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.

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!
