Add Value with Windows

Windows add value to a home. More to the point, they do this on a variety of different levels. It can be helpful to keep this fact in mind. Our professionals at NorthShield Windows and Doors can take you further into how new windows can be of benefit to your home. All of this is worth remembering for the fact that a lot more people should think about window replacement.


New windows come with short-term and long-term perks. We can cover those in greater detail here, but remember that we still want to ultimately emphasize the value side of things. Windows add value on a truly impressive level.


Are New Windows Too Expensive?


new-windows The matter of cost is what stops a lot of people from getting new windows. Sure, you may argue, windows add value to a home, but what about the initial costs? Depending on what you ultimately want, new windows can prove to be a pricey addition to any Winnipeg home. While we can promise to keep the costs as low as humanly possible, it is still important to understand that no matter what, and no matter where you go for new windows, you are still talking about a considerable financial investment.


Some homeowners spend several thousand dollars on new windows. This is certainly a possibility to keep in mind, but it is important to remember that you aren’t going to necessarily need the most expensive windows and features. This is where the value of having a budget for new windows becomes clear. Make it a point to learn about your options for windows, think about what you want in features, materials, and other considerations, and combine that with a rough idea of how much you can spend. All of this research can certainly provide you with a foundation of understanding what’s available to you.


We can certainly answer any questions you may have along the way.


Getting back to our main point: Are new windows too expensive? In terms of initial costs, we are talking about a potentially expensive venture. However, when you combine the short-term benefits of new windows with the long-term benefits, it becomes easier to understand why it’s worth getting over your qualms over initial costs. This brings us right into how windows add value to your home.


How Windows Add Value to A Home


Replacing your windows can be a fantastic green-friendly move. This is one of the key ways in which windows add value to a home. Windows are more functional, aesthetically-pleasing, and environmentally-sound than ever before. If you haven’t had your windows replaced in 15, or even 20 years, you may want to take a look at some of the advances in window technology. You can begin to see the myriad of ways in which windows can benefit your efforts to leave a smaller carbon footprint.


window-replacement When your windows are more energy-efficient, you also have windows that can save you a good deal of money. The more energy efficient your windows and doors are (as well as things like attics), the better your home will be at keeping you comfortable—regardless of the season. Over time, this is something that can help you to save big on your monthly energy costs.


There is one more possibility to think about, when it comes to how windows add value to homes. Even if you aren’t thinking about selling your home right now, the overall value of your home is still something that you want to keep in mind. Over time, if you eventually decide that you want to sell your home, the fact that you had new windows installed is definitely going to be something that works to your advantage. New windows are unquestionably one of the major things people look for when they are shopping for a new home.


This is what we mean, when we tell you that windows will add value to your home on a multitude of levels. All of this doesn’t even complete the general list of benefits of new windows. This is why so many people ultimately make peace with the potential costs involved in putting new windows in. As we said before, combining the short-term benefits with the long-term benefits is a great way to understand why those initial costs are often worth it.


Other Benefits of New Windows


As we consider all of the things mentioned above, let’s not forget that there are still more perks to consider. One great benefit involves curb appeal. The exterior of your home is unquestionably important to you. One of the biggest aspects behind the appeal of a home comes down to things like windows. This is yet another way windows add value to homes. However, this is the kind of value that makes your home a joyous place to call your own.

Love our new windows and doors. We had all our windows replaced on the main floor, side door and front door, as well as the storm doors. The installation team was great. They removed the existing awning and were really great at cleaning up after the work. There were a couple of issues after the install, but the after sales service team of Alex and Walter were able to resolve it promptly. Great advice from Walter about keeping the humidity inside the house to maintain the windows, and also how to operate them properly. And thanks very much Alex and team for buying the doorbell and installing it for us, as well as fixing the bottom part of the door frames to cover holes on the flooring. Appreciate all your hard work and for going the extra mile. Will definitely recommend your company to friends, neighbors and family.

NorthShield did an excellent job with our house. They were the lowest price our of 4 companies I contacted for quotes. The windows look beautiful, and the molding is very well done. The installation was very quick, they replaced all of the windows in our house in about 4 hours. They cleaned up everything completely afterwards inside and outside, you can't even tell they were here! Very professional, very high quality installation, materials and work. I would highkly recommend them.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!
