Making any changes to your home is a big decision. You need to find the best local contractor for your needs in Wheaton, IL. You will need an honest, knowledgeable, and communicative window contractor

One way to find the best contractor for your needs is to interview several companies. Narrow your list down to two or three and make a decision. Opal Enterprises is one of the leading contractors in the area. 

We have been providing services in Wheaton since 2003. We know the area, and we know what homeowners want. 

How to Prepare for a Window Remodel 

Typically, window remodeling projects will take two to three days. Depending on the size of your home and any other concerns that arise, the timeline can be longer. 

Opal will work with you weeks before establishing a timeline and solidifying dates for the project to commence. You can also speak with your project manager throughout the process to ensure that any questions or concerns you may have are addressed. 

Many homeowners will take time off work to be present for the project’s duration. Window projects are relatively simple and do not take long. But if you cannot be present, have a trusted friend or family stay. If that is not an option, the homeowner must be ready to take calls from the crew leader or project manager.

Questions to Ask Your Contractor

When you meet with a window contractor, you will have many questions. You may not think of some questions, but you should, as they are essential to determine if this is the right contractor. Some questions you should ask are:

Do You Carry General Liability and Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

The answer should always be yes. General liability insurance protects the property from any damage, and workers’ compensation protects homeowners from liability for any injuries. 

Will You Pull All Building Permits?

It is vital to have permits before doing any work on the home’s exterior. When a contractor pulls permits, the homeowner can rest assured that the contractor will do the job to code. 

Who Will Be in Charge? Who Do I Contact?

It is essential to have a point of contact at the worksite. When you have a question or concern, you need to know who to speak to. Opal will assign one project manager to your job. 

However, the project manager will not always be present at the worksite. We will also have a crew leader at each site that is easily accessible to you.

What Happens to the Debris?

An experienced contractor will clean up after themselves. Depending on the project, you may need a dumpster on site. Smaller projects will have a designated area where the crew will store the debris until the final clean-up.
