Let the Light Shine - Natural Light Increases Your Home’s Value

When planning the design of your home, your windows will play a significant role in the decisions you make. When considering all of your options, it's important to understand the valuable role that windows play in any space. By choosing the right windows, you can increase the amount of natural light that enters your home, and thereby also increase the value of your property!

Make your home more spacious:

When you paint a room with dark paint or cover the walls with dark wallpaper, it will make the room appear and feel smaller. The opposite is true for light colors. These rules of contrast also correspond with light and darkness. If a room has plenty of natural light, it will appear larger and more spacious. A dark room can often come across as cramped. By choosing the right window, you can make even the smallest room in your home appear bigger and more versatile.

Health benefits:

It’s no secret that the warmth of the sunlight filtering through your windows is known for being a great mood enhancer, while darkness can have the opposite effect. For families and those working from home, natural light is essential. The brain can use all the help it can get, and natural light can give you just the boost you need. According to the Lighting Research Center in Troy, New York; natural light helps provide visual and mental stimulation. Their research also supports the fact that well-lit homes are more pleasant to live in and therefore more sought-after. There are endless benefits to opening your home to the possibilities of more natural light!

Experienced Buyers:

According to a Display Villages Report by Lonergan Research, second and third-time property buyers truly value the use of natural light in a space. The better the natural lighting throughout the home, the more likely the buyers were to express an interest in that particular property.

The Lighting Research Center also noted that commercial buildings enjoyed fifteen percent in savings on electrical bills by maximizing natural light. If this is true in the commercial sector, it most certainly applies in the residential sector as well. This makes it clear why experienced property buyers and flippers consider natural lighting a priority. When buying a home, the cost of daily living and upkeep is one of the main concerns.

By choosing the right windows, you can turn even the darkest corner of your home into a quaint and creative refuge.

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.
