Finding The Right Windows in Winnipeg


Finding the right windows for your Winnipeg home can be challenging, especially if you don’t know a lot about the different types of windows currently available to you. There are many options out there, and all of these choices can be a little too much when taken as a whole.

It doesn’t have to be stressful in the least. When it comes to finding the right type of windows for your Winnipeg home, we are here to help. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, our experience covers a wide range of window types, glass types, and other elements that will define your home. Good windows can bring a lot of benefits to the table. Some of those benefits are almost certainly going to surprise you. The more you learn about the benefits of window replacement, the more excited you are likely to become.

Beyond those benefits, there are also a few important things to keep in mind. We can take you through those considerations, and leave you with more confidence than you had before.

 

Do I Really Need to Have My Windows Replaced?

 

This is one of the most common questions encountered by our window experts at NorthShield Windows and Doors. If your windows look fine to the naked eye, the temptation is to just assume the best. On the other hand, your windows could be too old to remain truly effective. It is also possible for windows to experience damage/disrepair in ways that you cannot immediately identify. The best course of action in a situation like this comes down to calling in windows Winnipeg professionals for an inspection.

 

Here are a few things to ask yourself, if you are still on the fence

 

Is your home particularly drafty? If you find yourself grumbling through a home that feels intensely drafty, which can feel particularly murderous during the brutal Winnipeg winters, then it is likely that your windows are not as well-insulated as they could be. Having your windows replaced can be a great way to enhance the insulation of your home. There are a lot of appealing benefits to doing so.

Are your energy bills climbing from one year to the next? Have you noticed a surge in your energy bills over the past 2, 3, or even 5 years? If your energy costs are climbing, there are a number of different culprits that you may want to consider. Old windows are often at the top of the list. Replacing your windows now is a great way to save anywhere from 10-25% on your yearly energy costs.

Do you like the idea of enhancing your home’s security? New windows can give you a powerful means of protection against more than just the weather. Winnipeg windows replacement work can also protect you against intruders and other problematic elements.

Do you want to improve the curb appeal of your home? Another major benefit to new windows in Winnipeg is the chance to change the aesthetics of your property for the better. For many homes, windows play a huge role in determining how that home appears to people from the outside looking in.

 

Things to Keep in Mind with Window Winnipeg Replacement

 

Now, an important thing to remember is that windows Winnipeg replacement work can vary wildly from one client to the next. Depending on the type of windows you want, in addition to how many windows you need, your costs can be entirely different from that of your neighbor. Our experts at NorthShield Windows and Doors can take you through all of the particulars that you will need to keep in mind.

In the first place, you need to think about how much you are willing to spend. Setting your budget now is a good way to keep your focus. You also want to think about things like energy efficiency and aesthetics. What do you want to achieve with those things? Working with window pros can show you the different options that are available to you, based on how much you want to save on energy costs, and how you want your home to look from both the interior and exterior.

Our Winnipeg windows experts can help you find the best windows replacement option that will save you money and look beautiful for years to come.

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.

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.

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

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!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.
