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.

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.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

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!
