4 More Reasons to Replace Your Windows

At NorthShield Windows and Doors, our experience covers a lot of different aspects of window replacement projects. This is why we can give you some compelling reasons to replace your windows.

The truth is that no one really likes to think about window replacement. Just the thought of a project like that can seem expensive and unnecessary, especially if your windows seem to be fine. Window replacement work can strike you as something that should only be explored when one of the windows actually breaks. While a broken window is obviously a good example of a situation that demands windows replacement work, there are a few other aspects to the issue.


The Truth About Window Replacement



Window replacement isn’t nearly as expensive as you might think. Of course, this is going to depend greatly on the type of windows you want, how many you need, and a few other factors. However, more often than not, people are surprised at just how many options they can explore on their budget. More importantly, there are options for windows that can suit a wide range of budgets and needs.

Window replacement isn’t something that should be confined to visible cracks/breaks in the window. While we don’t want to sound alarmist, there are a lot of different situations and reasons to have your windows replaced. Some of these reasons are more along the lines of benefits. In other words, your windows might be just fine. All we want to do is explain to you why it is entirely possible to make them even better. It comes down to the notion of spending a little money now, for a chance to save a good deal of money over the long term.


Window Replacement


Window replacement isn’t just something that should happen when a storm sends a massive tree branch through one of your living room windows. Obviously, our window replacement experts at NorthShield can handle such a thing, but there are a lot of other reasons for and benefits of having your windows inspected, and perhaps replaced.


Here are 4 reasons to keep in mind



1. Enhanced energy efficiency: These days, everyone is looking for ways to make their homes more energy efficient. It offers an opportunity to reduce one’s carbon footprint, and it also presents a chance to save a whole lot of money. Windows built with single-pane glass can create drafty homes, which can drive up your energy costs during the warmer or cooler months. Replacing your windows can save you anywhere from 10-25% of average energy costs yearly.

2. Green benefits: As we mentioned above, window replacement is an excellent opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint. It may not sound like you are doing a lot, but imagine the cumulative effect of millions of people decreasing their energy usage by a certain percentage per person. These things add up. Best of all, these green-friendly measures demand virtually nothing from you. The changes you will make to your lifestyle are minimal.

3. Curb appeal: Even if you don’t plan to sell your home in the near future, curb appeal is still something that you should take seriously. Enhancing the value of your home also means enhancing the value of the neighborhood, which brings even more benefits to your home. In the event that you do decide to sell, something like recently-installed windows is definitely the sort of thing that is going to entice your potential buyers. But again, even if you don’t want to sell your home, you can’t deny the way new windows absolutely transform the way a property looks.

4. Reduce maintenance: New windows can also make your life easier. Older window types tend to require a lot more maintenance than some of the more modern examples. With window replacement, you can cut down on your maintenance demands and costs. Aluminum-clad or vinyl-clad windows are great for those who want to make household care tasks easier without sacrificing anything in terms of style or substance.


New Windows Increase Safety


There are many more reasons for window replacement that we could add to the list mentioned above. To be sure, new windows are also a great way to increase your safety. The nice thing about windows is that you don’t have to make any dramatic, unpleasant changes to your home, which many people tend to associate with beefing up their security measures. Stronger windows can make your home look beautiful and improve the safety of your home and loved ones.

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.

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!
