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. We offer free in-home estimates throughout Winnipeg and Toronto. We will come to you, perform measurements, offer advice, and answer any questions you may have. Contact our team at Winnipeg (204) 272-3725 / Toronto (905) 326-3444 to set up an appointment.

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.

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

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!
