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.

11 new windows, 3 entry doors, 2 patio doors, phenomenal look and installation. Hydro bill dropped significantly even with the increase in rates. Team was fast and efficient. Broke one window and had it ordered and installed within a few days! Will use these guys for all my future window and door needs! A++++ experience.

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.

Jim came by to give us a quote on a window and door he was very friendly until we sat down and decided what we wanted in are window and door. He was saying that are home was not are forever home. Insulted our house how does he know this is not our forever home very rude. Then he ask us the other company that came by we told him and the quote that they gave us, and he started being argumentative saying that it cant be its too low they cant be cheaper then me. And also pushing us to get a storm door which we said we just want a door then he said if we go to home depot there doors are not good. Sorry but dont want someone that insults are home and is rude instilling are window and door.

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.

Firstly, I received a quote from Northshield in September - When I called to go forward with the windows it was early November and the price had jumped up close to $1,000. We had many quotes for windows, Northshield was not the cheapest but I went with them due to good reviews. They seem to have an issue with customer service as my windows were ready for over a month with no installation date in sight. I called and left several messages trying to get an idea of installation date before anyone called me back. The only reason I am giving more than 1 star is because the final product and installation team was good, aside from the slight crack in one of my frames and the mess left behind in my yard including many cigarette butts. In the future I will be going with a different company and would not recommend them.
