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.

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!
