You cannot solely prioritize money because it may lead to a compromise in quality of the windows you choose. You would not want to invest in new windows again for years, realistically decades. However, you cannot spend a small fortune if you don’t have the provisions for it. There has to be a fine balance between cost and quality. Then there are many quintessential attributes that every new window must possess. The windows must be effective with the resulting insulation. They should be safe and secured. They must be desirably functional, based on your preferences and needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

From Our Clients

How to Prepare Your Home For New Window Replacements?

You should invest substantial time and effort to find the best windows replacement company. An expert should visit your home, assess your needs and offer you a comprehensive consultation to help you choose the best type of windows for your property. Windows replacement is akin to installing new windows. It is an extensive process. It is also a considerable investment so you would want everything to pan out as expected. The windows replacement company you hire should guide you to prepare your home before the crew walks in. Here is a concise guide shedding light on the most important preparations.

• The first thing you need to do is de-clutter your home. Regardless of how well organized everything is in your house, you need to make space for the crew to work. Some properties are more difficult to de-clutter than others. The objective is to have as much floor space free for the crew to move around as possible. You should specifically focus on the space around the windows. There should be absolutely nothing in the vicinity. You must move all chairs and tables, all movable furniture including beds and any bookshelves or other fixtures you may have. If you cannot take the bed or a large couch out of the room, you can move them to a corner or the wall that has no windows. The contractors will need free access to the windows and they would need some space around to keep their tools, other hardware and the materials.

• Remove everything from the windows. The blinds, curtains or drapes must be removed. You should take down any decorations you have, even if they are small wreaths. This applies to the interior and the exterior. Nothing should be on the windows. The crew can take these down but it would simply take up more of their time. You can prepare the house in advance so the crew can get down to their main job. If you have anything on the walls in a room that you think can get damaged or suffer aesthetic deterioration, then such items should also be removed.

• You can move all your furniture, décor items and other essentials & nonessentials from every room that will have its windows replaced. If you have additional rooms or some storage space where you can keep these items, do so or rent a storage container. It is easy to get a portable container where you can safely park all your possessions. Do not just leave your furniture out in the open. You should also clear out any outdoor furniture that you have, especially if they are blocking the driveway, immediately next to the windows, along the lawn or right next to the window in your backyard.

• You don’t have to do anything with or to the windows that are going to be replaced. The contractors will take care of these. You also don’t have to work with any hardware, be it the frame or any such component of the existing windows. If you have trouble uninstalling some fixtures around the windows or on the walls, you can seek the help of the crew and they will do it for you. Removal of all such items is not just essential for their safekeeping but also to allow the crew to work without worrying about knocking down something by accident.

• Any item that cannot be removed should be properly covered up. You should anyway cover up the floors, hallways and foyer. Some windows replacement companies may tell you that they would cover up the floors and other spaces. You can leave it for them but don’t presume they will unless explicitly discussed. You should make sure the crew has access to your home and essential amenities. This includes access to the house when you may not be present. The crew must be familiar with the power outlets and other essentials so they can go about doing their job without requiring your intervention.

Be Available
You should try to be available sometimes when the crew is working. This is partly to know if your property is being treated well and partly to see how the work is progressing. If there is something amiss or if there is something concerning, then it is better to alert the crew in real time than addressing a pile of issues once the job is done. However, try not to intervene every now and then as the crew will struggle to keep up its efficiency if there are interruptions.

It is imperative for any homeowner to discuss the entire scope of the project. Windows replacement does at times include getting rid of rotten woodworks, fixing the immediate wall around the window and attending to some treatments after the windows are replaced. Everything should be lucidly planned for a desired outcome.

How to Prepare my House For Freeze?

Winter can be a magical, beautiful time of the year. This is particularly true with Winnipeg winters. At the same time, winter can also be pretty brutal on your energy expenses. Putting in a little time and money now to get the best windows possible can go a long towards bringing those energy expenses down.

