Window Nation is getting ready to call the Windy City home, with the opening of its latest showroom at 1263 Lakeview Drive in Romeoville, Illinois, adding new jobs to the market.
Window Nation, which is the fifth largest replacement contractor in the U.S. with deep Midwest roots, also brings expert home solutions to the area, including servicing homeowners between Illinois and Indiana. This marks its largest service area in company history. Although Window Nation is new to this particular market, it is not new to the industry, with 2021 marking its 15th year in business and installing over 1 million windows.
Window Nation selected the Chicago region based on several factors, including the city’s growing housing market. Research shows Chicago-area residents continue to invest in their homes; as such, home values throughout the city have increased by 5.6 percent over the last year and are projected to rise 8.1 percent in 2021, according to Zillow. Additionally, Chicago’s diverse demographics and psychographics align with those in other cities where Window Nation continues to cultivate successful customer bases.
“We’ve been visiting Chicago for as long as I can remember and have the best memories of our time there, from the culture, people, architecture and of course, sports history,” said Aaron Magden, president of Window Nation who co-founded the company with his brother Harley. “It’s now coming full circle as we grow our business here and help a whole new generation of customers create the home of their dreams. We feel overwhelmingly grateful for our loyal customers and employees who continue to support us after all of these years, especially amid a year full of such tremendous challenges, loss and fear. That has not and will never be lost on us.”
The Chicago showroom will sell replacement windows to fit every style, as well as budget, and will have experts on hand to walk customers through the home renovation process, including vinyl options, colors, sizes, styles and more. Customers are encouraged to schedule an appointment prior to visiting the showroom. Window Nation is following strict CDC guidelines including social distancing, enhanced cleaning practices, protective equipment and screenings for every appointment.
Beyond providing exceptional home expertise and customer service, the company plans to have an active presence in the local community to support and foster relationships with new customers, especially throughout these unprecedented times.
