If you want the largest view you can get out of a single window, then what you’re looking for is a picture window. These windows are large single sheets of glass that let in the most natural light of any single window, and the best unobstructed view. But you should leave picture window installation to professionals.
Because these windows are so large, you need special tools to transport, lift, and install them. Opal Enterprises has the team, the tools, and the connections with window manufacturers to install the perfect picture window in your home.
Why Install a Picture Window in Your Downers Grove Home?
Homeowners usually put picture windows in living rooms or in whichever room is facing the best view of the area. By installing a picture window, your home will get:
- More light: An east-facing picture window will bring in lots of sunshine in the morning for breakfast, while a west-facing one will let you contemplate the sunset and get gorgeous colors.
- Lower energy bills: If you’re replacing inefficient windows with a large picture window, we can recommend features that will reduce your energy consumption and your energy bills thanks to insulation.
- An excellent view: When you look out of your picture window, it’s like framing your neighborhood in glass. You get a wide and unobstructed view through the window. It goes the other way too, so it’s a good way to show off your interior design to the neighbors (or an excuse to get big curtains!)
- Opal Enterprises’s quality craftsmanship: We only work with the highest-quality window brands and with installers trained by the manufacturers. All of our installations are highly functional and visually stunning!

Picture Window Materials
Opal Enterprises has picture windows in several materials for your installation project in Downers Grove. Each material has strengths and weaknesses. If you don’t know which is best for your project, here is a breakdown of the basics. Our window installers can tell you more.
Wood is the classic choice for windows. It has excellent insulation qualities, can be painted any color, and has a higher perceived value than other window materials. We source all of our wood material from sustainable sources certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Wood is also expensive and exposed exterior wood is open to rot or insect damage. It can be painted or clad with an aluminum or vinyl cover for protection.
Composite window frames are made with a mixture of thermoplastic polymers and wood fiber. This makes them very resistant to rotting and moisture damage, and without the worries of flaking, blistering, or corrosion like other window types.
The composite windows we use all come from Andersen Windows, one of the oldest and most trusted window manufacturers in the nation.
Vinyl is the inexpensive choice. While still low-maintenance, durable, and energy-efficient, vinyl windows have one major downside. They cannot be painted a different color. But, if one of our vinyl shades matches, you won’t have to worry about replacing your vinyl frame for as long as 40 years!
Also, if you hate to paint at all, a vinyl window is one less thing you’ll have to paint. The color may fade with UV exposure over years, depending on the shade you select.
Fiberglass sits between vinyl and wood windows. They’re more expensive and more durable than vinyl windows, but not as expensive as wood. Also, fiberglass doesn’t break down over time as vinyl does. Plus, you can make it look like wood and even paint it!
Our Lifetime Labor Warranty
We offer a lifetime labor warranty on all of our picture window installations in Downers Grove. Your centerpiece window should give you years of enjoyment, so we make sure it happens. If you’re not satisfied, let us know so we can make it right.
Simply make a warranty claim through our website. Our inspectors will see if there was a problem with the installation and if you’re still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

Choose an EnergyStar Picture Window
Picture windows are quite large, so it’s important to choose an EnergyStar window to make it as energy efficient as possible. Therefore we partner with manufacturers who specialize in energy efficiency like Andersen and Kolbe.
An EnergyStar-rated window is durable even under the worst weather conditions, and uses the latest coatings and glazing technology to prevent heat from entering or leaving through your window as much as possible.
