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.

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!

We had our windows and door installed by NorthShield, we are very satisfied. The sales man Jim was fantastic, he answered all our question and concerns and made sure we understand all what we were inquiring about. We are happy with the product and the price. The installation crew Anton Alex and Russ were amazing, they were polite, professional and very friendly.They explained and showed us how to operate our new windows and door and cleaned up after themselves even after we told them not to worry about the cleaning. We have recommended NorthShield to our friends and neighbours.
