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!

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.

We chose Northshield because of the rave reviews on Google, but unfortunately the experience was a disappointment. The sales guy was nice enough, but like most suppliers in their industry, installation came 6 weeks past their original estimate, which was fine since we were not in a big rush, although we had to delay the painting of our kitchen because of it. The two big issues were: 1. To install our new patio doors, the opening had to be widened, which our sales guy mentioned, and which was fine to us. The problem came when the installers were on site and insisted that they did not need to replace the header. I know nothing about construction but luckily my colleagues told me to make sure that they install a new header because they were widening the doorway. Luckily I was home and I persisted that they install a new header, and after a while they finally realized that they needed to do it as well. They went off to the store to get the wood and the drywall and finished the job, which looked fine. 2. Only a few months later big cracks appeared along the new header. I called Northshield only to be told by Alex that my painter should've known that the patchwork on the header was very minimal and that "any professional painter should've known to make sure the drywall was ready to be painted." So they refused to do anything about it. I guess I should've said back to him "any professional installer should've known you need a new header when you widen a doorway!" So now I have a wall that I will need to re-patch and re-paint all over again. If you decide to use Northshield, please do your own research and make sure that you oversee their work, because they will never take responsibility for it, or admit that they didn't know what the heck they were doing.

Professional, clean, good customer service. Fast and efficient. No surprises or hidden costs, did not try to upsell me and worked within my budget. Very happy with the finished product and will continue to use in the future for replacing my remaining windows.

We had 4 windows installed by this company. The windows were installed in no time at all, and the guys were very professional and efficient. Love the windows and would recommend this company to anyone.
