Kitchen Windows Replacement

Kitchen Windows Replacement


There are a plethora of reasons why vinyl windows are better to use around your home than other types of windows. Not only are they a budget-friendly option, they are quite durable and energy-efficient. This is particularly important in a room like the kitchen because it can be a high-traffic area. This means you are going to make use of the space. Kitchens are known to generate quite a bit of moisture, as well as hold onto scents more firmly. This is for obvious reasons, such as cooking and making use of the space every day. However, the consequences still hold true. By letting moisture build up, you make the space and your home vulnerable to problems: paint peeling off walls, mold, spores, and much more. Installing the right type of windows helps a great deal with this. These windows need to cover three basic components. First, they need to be placed in an easily accessible area within the kitchen. You don’t want to lean over anything hazardous or have the window too far away from the cooking area. The next thing to consider is the size of the window. Not only will smaller windows not let in enough light, they also won’t provide the necessary ventilation. Lastly, the windows need to open and close on a whim. Cooking can lead to excess smoke, which needs to be aired out. While a range hood can help, opening a window gets the job done quicker.

At NorthShield Windows and Doors, our inventory is filled with a wide selection of high-quality vinyl windows. As a reputable and top-rated Canadian company, we urge you to go through our variety of options. Our team of fully trained professionals will be there every step of the way, from selection to installation.

Factors to consider

Picking out the appropriate windows to install in your kitchen is imperative. As mentioned above, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration when choosing the window type. Failing to account for those factors may result in consequences for your kitchen space, as well as your home.

    • Energy Efficiency
      • Known for their energy-efficiency, vinyl windows excel in offering superior thermal protection. By selecting this window material, you increase the room’s insulation, which in turn reduces your home’s overall energy consumption. The hot or cold air does not escape the room, and the weather beyond the walls of your home doesn’t seep in. This basically means you will be able to save on your utility bills!
        • The Energy Star Seal: The blue sticker guarantees the window you purchase won’t be leaking air. It also ensures that the window has insulation properties that bring your energy costs down by up to 10%.
        • Low-E Coating: The metallic layer applied to the glass of your window allows the sun’s energy into your bathroom without preventing heat loss. This is what helps the home temperature stay regulated despite what is happening beyond the walls.
    • Sizes
      • The appropriate size of a window depends on where the window is installed and its importance in the particular room. However, it is worth noting that certain rooms have window size requirements that need to be met. Here are the standard sizes one can expect per window type:
Window Sizes Based on Window Types
Window Type Maximum Width (inches) Maximum height (inches)
Single Slider (Double Pane) 78 54
Single Slider (Triple Pane) 78 54
Double Slider (Double Pane) 78 54
Double Slider (Triple Pane) 72 48
Single Hung (Double Pane) 49 80
Single Hung (Triple Pane) 45 78
Double Hung (Double Pane) 49 78
Double Hung (Triple Pane) 48 68
Casement (Double Pane) 38 78
Casement (Triple Pane) 36 78
Awning (Double Pane) 48 60
Awning (Triple Pane) 50 50
    • Building Code
      • Every country has its own rules when it comes to window installation. As such, you need to be mindful of the building codes wherever you live. Especially when you are adding or replacing windows in any room of your home. If you are not, you may be fined – in addition to other consequences. So make sure you’re up to date with all sets of rules and regulations of window installation where you live. If you aren’t, you can always hire an experienced window installer that can give you an accurate estimate. Another benefit of this is that the installer will also be able to recommend options that are within the guidelines of where you live.
    • Price
      • Window prices vary on several factors. As such, it wouldn’t be easy to calculate the cost of a window installation in the kitchen. You would need to do a bit of research in order to determine the standard prices within your location. This can be done online or by reaching out to location window installation or replacement experts in your area. More often than not, the amount falls between $450 to $1500 depending on the type of window you want and the room in which you want the window installed.

    • Warranty
      • An important aspect to keep in mind while browsing for window installments or replacements is that you should always opt for a company that’s both bonded and insured. While they may advertise themselves or their products are durable and long-lasting – it’s always better to be safe in the long-run. Also, decide against purchasing a window from a company that does not provide a warranty on the product or service. A good installer will offer warranties on both the window installation as well as colour and other configurations. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, our installers are bonded as well as insured, and we provide our clients with reliable warranties. Our warranty period on windows varies depending on the different components, such as:
Frame Hardware Glass​ Mini Blinds Installation Colour
Windows 25 years  25 years 25 years None 15 years 10 years
Entry Doors 10 years 5 years 10 years 5 years 10 years 10 years
Sliding Doors 25 years 5 years 10 years 5 years 15 years 10 years
Storm Doors 25 years 1 year 1 year None 1 year 1 year



Best Windows for the Kitchen

  • The best windows are those that operate efficiently within the room in which they are installed. The first thing to consider is the material of the window. Since we are opting for vinyl windows, these windows provide energy-efficiency right off the bat. However, are vinyl windows operable in the kitchen? Absolutely – it just depends on the window type you select and wish to incorporate. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we carry an extension collection of window types. Here are some of our favourites for the kitchen:
    • Awning Windows
      • Awning windows are first on our list of suggestions for one main reason: they are the ideal pick for any weather conditions. Since they have a hinge at the top side of the frame, and the bottom of the sash opens away from the frame. This means that awning windows are the optimal ventilation providers, being that they can remain open during rainy or stormy days.
    • Double Slider Windows
      • Another one on our list is the double slider tilt windows. Known for their efficient air flow, these windows allow for perfect ventilation when you are cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Not only do these window types open inwards up to 90 degrees, they also come with standard drainage channels that ensures no amount of water ends up accumulating, sitting idly by, or even freezing during the colder seasons. This is key if you reside in Canada. In fact, you can add low-E coating or ETI foam to improve the window’s efficiency and effectiveness.
    • Single Hung Windows
      • The last one on our list are single-hung windows. This window type is small enough to fit tighter areas, but still provides the aesthetic appeal and functionality necessary for a space like the kitchen.
