Q: I have moisture on the interior surface of my window or patio door. Is my window or patio door leaking?
A: Most likely your window or patio door isn’t leaking but is instead having condensation build up. Condensation builds up on the interior surface of a window or door as it starts to get cold outside and the colder it gets the more likely it is to happen. A likely and easy fix to eliminating condensation on your window or patio door would be to lower the humidity level in your home.

Simulated Divided Lites or SDL are available with or without a spacer bar and are permanently affixed to the interior and exterior surface of a window or patio door.
Q: What is Low E?
A: Low E is low emissivity and is a coating put on the surface of the glass that helps block out UV rays and assists in heating and cooling.
Q: What is argon gas?
A: Argon gas is an inert gas that goes in between the panes of the insulating glass and acts as an insulator the same way insulation in a wall cavity does. Argon gas is odorless, colorless, and harmless.
Q: What is krypton gas?
A: Krypton gas, like argon gas is a gas that goes in between the panes of the insulating glass and acts as an insulator the same way insulation in a wall cavity does.
Q: What is full frame window replacement?
A: Full frame window replacement is an installation method that involves removing an existing window in its entirety including the frame, sash, and interior trim and replacing it with a complete new window. The opening is brought back to the original rough opening and inspected for any rotting wood or damage caused by moisture or insects that would need to be replaced before the new window is installed. You have the ability to change the size, shape, or style of the window with a full frame replacement. Both the interior wood casing and exterior aluminum capping are replaced giving the unit a fresh and clean look.
Q: What is insert window replacement?
A: Insert window replacement is an installation method that allows you to leave the trim you currently have around your windows. Provided the frames are in good shape with no moisture or insect damage, the sash are removed and the new window is installed into the frame of the original window. With this process, no trim or wallpaper is removed or damaged.
Q: Do you offer windows and doors with blinds in between the glass?

Please contact one of our sales representatives with further questions at: 630-529-DOOR (3667).
Q: What is insulated glass?
A: Insulated glass consists of at least 2 layers of glass with an air space between.
Q: What is U-value?
A: This measures the rate of heat loss and how well a product insulates. The lower the number, the better a product is at keeping heat inside a building. The U factor is key in winter months, and important factor to consider in choosing a window.
Q: What is Solar Heat Gain?
A: This measures how well a product blocks heat from the sun. The lower the number the better.
Q: What is R-Value?
A: This measures resistance to heat loss. Many people are familiar with R value because of its use in home insulation, but actually, for windows and doors, U factor and solar heat gain coefficient are more important measures.
Q: What is Energy Star?
A: Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Dept. of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Q: What are the current requirements for the 2011 tax credit?
A: Energy efficient windows, doors and skylights can reduce energy bills. The current tax credit amount is 10% of the cost, up to $500, but windows are capped at $200. Products must be ENERGY STAR qualified. You do not have to replace all the windows/doors/skylights in your home to qualify. And it doesn't need to be a replacement either - installing a new window where there wasn't one previously (like in an addition) qualifies. Tax Credit does NOT include installation costs. Please contact one of our sales representatives for specific questions regarding the tax credit or visit: www.energystar.gov
Q: My home was built prior to 1978 and I understand that there are some new laws regarding renovations and safety precautions. Can you please explain this to me?
A: Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting (RRP) projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. EPA requires that firms performing RRP projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.
Our installers are RRP certified and follow the specific guidelines set in place by the EPA. First, they will contain the work area so that dust and debris do not escape from that area by covering the floors and any furniture that cannot be moved and by sealing off doors and heating and cooling system vents. Secondly, they will attempt to minimize dust as much as possible. Lastly, the work area will be cleaned up daily to keep it as clean as possible. When all the work is done, the area will be cleaned up using special cleaning methods before taking down any plastic that isolates the work area from the rest of the home.
Please contact one of our sales representatives for specific questions regarding the EPA lead requirements or visit: www.epa.gov
Q: Do you supply custom sized windows and doors?
A: Yes, many of our manufactures offer products that are available in both standard and custom sizes. Based on the size opening(s) you have, our sales representatives will be able to determine whether a standard size or custom size unit(s) will work best for your window or door opening(s).
Q: Does Woodland supply shutters and do you install them?
A: Yes, we have a supplier that we work with that offers shutters. We’d be happy to order them and install with your new windows and doors.
Q: Does Woodland employ its own installers or do you subcontract your work?