Whether blistering or scorching, weather changes can take a toll on our mind, body, and wallet. Poorly insulated windows allow cold air in, letting the warm air escape. This not only makes your home uncomfortable, it also becomes expensive to maintain. Without proper insulation, all the money you spend on your home heating is wasted! The same stands true for the warmer months since Winnipeg summers can get pretty hot. While air conditioning seems like the best solution, cool air can escape through warped windows and ill-fitted doors.

Thankfully, there are several things you can do to get through the worst of the Winnipeg weather. One step involves replacing your current windows with something that is better suited to handle whatever the weather is going to throw at them.

By choosing our windows for your Winnipeg home, you’ll save money on your energy bills – not just during the winter and summer months, but year-round! Insulate and save big with NorthShield’s incredible selection of vinyl windows and doors, all proudly manufactured in Canada.

Why It’s Crucial To Choose The Right Windows?

You probably don’t think about them much—after all, you look through windows, not at them—but your windows are actually one of the most crucial elements of your home. Not only do they give you an important connection to the outdoors, but windows near the front of your house allow you to see approaching visitors and the quality of your windows can significantly impact your house’s interior temperature.

Odds are if you’re here you’ve recently come to this realization. You’re learning all about how important it is to have the right windows. You might even be learning the hard way, by the noticeable change in your quality of life as your windows have aged.

The right windows can provide excellent ventilation when necessary without letting winter cold or summer heat into your home. They provide sunlight without turning your home into a furnace. They reduce your impact on the environment and the cost of heating and cooling your home. They provide you with protection from the harsh aspects of weather while still allowing you to enjoy looking at the outdoors.

Choosing the right windows for your home can also increase its value. When you choose a bay or bow window you can significantly increase the value of your home along with your quality of life. You may not be thinking about selling now, but someday when you are you’ll be happy that you chose the highest quality windows and thought about their impact on your home.

Knowing how important it is to choose the right window replacements can make it seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. If you want to take the stress out of shopping for window replacements, call NorthShield Windows and Doors today at 204-272-3725 and let us know when we can make an appointment to talk you through all the options and give you a free estimate.

Any Tips to Find The Right Windows?

New windows can make a home quieter, cozier (more energy efficient), and certainly more attractive. As you shop for new windows, here are a few tips to help you find the perfect addition:

• How much are you replacing? Replacing windows doesn’t have to mean replacing absolutely everything. If the frames and sills you have are still in good condition, then there are products that can help you to save on time and money. However, if there is any damage to these things, then they will need to be replaced, in addition to the windows replacement window itself.

• Figuring out your ideal window type: If you really don’t know where to go on these issues, consider the style of your house, as well as the existing windows. You will also want to keep that in mind when it comes to the most common types of windows, a lot of people go with double-hungs or casement.

• Frame materials: Vinyl is a popular option for its affordability, but some do not consider it to be attractive enough. Wood is naturally the most expensive, and it will likely be coated in fiberglass, aluminum, or vinyl. These are a few of the considerations that you are going to have to weigh. We are only too happy to discuss all of your options with frame materials.

• Features: You will find a ton of options available to you. This is pretty consistent among just about any windows you might be considering, although some window types lend themselves better to adding features than others. In terms of living in Winnipeg, the winter months are always something that is keenly on our minds. Triple-pane windows are sometimes utilized to deal with the more frigid periods of the season. This is just one example of how you can use features to shape your perfect window. The only thing to remember about this is that adding features will likely add to your final costs.

At the end of the day, with so many different types, frame materials, and other considerations, someone shopping for windows replacement for the first time can find the experience slightly terrifying. It doesn’t have to be. At the end of the day, you’re going to come across a lot of features that you will likely not even need. For example, impact-resistant windows can be crucial to those who live in hurricane-prone areas, but there really isn’t much of a need for them in the suburbs of Winnipeg. However, your situation might be a little unique. If there is anything we have learned from serving the greater Winnipeg area for the past several years, it’s that customer needs can vary dramatically from one home to the next!

