Window replacement in time for summer


Replacing your windows during the weeks leading up to summer will help you prepare for hot weather. Worn or old windows not only let in the cold during winter, but they also allow the hot air in during the summer. If you have air conditioning, you will notice that your electric bill will be fairly higher than it could be with new, energy-efficient windows. Energy-efficient windows have multiple chambers in the frame and at least two panes of glass to help maintain a comfortable temperature in your home or office. In addition, new windows will also make your home more aesthetically pleasing and increase the value of the property.

 

It's always important to inspect your home at least twice a year. Your roof, gutters, windows, and doors are examples of essential areas that need to be checked thoroughly. Extreme cold and hot weather conditions can take its toll on your home. The longer you wait to remedy the problem, the worse it can get. If you notice any kind of water infiltration around your windows, you should also ask experts to inspect the area around the window for possible damage that might need to be repaired during the window replacement process. Make sure that you find out whether your window crew will be able to solve the problem or if you will need to call a separate contractor for structural damage. Remember, even if you only notice a small area of damp or mold, a far larger area could be affected. It's best to remove the affected section of the wall since it can result in serious stability issues.

 

Replacing your windows during the warmer weather is certainly easier since you will not need to worry about snow, rain, or strong winds. When you order quality vinyl windows for your home or office, it's good to ask about professional installation. Professionals have the proper tools and experience to get the job done right without any unnecessary delays. Windows need to be installed properly in order to ensure that they open and close properly. Proper installation also prevents unnecessary excessive wear and tear on the working parts. When a window is not correctly aligned, it can make it tough to close which means that excessive force is required to operate the window.

 

At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we offer a wide range of high-quality vinyl windows to suit any home. Whether you prefer a classic casement window, a stylish bay window, or you need a custom window made to order; our team will provide you with the very best products and service.

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.