A: All of Woodland’s installers are hourly W-2 employees and are not subcontractors. Each of them is licensed, bonded, insured, and drug-free. What that means to you is that you can feel comfortable with who is coming into your home. In addition, our installers are more than just installers, they are qualified craftsman that have the ability to build knee walls open and close walls, create new openings, and etc to help make your design dreams a reality.
Q: Are your installers licensed, bonded and insured?
A: Yes, all of the Woodland installers are licensed, bonded, and insured.
Q: What is your installation warranty?
A: Woodland Windows & Doors guarantees that your installation has been performed to the best of our craftsmen’s abilities. All labor is guaranteed against an imperfect installation for a period of five (5) years from the date of completion. If our labor is proven to be flawed in the areas of exterior aluminum trim work, exterior caulking, interior casing, insulation, or air and water leaks, we will repair or reinstall material in the problem area at no charge to you. This guarantee does not include occurrences beyond our control including, but not limited to, hail, ice, windstorms, fire, lightning, earthquakes, or other acts of God. Also, this guarantee does not cover defects in material or product covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. This guarantee applies to installation workmanship only and is not valid unless payment has been made in full compliance with the terms outlined in your contract.
Q: Will Woodland stain, paint or varnish my new windows?
A: Woodland offers a premium stain and paint service that completes your custom window, door and architectural trim with a professional finish.
Q: What can you tell me about your staining process?
A: We are so detailed and particular about the quality you receive from us that we control our own product finishing process from beginning to end, including a Woodland owned stain and paint facility. This setup allows us to pre-stain or pre-paint your product before installation, eliminating stain accidents and odor from your home which are common problems with on-site finishing. Our crew leaders will perform minor touch ups including filling of nail holes. Should any major touch-up work be required, we will contact you to schedule a Woodland technician to come back to your home and complete the work. All of our finishes come with a one- year craftsmanship guarantee.
Q: How long can I expect it to take your installers to replace my windows?
A: Generally speaking, our installers can replace 3-4 full frame replacement openings per day and 6-10 insert replacement units per day. There may be exceptions to this, depending on the work that needs to be done.
Q: Are there any limitations regarding the number of windows you will install?
A: Woodland will install as many windows as the customer needs. No job is too large or too small.
Q: Does Woodland install windows and doors in the winter?
A: Yes, Woodland installs windows and doors year-round. This is actually our favorite time to install because our customers see and feel an instant benefit to new energy efficient windows and doors. In addition, we have specific guidelines for our installers to follow when completing winter installs to minimize the cold that comes into your home. Our installers will block off the work area(s) as much as possible, ask that you reduce the heat (to limit heat loss), and work room by room. There is very minimal time between when the old window is removed and the new window is installed in the opening. We only take out one window at a time and put the new one in right away before going on to the next one.
Q: What is done on the exterior to seal the openings?
A: Our installers will cap the exterior of the window with aluminum and back it with DOW insulated board to keep out moisture and insulate around the opening. We then caulk the entire perimeter of the opening with Quad VOC sealant. We use this product because it does not crack or pull away from substrate, is more pliable and will expand and contract at an equal rate.
Q: What sets Woodland installers apart from the other window and door contractors out there?
A: Woodland has been installing and servicing windows and doors for over 40 years and has over 20 full time carpenters, all employed by Woodland, some for over 10 years. This is important because this kind of experience means the workmanship is consistent, the quality is very high and our reputation stands the test of time. Every one of our installers is trained on a continuous basis both by fellow installers and by our manufacturers. The trucks that our installers work out of are window and door shops on wheels. Each truck is stocked with everything that is needed to do quality installations.
Q: Will Woodland pull any permit that may be required by my town or village?
A: Woodland is licensed and bonded in towns where we do business, however most towns require homeowners to obtain local building permits, where required. This should be checked with the local building department by the homeowner and is the homeowner’s is responsibility to secure any required permits. Woodland will not pull permits for jobs, however we are available to help answer questions regarding the process of applying for permits.
Q: Once my new window or door units are installed, can my existing window treatments be reinstalled?
A: Your new window and door dimensions may vary from your existing dimensions, therefore not all situations allow for reinstallation of window treatments. Woodland cannot be held responsible for window/door treatments that do not fit your new windows and doors.
Q: What can I expect the day of installation?
