Tips to find the best window replacement professionals


Replacing your home windows is an important task and a significant investment. Whether you are replacing one or several windows, it's essential that you choose the best quality products as well as the top professionals. When searching for the perfect window replacement experts, there are a few factors that homeowners must always keep in mind.

 

Price

Price is always one of the most important points to consider. The most expensive products are not always the best. Similarly, cheap windows are not necessarily the best option either. It's important to look for quality windows that are reasonably priced. Remember that basic models will usually have a reasonable price tag and, the more advanced the technology, the higher the price. Make sure that you shop around and compare prices as well as features.

 

Reputation

Take your time to do some research before making any decisions. Find out how long the window company has been in business and how much experience they have. You will most likely find that their website boasts several great reviews, but this is not necessarily enough. Do yourself a favor and run searches for company reviews on independent review websites. Remember, even if you do come across one or two somewhat negative reviews, it's not uncommon. The most important thing is that the company should have substantially more positive than negative feedback.

 

Qualifications

Check the company's certifications and accreditations before you make any decisions. Even if they tell you that they are certified, you should ask for formal written certification. These accreditations let you know that the windows you are installing have met certain criteria and, as a result, this helps reassure you of the quality of the windows you're buying.

 

Installation

Even if you buy the very best windows in Canada, as poor installation can have devastating results. Not only can a bad installation affect energy efficiency, but it could even cause damage to the window and your home. If a window is not properly installed, it can result in excessive wear and tear which will shorten the lifespan of your windows. This means that you won't get as much use or value for money out of your purchase. For this reason, many homeowners choose to have window professionals perform the installation rather than doing so themselves. That said, take note of what other customers have to say about the company's installation and professionalism. They should perform speedy installations, but they should also make sure that every window is properly aligned and fitted.

 

Warranty

Warranties on windows are the company's way of offering customers some essential peace of mind. Before placing your window order, make sure that you understand which parts of the window are covered by the warranty. In addition, find out about the claims procedure should you experience any problems with your windows.

This the second time I used Northshield. They replaced five windows and two doors. Work was done efficiently and accurately. Would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
