Another winter in Chicago, another busy season for the Chicago Window Guys.
Winter or bad weather has never stopped us from delivering flawlessly installed windows to happy customers.
Many homeowners, apartment building owners, and property management companies choose to install replacement windows in the winter.
And they have good reasons to do this:
Winter is also the best season to test the current windows. This is when you can feel the wind making its way inside your house through improperly insulated windows or old windows that need replacement.
The winter months often bring rain and snow. The harsh weather can be the best time to see if your windows can withstand the forces of nature. It’s ideal to identify and block any leaking from finding its way into your home.
Whether you’re a homeowner or an apartment building owner that has been receiving complaints regarding poorly insulated windows, you should consider replacing your windows during winter. This allows you to potentially save money in two ways. First, you can take advantage of any promotions or discounts that are typically offered during the window installation low-season. Second, by installing energy-efficient windows, in the long run, you can save on energy costs as high-quality insulated windows are critical to properly maintaining the temperature in a room, both in summer and winter.
Read about our wintertime window installation project, and you’ll see that installing replacement windows during the cold months of winter is not a bad idea at all. On the contrary! It’s a brilliant way to benefit from a fast installation process and great deals.
The project took place in the heart of Huntley, at Woodcreek Apartments, about 50 miles northwest of Chicago. Woodcreek features 27 buildings spread about a large green area, dotted with gazebos. The village has an inviting country charm with all the convenience of suburban living.
Our team installed 400 of the 8000 Series Windows in the Woodcreek apartment complex that contains 162 units in 27 buildings.
Even though it was a very large space and the installation occurred during winter, our team was able to complete the project in only 30 days.
Each apartment received new 8000 Series windows.
Remarkable windows due to their high-quality materials. The windows are made of aluminum alloy 6063 TE & TF and stainless steel, unbreakable seals, as well as their thermally broken Casement and Tilt/Turn feature.
The 8000 series is designed with a multi-chamber vinyl profile. This profile provides an effective inside seal between glass and aluminum, and, due to the correct installation of the windows, the windows will prove to be completely watertight.
Moreover, they guarantee a minimum level of condensation on the inside of the window. The window also has a high level of thermal efficiency due to its HeatSeal® warm edge spacer system.
The design of the 8000 Series reminds of the traditional wood windows but comes with none of the maintenance responsibilities usually associated with such windows.
The 8000 Series window is tested for water, air permeability, and wind resistance, and guarantees many years of excellent insulation.
The window corners have been reinforced and joined with extruded aluminum corners cleats and ties and sealed with a corner jointing adhesive.
Every window is equipped with fiberglass mesh screens.
The new windows not only provide an insulated interior, but they will also contribute to more affordable electricity bills.
The 8000 series windows are energy-efficient, durable, and create the ideal interior ambiance regardless of the season.
When working during winter, the temperatures can be challenging for both the installation team and the customers. It becomes even more important to communicate clearly and work efficiently to minimize the completion time for each installation.
To minimize discomfort for the residents of Woodcreek, we installed the windows one by one. Though not ideal for our team, this helped conserve energy for the residents and reduce the exposure to the elements while the window replacement was happening.
Despite having to do the installations one at a time, our team still managed to finish the 400 window project in record time. The residents of Woodcreek happily received their windows and the success of the large project confirms that winter is an excellent time to install replacement windows.
Whether you’re a homeowner, property manager, or apartment building owner, choose to have your windows installed during winter!
The Chicago Window Guys have more time to dedicate to your project because winter is, generally, the off-season for window installation. But there is no need for it to be as we’ve demonstrated by successfully installing 400 windows across 162 units, during the middle of winter.
The off-season means that we’ll likely be able to set an appointment as soon as you contact us and deliver the project faster than during peak season.
The Chicago Window Guys deliver more than just the best products on the market. Our company is licensed ensured. We provide a price match guarantee so that you never overpay. We understand that windows and doors are an important investment and it’s for this reason that we provide a lifetime warranty on all our products and installations.
