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!

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.

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.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!
