Transform any room with the right windows


When the latter is true or when your windows are damaged in any way, window replacement is a good idea. New windows will ensure that your home is more energy efficient and secure. When you install new windows, it also gives homeowners the opportunity to make some wonderful visual changes in terms of the style of the window, color, and size.

 

Choosing the right windows for a particular room will involve a few important factors. The new window needs to meet the needs of the room in terms of functionality. This means that it needs to allow for enough natural light to filter in as well as proper ventilation. Privacy is another point that should be considered along with energy efficiency. The window profile you choose will largely depend on how much light the room needs and the size of the window and room. If you want to give your home or a certain room a more modern look, this is easily achieved by simply replacing old windows with new vinyl windows.

 

As previously mentioned, functionality is essential, and this means that homeowners need to choose the right shape and style. In some cases, casement windows are best, in other instances, a slider window would be a better fit. Custom made windows are also a great option when you need a window that is larger, smaller, or a different shape from the usual standard models on the market today. You will also need to choose how many panels will need to open as opposed to those that will remain stationary. The amount of ventilation needed and the size of the room will determine how many and the size of these functional windows.

 

If the room requires additional privacy, like a bathroom, you will need to consider the size as well as the placement of the window. You could install more than one window with various functions. For example, you could install a picture window at eye level for light as well as a separate window beside or above the picture window for ventilation. If you are limited for space, a casement or single hung window could also be a suitable option. By applying the right treatment to the window and using the right window covers in the bathroom, you can enjoy light and ventilation without compromising your privacy.

 

When you want to open up a room and add some extra space while adding a window, you might like the idea of a bay or bow window. Both of these types of windows add extra light, and they make a room more spacious. You can install bay or bow windows on any level of the house, and you can use this space for a reading nook, arts, and crafts area, or even a spot to practice your favorite instrument.

 

Finally, don't forget about the impact that the color of your windows can have on the room. It's important to take note of the exterior and interior design of your home before choosing a color. Standard white window frames are popular since they tend to suit just about any style and color scheme. Of course, if you prefer, you could opt for light or dark shades of brown, beige, gray, or another color your window supplier offers.

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.
