Opal Enterprises has several window-supply partners, but one of the most well-known of our partners is Andersen Windows. For nearly 120 years, Andersen Windows has been a trusted name in American manufacturing quality.
Why have they lasted so long, and why should you trust them for your next window project? Let’s go over why they should be on your list of manufacturers and why Opal Enterprises is the team to install your Andersen Windows in Glen Ellyn.
Why Is Andersen the Window Company to Choose?
The key reason that Andersen has lasted so long on the market is their commitment to innovation. They’ve created their own materials to craft windows that last decades with low maintenance and deliver best-in-class performance.
Andersen’s Fibrex compound is their main replacement for people who don’t want wooden windows. This material is stronger than vinyl and can handle the temperature swings of Illinois weather without fading, peeling, or blistering.
If you prefer wooden windows, Andersen also has you covered. They haven’t lost touch with this traditional material. Their higher-grade windows have plenty of wood species and finish options to meet the exact needs of your home. We can also request completely custom windows from Andersen’s factories.

Opal Enterprises is a certified Andersen Dealer. What does this mean? First, it means we can order windows directly from the factories. We can save you costs by cutting out the middlemen that other installers have to go through to get Andersen windows.
Second, to get that grade, all our window installers are trained in Andersen’s product lines and installation methods by the factory. This training, combined with years of experience installing windows in Glen Ellyn, makes Opal the perfect company to pair with for your next window project.
We’re so confident that we offer a lifetime labor warranty on all our window installations. If you find a problem with the labor, just call us to place a warranty request or use our online warranty request form. One of our inspectors will come out to see the problem and create a plan to solve it.
Energy Efficiency Is a Must
Material innovation is important for aesthetics and durability, but a major concern now is energy efficiency. All of Andersen’s windows go through energy certification procedures. Most windows meet current ENERGY-STAR standards.
When we look at a window for energy efficiency, there are two factors we consider. The first is the U-factor. This is the rate of heat transfer in and out of the window. Lower numbers mean better insulation. This is crucial for Illinois winters.
The second factor is a low solar heat gain coefficient, or SHGC. When this number is lower, it’s harder for the sun to heat the interior space. This is important for summer to keep your home cool and your energy bills low.

All Window Styles Possible
When you’re choosing a window, the things you need to consider before you start thinking of color and finish are the size of the window and the type of the window. If you’re unsure of the size of your windows, you can have one of our team members come out to measure the space.
Armed with that information, you can browse our selection of fine windows for the types that will fit that space. The most common window type you’ll see in homes is the double-hung window, with two moving sashes for easy cleaning.
We also have Andersen windows for your Glen Ellyn home in other styles, like:
- Bow and bay
- Specialty shapes
No matter how odd your window is, chances are we can find an Andersen window that fits your space. Want a completely different type of window? Speak to us about custom window ordering and installation.
