7 Exterior Home Trends In Winnipeg (Doors And Windows)


Home trends throughout Winnipeg are well worth paying attention to. In particular, you will find that there are some pretty exciting developments going on with doors and windows. It is important to remember just how invaluable our windows and doors really are. We aren’t just talking about their aesthetic value, although that is certainly significant.

Your doors and windows need to bring a lot to the table, including strong insulation features. In terms of doors and windows specifically, there are several compelling trends that are worth studying in greater detail. 

Winnipeg Doors And Windows Trends

Whether you are building a new home, or if you are eager to make some dramatic changes to your current property, here are some exterior home trends in Winnipeg that you can check out:

1. Fibreglass and vinyl windows: With technology making huge gains in the world of home design, it isn’t hard to understand why more and more people are turning to fibreglass and vinyl for their windows. Both fibreglass and vinyl windows offer a wide assortment of perks related to both form and function. To be sure, vinyl and fibreglass are going to give you a lot more to consider, as opposed to older options like aluminum or wood.

2. Metal/Steel doors: Have you considered the benefit of adding a metal or steel door to your home? If not, you definitely should. For both safety and security, metal/steel doors bring a lot to the home. Combining beauty and security in a truly unique way, these doors are becoming more popular with homeowners all the time. Throughout Winnipeg, it is actually getting to a point where it is difficult to tell the difference between metal doors and wooden doors!

3. Contrasting garage/front doors: You have more options than ever before. In fact, it is easier than ever to enjoy the advantages of having contrasting garage and front doors. This is one of our favorite ongoing trends.

4. Oversized front doors: Oversized front doors are becoming all the rage with homeowners. Remember that your front door is one of the first things people are going to notice, when they come to your home. To that end, you want a front door that will do more than provide ample, essential security. You also want to have a front door that will add to the considerable curb appeal of your property. Oversized front doors can help you to achieve that.

5. Energy-efficient products: More and more homeowners are eager to take advantage of measures that will allow them to save a great deal of money on their monthly energy costs. At the same time, homeowners are also eager to embrace green-friendly measures in every possible way. Professionally-installed, energy efficient windows can provide you with a wide assortment of benefits.

6. Canadian-made doors: Another trend we’ve noticed involves people who want to shop local as much as humanly possible. This is extending to all sorts of products and services, and it definitely includes homeowners purchasing Canadian-made doors. Buying local helps the local economy, and that is just the beginning.

7. Window Walls: Floor-to-ceiling windows are becoming popular with both homes and businesses. It isn’t hard to understand why that is the case. You are taking advantage of natural light, which benefits your home and energy bill on a number of different levels. You are also adding a profound element of curb appeal to the property.

Trends For Windows And Doors

All of these trends have one major element in common: All of them involve taking the value of your windows and doors seriously. The above measures will add so much to your current value and security.

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.

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.