You are ultimately in control of everything that goes into the creation of your windows. However, if you still find yourself overwhelmed by everything, don’t be afraid to consult our windows replacement experts at NorthShield Windows and Doors. We can take you through the best options for your price range, and in terms of what you want to achieve with the final product.

Window replacement comes with a lot of the benefits we mentioned above. When it is combined with other insulation efforts, the energy savings can be impressive. Windows also represent a significant financial investment. In some situations, we are talking about a project that can cost a few thousand dollars. If you know this, then it just makes sense to want to find the right windows the first time around. Winnipeg is a fantastic place to live in. This is even more apparent when you have the right elements to define and protect your home.

What Are the Benefits Of Adding New Windows?

Windows replacement can be a wonderful opportunity to transform your home. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we can help you figure out the best windows for your home. Living in Winnipeg is wonderful, but the warm summers and icy winters can be tough on those who aren’t prepared. A significant part of being ready for those seasons, and for anything else this extraordinary region might offer, comes down to having the right parts for your home. That certainly includes windows.

At the same time, replacement windows can also add significant value and enhanced curb appeal to your home. You can also take advantage of energy savings over time. There are a lot of different reasons and benefits to windows replacement. The next step will be to find the right windows for your needs and tastes.

To that end, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you have never shopped for new windows before, relax. Finding the right windows comes down to understanding your options, and what you should keep in mind while shopping.

What Are The Best Windows To Survive Canadian Weather?

Winnipeg weather can be absolutely dazzling. However, the winters can prove to be pretty brutal, even if you’re someone who is used to cold and snow. Winters can also add quite a bit to your monthly energy costs, as you struggle to keep warm.

Thankfully, there are several things you can do to get through the worst of the Winnipeg weather. One step involves replacing your current windows with something that is better suited to handle whatever the weather is going to throw at them.

Top Windows For Winnipeg Weather
There are a number of frame types that you can consider, in addition to different types of window glazing/glass. Choosing the perfect windows for your home doesn’t have to be impossible. We’re going to take a look at some of the best windows for Winnipeg weather. If you want to make your home more efficient, here are some options that you will want to consider:

Windows with gas fills: Insulated glazing is just the beginning. There are a number of manufacturers that use inert gas for filling up the space between your panes. Argon is the most commonly utilized inert gas for windows with gas fills, but a few manufacturers prefer to use Krypton. In the end, one isn’t really better than the other. Make sure to talk to your contractor about this.

Vinyl frames: While it is true that most windows are around 80% glass, you still want to take the type of frame you’re using seriously. You want to make sure you are working with a frame that will account for the other 20% of your window’s insulation capabilities. Wood and aluminum are two possibilities, but many homeowners and contractors ultimately prefer vinyl window frames. Made from PVC with UV stabilizers, vinyl frames don’t need to be painted. They also have great resistance to moisture. The hollowed-out cavities within your vinyl frames can also be filled with insulation.

Triple pane windows: You can choose between double pane windows and triple pane windows, when it comes to the type of window you bring into your home. Triple pane windows come with a number of attractive, inherent benefits. These windows can be a little pricey, but you are talking about powerful, long-lasting windows for your home. They are also designed to optimize the overall insulation potential of your home.

Awning/casement/fixed/hopper: There are several different options for window operating types. In terms of lowering the potential for leakage with your windows, you can choose between such possibilities as awning windows, casement windows, fixed windows, and hopper windows. Awning windows are hinged along the top, and you open them outwards. Casement windows are hinged along their sides, and they offer a wonderfully low air leakage rate. Fixed panes aren’t designed to open at all, while hopper windows have hinging along the bottom. They open outwards.

There are many reasons why black windows are a great choice for your home, and they are quickly growing in popularity.

Black window frames can also be used in rooms with darker coloured walls, but you will need to take extra care to ensure that the overall effect does not look too dark.
