, but in all cases, even the best-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 ensure you don’t experience troubles 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 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 windows or doors. Your installer should use shims in every 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

Though you can easily access installation guides for any window or door you purchase, we recommend having an expert install your products. Many professionals – including Lead Pella Expert Installers℠ in Lethbridge – 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 simple and usually won’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 install your products. This alone can save you a considerable amount of money in the long-run and will ensure your windows stay in their best shape for years.

The Pella Installation Process

A primary characteristic of Pella’s work is how well the experts take care of your house 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 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.
