Going Beyond the Basics of Window Installation
Every window manufacturer’s product has unique features and benefits that help them stand out. Because we understand the importance of windows in the home and prioritize customer satisfaction, we routinely send our window installation contractors and technicians on training.
This training is designed to help them better understand the product, increase their effectiveness and do a great job overall. These periodic trainings are important because they not only add to the installer’s body of knowledge but also help make sure that all window installation and replacement projects in Downers Grove are done satisfactorily.
In fact, Andersen, one of our window partners, mandates the training as a requirement for partnership, which allows us the privilege of ordering parts directly from the factory. Our window installers in Downers Grove will use the correct products and the correct procedures, so your windows stay strong and look beautiful for decades to come. All you have to do is keep them clean!
Windows Installation in Downers Grove During the Winter
Some homeowners incorrectly assume that they can’t replace their windows during the winter. That’s not true. With the expertise of our skilled window installers, we have mastered the art of replacing and installing new windows in the winter cold whilst ensuring that you and your family stay warm throughout the duration of the project.
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 window 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 the Affected Rooms’ Doors While Working
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.
Application of Temperature-Appropriate Sealants for Winter Window Replacement
As part of our winter window installation process, we 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.

Licensed, Bonded, and Insured
What does being licensed, bonded, and insured mean? And why is it important for you to only hire window installation contractors with these qualifications?
- Licensed – This means the state recognizes that we’re competent in our field to do business legally and that we meet state requirements to operate a business.
- Bonded – A surety bond covers your interests in case something goes wrong with the business side of the project legally or ethically. You can receive compensation from the bond, which we have to pay back to the bond company.
- Insured – Like your car insurance, contractor insurance is for when something goes wrong out of the blue like a workplace injury or property damage.
These show that Opal Exteriors’ window installers have the basic competence to do their job and can take care of themselves if something goes wrong while on the job. In fact, this basically absolves you of all liability. So, whatever you do, never hire a contractor who doesn’t have these three things in place.
In addition, we offer our clients a lifetime labor warranty. This means that if something goes wrong with your project because we didn’t do a good job or missed something, we will fix it for you free of charge.