A: On the first day of your installation, the crew leader will walk with you throughout the home, observing the jobsite, and explaining how they are going to proceed. We will protect the hallways in your home with runner tarps and your floors with drop cloths in the work areas. On multiple day installs, we clean up the jobsite on a daily basis and take any debris with us and dispose of it. To limit debris, we generally start on the upper floors and/or farthest from the entry. Window and door replacement is considered a major construction project, therefore to protect your furnishing from dust, we suggest you use sheets or a light piece of plastic to cover them. We also ask that you kindly move furniture to allow clearance around each window and door opening as well as remove any hanging pictures and breakable items from the work area. Before we leave, the crew leader will do a complete walk-through of the work we have done and teach you how to operate your new windows and doors. If your order was prefinished by Woodland, your crew leader will perform minor touch ups including filling of nail holes. Should any major touch-up work be required, we will contact you to schedule a Woodland technician to come back to your home and complete the work.
Q: What stain and paint colors does Woodland offer?
A: Woodland offers a wide variety of Painter Select colors to ensure a close match to the most popular colors available. We use Benjamin Moore and Sherman Williams paints offered in colors that match the exterior colors of our quality products from Andersen, Marvin and Pella. We also offers 18 stain colors from Wood-Kote and 15 stain colors from Minwax. The colors that we offer are on display in our showroom, available for viewing online and our sales representatives have samples they can show you as well. (Woodland cannot guarantee an exact match in colors to stain samples due to variations in wood products or limits in the printing process. All stain colors are close in proximity to all provided samples. Also, due to the variations in the product you purchase, colors may not be an exact match.)
Q: After my windows are installed, will I have to re-paint or repair wallpaper?
A: In most situations, after a full frame window installation you will not have to re-paint or repair wallpaper in your home. Our standard practice is to either custom fit a unit into the opening, or to replace interior casing with casing that is wider than existing. We’ve found that custom sizing units allows us to use similar size casing to what is existing therefore reaching existing paint and wallpaper lines. On the flip side, if your openings allow us to use standard size units, we may have to use a wider casing to reach the paint and wallpaper lines. The wider casing will generally cover most existing paint lines and ends of wallpaper. In an insert window replacement application, the interior casing is not disturbed; therefore no re-painting or repair to wallpaper will need to be done.
Q: Does Woodland install storm doors?
A: Yes, Woodland will install storm doors that have been purchased from us on openings where an entry door is also installed. Woodland will not re-install existing storm door(s) after an entry door install. Please contact one of our sales representatives at 630-529-DOOR (3667) for further questions or clarification regarding installation of storm doors.
Q: Does Woodland install skylights?
A: Yes, Woodland will install skylights in openings where a skylight already exists. Please contact one of our sales representatives at 630-529-DOOR (3667) for further questions or clarification regarding installation of skylights.
Q: I’m planning on having the windows and doors in my home replaced, however I will have to do the work in phases. How can I be assured that the work quality will be consistent for future phases?
A. The products we offer are manufactured for long-term use. Our sales representatives will make sure that the product(s) that are ordered for your current phase matches what was sold to you and installed on previous phase(s). Our installation team is continuously trained to ensure consistency. We have a system in place, with a mindset to manage water properly on the exterior of your home or building, therefore giving your windows the performance that is required of it, and to give you an aesthetically pleasing installation.
Q: Does Woodland use expandable foam to insulate?
A: Fiberglass insulation and expandable foam are both available; however our standard practice is to use fiberglass insulation to fill the cavity around the window(s) and door(s). We will however use expandable foam per your request, or if expandable is what is required by your town or village.
Q: I currently have a security alarm system installed in my home. Does Woodland re-install security alarm systems?
A: Per the state of Illinois, only a certified alarm installer (with a PERC card) can install alarm systems and make contacts. We are not certified therefore will not re-install the security system. We recommend that homeowners contact their alarm company prior to installation and have the system put on test mode for the day we are installing your window(s) and door(s). We will drill holes and pull wires, but will NOT attach alarm contact, regardless of whether or not it is wireless or hard-wired. After the installation, homeowners need to have the alarm company come out and make contacts.
Q: Do alarm systems affect the warranty of the products you offer?
A: Sometimes yes, however it depends on the product. You will need to check with your sales representative for further clarification.
Q: After my installation, will I be left with the debris from the job?
A: No, clean up is done daily, whether your job is a single-day or multi- day installation. We take any job related debris from the site and dispose of it. Our objective is to ensure you will never have to live in a messy house during the installation process or clean up after our installers leave.
Q: Does Woodland replace interior doors and trim?
A: Yes, we have an entire room in our showroom dedicated to show various interior door and trim selections. Our sales representatives would be glad to walk you through what we have to offer.

Q: Will Woodland replace glass only in my existing windows?
A: Please contact one of our sales representatives at 630-529-DOOR (3667) for clarification regarding glass replacement.
Q: Does Woodland repair windows?
