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.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
