Do My Windows Need Replacement?

There are a number of factors that will determine whether or not your windows need to be replaced. If a window is broken, then it quite obviously needs to be replaced. If the window is leaking or if condensation is forming inside the window, then these are also good reasons for replacing your windows. If you have single pane windows, you should definitely look into a more energy efficient option.

If some of your windows are relatively new and in perfect working order, then there may be no reason to replace them. Replace the windows that are showing signs of wear and tear or those that are old or of inferior quality. If all of your windows are old, for example, then they might all need to be replaced.

Here are 4 reasons to keep in mind
1. Enhanced energy efficiency: These days, everyone is looking for ways to make their homes more energy efficient. It offers an opportunity to reduce one’s carbon footprint, and it also presents a chance to save a whole lot of money. Windows built with single-pane glass can create drafty homes, which can drive up your energy costs during the warmer or cooler months. Replacing your windows can save you anywhere from 10-25% of average energy costs yearly.

2. Green benefits: As we mentioned above, window replacement is an excellent opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint. It may not sound like you are doing a lot, but imagine the cumulative effect of millions of people decreasing their energy usage by a certain percentage per person. These things add up. Best of all, these green-friendly measures demand virtually nothing from you. The changes you will make to your lifestyle are minimal.

3. Curb appeal: Even if you don’t plan to sell your home in the near future, curb appeal is still something that you should take seriously. Enhancing the value of your home also means enhancing the value of the neighborhood, which brings even more benefits to your home. In the event that you do decide to sell, something like recently-installed windows is definitely the sort of thing that is going to entice your potential buyers. But again, even if you don’t want to sell your home, you can’t deny the way new windows absolutely transform the way a property looks.

4. Reduce maintenance: New windows can also make your life easier. Older window types tend to require a lot more maintenance than some of the more modern examples. With window replacement, you can cut down on your maintenance demands and costs. Aluminum-clad or vinyl-clad windows are great for those who want to make household care tasks easier without sacrificing anything in terms of style or substance.

New Windows Increase Safety
There are many more reasons for window replacement that we could add to the list mentioned above. To be sure, new windows are also a great way to increase your safety. The nice thing about windows is that you don’t have to make any dramatic, unpleasant changes to your home, which many people tend to associate with beefing up their security measures. Stronger windows can make your home look beautiful and improve the safety of your home and loved ones.

Is Vinyl For Me?

Windows are available with metal, wood, and vinyl frames. Metal has become incredibly unpopular due to the fact that they are poor insulators. Wood is popular for its appearance and great insulation. Vinyl also offers superior energy efficiency and, although some might think that it only comes in white, they are available in several colors. You can even order varieties that resemble wood which means that you get the energy efficiency of vinyl with the aesthetic appeal of wood!

Should I Get Professional Installation?

In order for your windows to perform well for years to come, you will need to make sure that they are perfectly installed. Window installation requires some experience, know-how, and the right tools. You could perform the job yourself, but the best results are achieved by the pros. Not to mention the fact that professionals get the job done that much faster.

When Should I Get My Windows Replaced?

Windows can be replaced whenever the need arises. Of course, the best time to do so is when the weather is at its best. Window installations in the rain or during a snow storm are not ideal for obvious reasons. In fact, it’s usually best to cover the window with a durable sheet of plastic until the weather is more suitable. The last thing you want is for rain or snow to fill your room when replacing a window! If you are planning the replacement of one or more windows, it’s a good idea to do so during the warmer months. Late spring, summer, and early fall are usually best.

Do I Need UV Protection?

UV protection is a great feature for any window. When you block the UV rays from entering your home, you can relax beside the window without worrying about UV exposure. It’s also good news for your furniture since UV rays are known to damage and discolor all forms of materials.

Are New Windows Too Expensive?

The matter of cost is what stops a lot of people from getting new windows. Sure, you may argue, windows add value to a home, but what about the initial costs? Depending on what you ultimately want, new windows can prove to be a pricey addition to any Winnipeg home. While we can promise to keep the costs as low as humanly possible, it is still important to understand that no matter what, and no matter where you go for new windows, you are still talking about a considerable financial investment.

Some homeowners spend several thousand dollars on new windows. This is certainly a possibility to keep in mind, but it is important to remember that you aren’t going to necessarily need the most expensive windows and features. This is where the value of having a budget for new windows becomes clear. Make it a point to learn about your options for windows, think about what you want in features, materials, and other considerations, and combine that with a rough idea of how much you can spend. All of this research can certainly provide you with a foundation of understanding what’s available to you.

We can certainly answer any questions you may have along the way.

Getting back to our main point: Are new windows too expensive? In terms of initial costs, we are talking about a potentially expensive venture. However, when you combine the short-term benefits of new windows with the long-term benefits, it becomes easier to understand why it’s worth getting over your qualms over initial costs. This brings us right into how windows add value to your home.

How Windows Add Value to A Home in Toronto?

Replacing your windows can be a fantastic green-friendly move. This is one of the key ways in which windows add value to a home. Windows are more functional, aesthetically-pleasing, and environmentally-sound than ever before. If you haven’t had your windows replaced in 15, or even 20 years, you may want to take a look at some of the advances in window technology. You can begin to see the myriad of ways in which windows can benefit your efforts to leave a smaller carbon footprint.

When your windows are more energy-efficient, you also have windows that can save you a good deal of money. The more energy efficient your windows and doors are (as well as things like attics), the better your home will be at keeping you comfortable—regardless of the season. Over time, this is something that can help you to save big on your monthly energy costs.

There is one more possibility to think about, when it comes to how windows add value to homes. Even if you aren’t thinking about selling your home right now, the overall value of your home is still something that you want to keep in mind. Over time, if you eventually decide that you want to sell your home, the fact that you had new windows installed is definitely going to be something that works to your advantage. New windows are unquestionably one of the major things people look for when they are shopping for a new home.

This is what we mean, when we tell you that windows will add value to your home on a multitude of levels. All of this doesn’t even complete the general list of benefits of new windows. This is why so many people ultimately make peace with the potential costs involved in putting new windows in. As we said before, combining the short-term benefits with the long-term benefits is a great way to understand why those initial costs are often worth it.

“Superlative from beginning to end. Alex is knowledgeable and honest in his assessment of the project and his advice on how to address the buyer’s needs. On time. Quality product. The most efficient and hard working installation crew I’ve seen in action. Good attention to details and despite unforeseeable issues in a 100+ year-old house, addressed problems to ensure the installation was done properly at a very fair price. Alex came by towards the end of the day to make sure everything was taken care of properly. He did a full walk-through detailing the differences and operation of each window type and ensuring that they worked as promised. A good close out to a hot, hard day. All in all, we could hardly be happier.”
Robert

“I had to replace all south facing windows this year as it's all rotted. Alex did a great job at explaining everything clearly and thoroughly to me, he treats customers as friends and families, he also followed up the entire project from the beginning to the end as if it's his own house, making sure everything work perfectly and meet my expectations. Not only that, Dennis did a great installation job, he's professional and humble, straight to the work, got the job done in quick order, he doesn't waste any of your time, but also willing to take requests from a picky customer like me for tiny little spots touch ups.

“Having Northshield replace my parents windows definitely made the search easier , as my mother couldn’t stop raving how happy she was . I had them come in and giving me an estimate and explain on what will be done and how my windows will look after the job is done.

Eugene
“Great products, great service and great price. AlI the windows on the second floor were replaced and I'm very happy with the result and the way the windows looks and works. This is my third time that I'm working with this company and it's highly recommended.”
Alex
“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.”
