When a quote is more than just a quote


It’s okay to shop around

Replacing your windows and doors is a major undertaking and a considerable financial investment. It makes sense that most people like to find out what their options are before making a purchase. In fact, it seems like the right thing to do, given that this investment will affect your home’s appearance, safety and energy efficiency, not to mention curb appeal and resale value! With so much riding on your choice of window and door replacement, it just makes sense to get an understanding of what kind of products and prices are out there.


Make sure to compare apples to apples

You’re bound to come across a range of prices when comparing quotes for windows and doors. In fact, it will begin to seem odd that some companies can offer seemingly similar products for outrageously low prices. It goes without saying that there are plenty of companies out there looking to make a quick buck without providing quality products and services. Companies like that will often offer very low prices, but will also be hard pressed to answer questions about quality and manufacturing.

When you get an estimate from NorthShield, you’re getting more than just a rough guess. Our experts come to your home to take detailed measurements and discuss the right window and door options for your home. When all of that is taken into account, we generate a quote that includes the cost of professional installation, including removal of your old windows, framing, sealing, cleanup and more. And you’ll be surprised at how reasonable a quote it is!


Ask the right questions

When looking for a company to replace your windows and doors, make sure you’re probing into the installation process, asking the right questions and getting the right information. For example, is the company planning on doing a full frame or retrofit installation? What is the difference and why does it matter? What type of insulation will be used? How long is the warranty? Who is responsible for the cleanup after the installation is complete? Questions like these allow you to gather useful information, weed out the inappropriate candidates and demonstrate to companies that you are taking this decision seriously. At NorthShield, we will gladly answer any and all questions you may have, and provide you with the needed information to help choose the right products for your home, your style and your budget!

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!
