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.

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.

We chose Northshield because of the rave reviews on Google, but unfortunately the experience was a disappointment. The sales guy was nice enough, but like most suppliers in their industry, installation came 6 weeks past their original estimate, which was fine since we were not in a big rush, although we had to delay the painting of our kitchen because of it. The two big issues were: 1. To install our new patio doors, the opening had to be widened, which our sales guy mentioned, and which was fine to us. The problem came when the installers were on site and insisted that they did not need to replace the header. I know nothing about construction but luckily my colleagues told me to make sure that they install a new header because they were widening the doorway. Luckily I was home and I persisted that they install a new header, and after a while they finally realized that they needed to do it as well. They went off to the store to get the wood and the drywall and finished the job, which looked fine. 2. Only a few months later big cracks appeared along the new header. I called Northshield only to be told by Alex that my painter should've known that the patchwork on the header was very minimal and that "any professional painter should've known to make sure the drywall was ready to be painted." So they refused to do anything about it. I guess I should've said back to him "any professional installer should've known you need a new header when you widen a doorway!" So now I have a wall that I will need to re-patch and re-paint all over again. If you decide to use Northshield, please do your own research and make sure that you oversee their work, because they will never take responsibility for it, or admit that they didn't know what the heck they were doing.

Professional, clean, good customer service. Fast and efficient. No surprises or hidden costs, did not try to upsell me and worked within my budget. Very happy with the finished product and will continue to use in the future for replacing my remaining windows.

We had 4 windows installed by this company. The windows were installed in no time at all, and the guys were very professional and efficient. Love the windows and would recommend this company to anyone.
