When it comes to home renovation projects, sometimes the windows in your home can often get overlooked. Many homeowners don’t know what to look for in old windows or can’t see the tell-tale signs of needing window replacements.
If you are ready to invest some money and time into window installation, your home can increase in value while making your vision a reality. Quality improvements call for a quality team, which is why Opal Exteriors can assist you in window installation in Mount Prospect.
Our Window Selections You Can Choose From
Choosing the right window style for your home is very important to do before all else. In a home, there can be various window types, and Opal Exteriors can likely provide solutions for them all. Some of the window options your home might contain are:
- Awning windows: Because these windows are hinged at the top, they are a great option if you wish for natural light and fresh air.
- Single-hung windows: A single-hung window has a set-top sash, which allows you to open it from the bottom.
- Double-hung windows: In contrast to a single-hung window, a double-hung window can open from the top or bottom sash. This way, it’s easier to open a window. The latter window is easier to clean in most cases.
- Casement windows: These windows are perfect for a view of the outdoors. A casement window will open from the side generally.
- Sliding windows: Open side to side (as opposed to up and down)
- Garden windows are boxed windows that are great for specific views and displaying decorative items or plants.
- Bay windows: A bay window is a large window made up of three glass panels projecting outwards. With these windows, you can expect a great deal of natural light.
- Picture windows: These windows do not open, and they provide an unobstructed view of the outside world.

Window Materials We Offer
The type of material you will choose for the window says a lot. With all the options out there and countless features that can be added, you ultimately can get exactly what you want.
Luckily, we offer everything from additional features on well-known materials to completely customizable window options.
Some of the standard windows we can install in your home are:
- Fiberglass windows: These types of windows can protect your home throughout all the wild weather changes you can experience in Mount Prospect. These windows meet and exceed ENERGY STAR® standards, which means that your cooling and heating systems won’t need to work as hard to maintain the chosen temperature of your home.
- Composite windows: Generally, these windows are also a great choice for any home and are made with a blend of wood and thermoplastic polymer. Because composite windows are incredibly durable, they are considered the practical choice that can handle all weather changes. These windows are able to withstand decay, rot, rust, fungus growth, flaking or peeling, and eroding.
- Vinyl windows: Vinyl windows are designed with energy-efficient features, which will limit heat transfer between temperatures and keep your home cool in the warmer months when needed. The maintenance that these windows require is minimal, saving money and time down the road.
- Wood-Clad windows: Known as the most attractive choice, wood windows are the option many homeowners choose if they want to make an impression. They provide your home with exceptional strength and beauty. Because our wood windows are infused with aluminum and vinyl, they can resist the elements and don’t require frequent maintenance.
