How new windows and doors improve home value


As a prospective home buyer, the front of the house will always be the first to capture your attention. It is up to the seller to ensure that this impression is a positive one. Apart from a fresh coat of paint and a well-tended front yard, there are other important aspects that will steal the show. The windows and doors of your home will always prove significant features and ones worth investing in.

 

An old entry door is not only an eyesore but also of concern in terms of security and energy efficiency. If the old door looks worn, makes a dreadful noise, or does not open and close properly, the potential buyers will begin their tour of your home from a negative standpoint. This can affect their willingness to buy your home as well as the price they are prepared to pay.

 

Windows are just as important as your front door. If you have a beautiful new door and old windows, it will make the worn out aspects of your home stand out even more. Like your front door, new windows offer improved aesthetic appeal, security, and energy efficiency. With double or triple pane windows, your home can offer potential buyers the added incentive of greater energy savings. Properly insulated windows will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Buyers will be more than willing to pay more for a home that will prove efficient on a monthly basis for many years to come.

 

It’s important to consider the benefits of a bow or bay window and the way they can transform any room in your home. With just one of these windows, you can give your living room, dining room, or even bedrooms something extra to show off.

 

When replacing the windows of your home for the purpose of increasing your asking price, it’s wise to replace as many windows as necessary. For example, you should replace all of the front facing windows so that they present a uniform appearance. Similarly, don’t forget about creating a uniform design from within. So, even if some of your windows face other directions, they should be similar to the rest of the windows in that room in order to achieve consistency. It’s not just about the color of the frames but also the size, style, and grilles that need to be considered. If you are replacing your front door and windows, make sure that you choose them together and don’t forget about a suitable patio door too!

 

Always remember, when selling your home, the potential buyers will look for fault. They will tally up the cost of each repair and deduct this from your asking price. The less they can find wrong, the more the bidders will be willing to pay. In this way, such investments as new windows and doors can more than pay for themselves.

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.
