How vinyl windows benefit your nursery or child's room


Whether you are expecting a baby or looking to make improvements to your child's room, it's always a good idea to consider how new windows can transform an entire room. So, before you start choosing colors and decorative features, take a moment to inspect the existing window and think about the benefits of investing in a vinyl window replacement.

 

Safety

As parents, it's absolutely natural to want to keep your little one as safe and sound. Old windows can present a risk in more ways than one. Not only are they easier to enter from the outside but they are also often located within reach of those tiny hands. Children are naturally curious and, even if your child's room is located on the ground floor, it's never a good idea for window handles to be within reach. If your current window is relatively low and poses a risk, call an expert in for professional advice on the best type of window to install instead. In many cases, it's best to remove the old window, make some structural modifications and install a new window that's higher up but greater in length so you still enjoy enough natural light. You can also ask your window supplier about locks that can be installed to keep the window from opening completely.

 

Temperature

During the summer, when it gets too hot, your little one can have a tough time sleeping, and you might find that they wake up more often than they should. In winter, the cold can wake your baby or child during the night, and it can even result in them catching a cold. Even if you do turn up the heat in the winter, your old windows will result in so much heat loss that your energy bill will be significantly higher than it should be. When you install new vinyl windows, they will help keep your child's room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

 

Light

Older windows might let in the same amount of light as new windows, but they don't necessarily offer the same amount of protection. Years ago, we didn't have the knowledge or technology of today. This means that older windows let light in along with all those harmful UV rays. New vinyl windows, on the other hand, include UV protection which means that baby can benefit from the sun without you having to worry about damaging UV light. Remember, sunlight is not only a good source of Vitamin D, but a light room also benefits parents and children emotionally and mentally. By allowing light in during the day, it's also easier to help baby adjust to the normal day and night routine.

 

For parents or parents-to-be who are planning their very special nursery, don't forget about the importance of safety, light, and maintaining a comfortable temperature in your child's room. All of these points are essential for their health and development which is all the more reason to invest in quality vinyl windows.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
