Advantages of professional vinyl window installation


Over the years, we have become increasingly dependent on professional services. However, in many cases, these services come at a significant price. For some, this price is all the incentive they need to go with the DIY approach. However, when it comes to window installation, there is no substitute for that professional touch!

When browsing for new vinyl windows, you will most likely look for the best quality at the best price. While you wouldn't want to break the bank, you also don't want to buy an inferior product that will only end up letting you down. At the same time, a less than perfect installation can compromise the efficiency of even the best window.

If a window is not properly fitted, it can allow for air and even water infiltration. This means that the window will let hot air in during summer and hot air out in winter! This can have a significant effect on your energy bill. As for water infiltration, this can cause several additional problems including mildew and even rot. If water penetrates your window and manages to find its way into the wall, it may go unnoticed at first. Over time, the wall will become unstable and serious renovations will be necessary.

Another common problem that may occur involves the alignment of the window itself. If the window is not perfectly level and lined up, you will notice that it will difficult to operate. In fact, in some cases, you might not be able to close your window at all! Even if the problem does not seem significant, even the slightest alignment issue can put additional pressure on the working parts of the window, and they will experience more wear and tear than normal.

The good news is that a professional installation will help you avoid these problems! When you place your window order, ask about professional installation. The skilled and expert team will arrive with the window or windows, and they will take care of everything from removing the old window to ensuring that the new window is fitted to perfection.

The installation team will also arrive with all the tools and supplies needed to take care of the job. This means that there is no need for you to invest in expensive tools for the sake of installing a window or two.

Finally, don't forget about the important factor of time! When you hire a professional to install your vinyl windows, you can simply put your feet up while they get to work. Their experience in this domain means that they are able to complete the installation quickly. Now, a fast installation does not mean that the quality of the work will be compromised in any way. You should also be invited to inspect the window before the team leaves which means that you can see for yourself that they have done a thorough job.

A professional window installation will ensure that you get the most out of your new windows. For a wide range of high-quality vinyl windows, call NorthShield Windows and Doors today at Winnipeg(204) 272-3725 /Toronto (905) 326-3444.

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.

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.