A: Woodland will repair product related defects for windows we have sold, 1-year from date of sale. Anything after the 1-year will be subject to a service call fee.
Q: I’m having my windows and doors replaced and would like to re-use my existing interior casing/trim. Is this a possibility?
A: In some situations we have the ability to re-use existing interior casing/trim. Please contact your sales representative, as it depends on the job conditions and the specifications of the new product
Q: Do you offer brick work?
A: Yes, we have a mason available to complete any brick work that may be required as part of your install. We have the ability to replace stone sills, install bay/bow custom stone sills, remove a course of brick to accommodate a larger window, install lintels on new openings, drop sills, re-tooth brick, etc. Our sales representatives can discuss brick options in more detail. Please contact our sales team at 630-529-DOOR (3667).
Q: How should I clean my door and/or windows when they get dirty?
A: It’s best to consult your owner’s manual for specific manufacturer’s instructions, however mild soap and water usually works well for exteriors.
Q: Can I apply a window tint to my products?
A: Do not add a tint to your window glass as this will void your warranty.
Q: Why are my oil-rubbed bronze handles discolored?
A: Oil-Rubbed Bronze is a living finish that will develop its own unique patina with use. This hardware is actually a dark bronze finish over copper. The intent is that the outer finish will wear, allowing the copper to show through. More use equals more wear, thus a "living finish." The changing of colors is a part of the natural aging process for this type of finish.
Q: What do you recommend to clean the glass?
A: Cleaning the glass of your new window and door unit(s) should be done when they are not exposed to direct sunlight. NEVER use of razor blades on any coated glass such as Low E II. Marvin Windows and Doors recommends the following process for glass cleaning, however it is the homeowner’s responsibility to check with their specific window and door manufacturer regarding cleaning requirements to assure the warranty is not compromised.
- Soak the glass surface with a clean water and soap solution to loosen any dirt and debris
- Use a mild, non-abrasive window washing solution and apply with a non-abrasive applicator
- Immediately after washing the glass, remove all of the cleaning solution with a squeegee, taking care not to allow any metal surface of the cleaning equipment to touch the glass surface. Use a cloth to wipe the squeegee dry after each swipe.
- Dry all cleaning solution from window gaskets, sealants and frames. Also, make sure that no abrasive particles are trapped between the glass and the cleaning material. Weatherstrip and frames become susceptible to deterioration if the water and cleaning solutions are not dried away immediately after cleaning.
Q: Does Woodland have expertise in “decorating with windows”?
A: Yes, our sales representatives have seen various window openings and can give design ideas. We are not just a “window out, window in company.” We help customers find functional solutions as well as design solutions.
Q: Will I be able to communicate with your installers?
A: Absolutely, you can have a conversation with any one of our installers. We even have bilingual craftsman (English/Spanish and English/Polish).
Q: What happens if you encounter water damage during install?
A: Water damage is a very common problem in homes. We encounter rotted sills and knee walls quite frequently. Our installers are qualified to repair minor damage and replace rotted lumber with new lumber at no additional charge to the customer. More extensive damage is billable on the basis of time and material, however work will not be performed unless it is approved by you. Please contact one of our sales representatives at 630-529-DOOR (3667) for questions or concerns regarding water damage.
Q: Do you have windows that help block sound transmission?
A: Sound transmission codes (STC) have a varying degree of sound blockage and are available from all of our manufacturers. Please contact one of our sales representatives at 630-529-DOOR (3667) with questions.

Lou Manfredini’s Guide to Window & Door Replacement
Lou Manfredini and Marvin Entry Doors help you to choose the right windows and doors for your home.
Contact Your Sales Representative for more information.
We decided to replace all our windows in our condo at the Portals in Lincoln Park this fall. This installation began on December 23, and due to the holiday was completed on December 29 as scheduled, a total of 4 working days. We replaced 7 windows and our sliding glass door with Anderson windows. First of all, I would like to say how pleased I am with the look of the windows themselves and the door. I think for our condo it has improved the overall interior appearance, and I can tell the finished product is much superior to what we had previously.
I also was pleasantly surprised with the installation process. I was expecting a messy, dusty, painful experience and instead the noise level was minimal, the dust was almost non-existent, and the mess was hardly noticeable. In fact, I will go so far as to stay this was the least intrusive and messy repair/installation of any of this magnitude that I have experienced as a homeowner. I attribute most of this to the skill and understanding of your staff to the work conditions and our belongings. I give our job supervisor, Nick, most of the credit, but the other installers were equally as careful and courteous. They made something that I was dreading more than bearable.
Thanks, Ken. An excellent job all around.
