Maximize In-Home Light and Style with Sliding Glass Doors


Access to outdoor light is crucial for most homeowners. Having the sun shining into your home will open up the space, creating the illusion of increased square footage. It also provides a less constricted indoor environment, and a pleasing view of your neighbourhood or yard.  Windows get the job done nicely, but to maximize your access to outdoor light, consider installing sliding glass doors.


Style

A door and window in one, sliding glass doors can be designed to suite your unique taste, or compliment the current interior design of your home. In today’s world, almost everything is customizable. Just like a regular entry door, you can choose from a wide selection of styles and materials to get the most out of your new sliding door. From vinyl, to wood, to fibreglass, and everything in between, your new door can be styled any way you like.

 

Technical Design

Sliding glass doors are extremely durable, and fit to combat harsh weather and outdoor noise. With the option of multiple panes, your house will be protected against the cold winter air, while sealing the heat inside. For extra protection and energy efficiency, using low-emissive coating on the glass panes can block harmful UV rays in the summer and frigid winds in the winter. This will save you money on your monthly energy bills, and reduce your carbon footprint!

 

Customize & Accessorize

Further customize your sliding patio doors with add-ons and decorative accessories. Screen doors are great for allowing the passage of fresh air into your home, while controlling bugs and insects. To increase privacy, consider the use of curtains, blinds, or stained glass. Serving function and fashion, these options can add a stylistic elegance to your home while maximizing privacy and light controlpatio door customization
The addition of light in any home will open up the space, and create a freer, more inviting environment for those living there. Sliding glass doors are an excellent solution to problem houses that lack light, while providing an aesthetically pleasing entryway to your yard, patio or garden.

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.

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.

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!
