The Five Best Benefits of Vinyl Windows


Vinyl windows have been getting some unfair bad press lately, but there are so many reasons that they’re great! The benefits of vinyl windows definitely outweigh the downsides and a lot of the negative outlook is just coming from misinformation.
 

Vinyl windows happen to be the new norm. A lot of people have their suspicions over the quality of the modern window-frame material and there are a fair share of myths regarding the material floating around. There’s misinformation regarding the quality or lasting benefits of the material. In actuality, vinyl windows are the best option on the market. They’re safe, they’re quality, they’re long lasting and they’re beautiful.
 

To clear the air, NorthShield has put together a list of the five best benefits of vinyl window frames: 

 

1.Custom Design

Vinyl can be moulded into any shape. There’s a lot more versatility when working with vinyl shapes. A lot of homes, especially older ones, have unique shapes and sizes – requiring fully custom shaped windows and doors. Vinyl offers this flexibility with ease. It’s also easy to custom colour and finish vinyl anyway you need, giving you the opportunity to be much more creative than the options that wood allow.

 

2.Maintenance

Unlike wood, vinyl never requires any upkeep. While wood will require occasional sanding or finishing, vinyl stays shining and true to the way it looked when you first installed it. They’re also so much easier to clean. Vinyl doesn’t require gentile products in the same way organic materials do. To wash vinyl all you need is soap and water. Water itself won’t wrap or misshape your vinyl the same way it affects woods.


3.Energy

Vinyl windows are without hesitation the most energy efficient material of window frame on the market. This material is an ideal insulator, and unlike wood or aluminum, vinyl windows ensure you’re keeping the heat inside during the winter months – saving you energy costs and feeling chilly. 


4.Environment

Opposed to what some people think, vinyl is an easy to recycle material when the time comes to replace your windows. You can rest easy knowing that you’re reducing your ecological footprint when you install vinyl windows and doors for your property. Their energy efficiency also helps to make vinyl the most environmentally friendly option for window installation. In fact, vinyl windows were first introduced during the 1970s when the United States was especially concerned with energy efficient windows and doors.

 

5.Popularity

Vinyl windows are now used for more than half of US residential window installation. This means that there are countless resources for fixing, up keeping, replacing or customizing your new vinyl windows. As the popularity of vinyl windows continue to expand, so will the options and resources available to ensure they’re looking and performing their absolute best.

 

When considering your options, make sure to take this list into account. Vinyl windows offer a lot of benefits to any property and are ultimately the easiest material to maintain.

11 new windows, 3 entry doors, 2 patio doors, phenomenal look and installation. Hydro bill dropped significantly even with the increase in rates. Team was fast and efficient. Broke one window and had it ordered and installed within a few days! Will use these guys for all my future window and door needs! A++++ experience.

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.

Jim came by to give us a quote on a window and door he was very friendly until we sat down and decided what we wanted in are window and door. He was saying that are home was not are forever home. Insulted our house how does he know this is not our forever home very rude. Then he ask us the other company that came by we told him and the quote that they gave us, and he started being argumentative saying that it cant be its too low they cant be cheaper then me. And also pushing us to get a storm door which we said we just want a door then he said if we go to home depot there doors are not good. Sorry but dont want someone that insults are home and is rude instilling are window and door.

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.

Firstly, I received a quote from Northshield in September - When I called to go forward with the windows it was early November and the price had jumped up close to $1,000. We had many quotes for windows, Northshield was not the cheapest but I went with them due to good reviews. They seem to have an issue with customer service as my windows were ready for over a month with no installation date in sight. I called and left several messages trying to get an idea of installation date before anyone called me back. The only reason I am giving more than 1 star is because the final product and installation team was good, aside from the slight crack in one of my frames and the mess left behind in my yard including many cigarette butts. In the future I will be going with a different company and would not recommend them.
