The Right Windows for Winnipeg


Windows replacement can be a wonderful opportunity to transform your home. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we can help you figure out the best windows for your home in the Winnipeg area. Living in Winnipeg is wonderful, but the warm summers and icy winters can be tough on those who aren’t prepared. A significant part of being ready for those seasons, and for anything else this extraordinary region might offer, comes down to having the right parts for your home. That certainly includes windows.

 

Benefits of New Windows

There are a lot of different reasons and benefits to windows replacement. The next step will be to find the right windows for your needs and tastes.

 

To that end, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you have never shopped for new windows before, relax. Finding the right windows comes down to understanding your options, and what you should keep in mind while shopping.

 

Tips to Find The Right Windows For Winnipeg

 

New windows can make a home quieter, cozier (more energy efficient), and certainly more attractive. As you shop for new windows, here are a few tips to help you find the perfect addition:

•   How much are you replacing? Replacing windows doesn’t have to mean replacing absolutely everything. If the frames and sills you have are still in good condition, then there are products that can help you to save on time and money. However, if there is any damage to these things, then they will need to be replaced, in addition to the windows replacement window itself.

•   Figuring out your ideal window type: If you really don’t know where to go on these issues, consider the style of your house, as well as the existing windows. You will also want to keep that in mind when it comes to the most common types of windows, a lot of people go with double-hungs or casement.

•   Frame materials: Vinyl is a popular option for its affordability, but some do not consider it to be attractive enough. Wood is naturally the most expensive, and it will likely be coated in fiberglass, aluminum, or vinyl. These are a few of the considerations that you are going to have to weigh. We are only too happy to discuss all of your options with frame materials.

•   Features: You will find a ton of options available to you. This is pretty consistent among just about any windows you might be considering, although some window types lend themselves better to adding features than others. In terms of living in Winnipeg, the winter months are always something that is keenly on our minds. Triple-pane windows are sometimes utilized to deal with the more frigid periods of the season. This is just one example of how you can use features to shape your perfect window. The only thing to remember about this is that adding features will likely add to your final costs.

It doesn’t have to be. At the end of the day, you’re going to come across a lot of features that you will likely not even need. For example, impact-resistant windows can be crucial to those who live in hurricane-prone areas, but there really isn’t much of a need for them in the suburbs of Winnipeg. However, your situation might be a little unique. If there is anything we have learned from serving the greater Winnipeg area for the past several years, it’s that customer needs can vary dramatically from one home to the next!

 

You are ultimately in control of everything that goes into the creation of your windows. However, if you still find yourself overwhelmed by everything, don’t be afraid to consult our windows replacement experts at NorthShield Windows and Doors. We can take you through the best options for your price range, and in terms of what you want to achieve with the final product.

 

Window replacement comes with a lot of the benefits we mentioned above. When it is combined with other insulation efforts, the energy savings can be impressive. Windows also represent a significant financial investment. In some situations, we are talking about a project that can cost a few thousand dollars. If you know this, then it just makes sense to want to find the right windows the first time around. Winnipeg is a fantastic place to live in. This is even more apparent when you have the right elements to define and protect your home.

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.

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

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.
