Should I replace all windows or just a few?


Whether you have recently purchased a new home, or you are enjoying the comfort of a home you’ve enjoyed for years, it’s no secret that changes are required from time to time. Apart from maintaining the various interior fixtures and features, the windows will also need to be replaced at some point. The question some people have is whether they should only replace the worst of the lot or if they should replace all of their windows.
 

If you are on a considerably tight budget, and you notice that one of your windows desperately needs replacing, then it should be tended to sooner rather than later. The best thing to do, in this case, is to either match the style of the other windows on your home or a standard design that can easily be matched when you replace the other windows. Damaged or broken windows can result in further damage if not resolved swiftly. For example, a broken window allows rain to enter. Another good reason to replace just one or two troublesome windows is if the rest of your windows have been replaced recently. In this case, as your window supplier to provide you with replacement windows for the ones you need and make sure that they match the rest.
 

There are also some instances where your home will need all new windows. Such larger scale replacements are the best choice when all the windows require replacement. If the old windows still use old wood or metal frames, they should all be replaced with vinyl. Vinyl offers superior insulation and durability with the least amount of maintenance. Replacing all of your home’s windows is also beneficial if you wish to sell the property for the most attractive price possible.
 

Another important option to consider is that of retrofitted windows. Retrofitting can save you plenty of time, money, and inconvenience. When your frames are still intact but you want a more energy efficient window, you can choose to replace the windows while leaving the frames in place. In this case, it is essential that you hire a professional to produce and install the retrofitted windows. This will ensure that you enjoy perfectly fitted windows and maximum energy efficiency. If your vinyl window frame is damaged, you should consider a full window replacement. Also, if you wish to choose a different  colour frame, then you will need to change all the windows accordingly. For example, one brown window frame would stick out like a sore thumb if the rest of the frames are white.

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

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.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
