Deciding to replace the windows in your Downers Grove, IL, home is an investment that can save you money in the long run, especially if your current windows are drafty. The Illinois winter can be unforgiving, which is why you should look into replacing your windows the moment you find a draft or if they are 15 years or older.
A common myth about window replacement is that the project cannot be completed in the winter months. If you work with the right company, like Opal Exteriors, you can replace your windows and doors during the winter season in Downers Grove, IL, with ease and without your family freezing during the duration of the project.
Windows and Doors Removed One at a Time
At Opal Exteriors, we understand how harsh the winter can be in Downers Grove, IL. That’s why we remove one window or door at a time during a replacement project. You might notice other window replacement projects where all of the windows are removed at once. These projects typically occur during fair-weather seasons. This type of plan just won’t work in the winter months in Illinois, which is why we remove windows one at a time.
We will not remove another window until a new one has been installed where the first one was located. By replacing just one window at a time, we are able to keep the temperature in your home at a liveable temperature. This will lengthen the time it takes to complete the project but will not be a drain on your energy bills.
We Use Plastic Walls
When replacing windows or doors in the winter months, the Opal Exteriors team will use plastic walls. These are thick sheets of plastic that can be hung from the floor to the ceiling, covering the opening where the door or window once was located. These are especially helpful when removing a door or a large window such as a bay or bow window that has multiple panes.
We Close Doors to Affected Rooms
If you are having the windows replaced in all of the bedrooms of your Downers Grove, IL, home, we will close the doors to those rooms while the windows are being replaced. Keeping the doors closed will ensure that as little cold air as possible permeates further into the home.

Temperature-Appropriate Sealants for Winter Window Replacement
When you are seeking Downers Grove, IL, winter window installation, the Opal Exteriors team will use temperature-appropriate sealants. Most caulk products shouldn’t be used in extreme temperatures, however, there are sealants on the market that can be used in cold temperatures. We use those sealants, which take a little longer than normal to harden but do not make it impossible to replace windows in the winter.
