Your Windows and Doors Free Estimate - Demystified


Customers frequently ask us what they can expect during a free estimate. Whether you've arranged your free estimate or are simply wondering what the process will look like, here are some helpful hints that will help to demystify the process that takes place when one of our professional NorthShield craftsmen generate a free estimate.


1. Setting up the appointment

The first step towards getting a free estimate is setting up an appointment with NorthShield Windows and Doors. There are several ways to contact us to book an appointment - you can either fill out a contact form on the website, or call us at (204) 272-3725 in Winnipeg or (905) 326-3444 in Toronto. Once we've agreed upon a mutually beneficial time, one of our skilled professionals will come to your home.

 

2. Taking measurements

The importance of a NorthShield representative coming to your home is two-fold: first, it gives him an option to visually analyze the condition of your existing windows and doors in order to gain a better understanding of what the best replacement options are. Second, it allows for measurements to be taken. Our NorthShield craftsman will take detailed measurements of all the relevant aspects of your home in order to generate as accurate an estimate as possible.

 

3. Generating an estimate

The next step is the actual estimate - it takes several pieces of information to generate an accurate estimate, including the measurements of the windows and/or doors to be replaced, the type of replacement windows to be used, the condition of the existing building, and more. Your NorthShield representative will generate as accurate an estimate as possible given his observations, measurements and your input regarding the types of windows and doors products you would like to use to replace your existing windows and doors.

 

4. Answering your questions

Part of our job during a free estimate is to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an educated decision. That's why our NorthShield representatives answer any and all questions you may have about the types of products we use, what the best options are for your home, and more. We are only satisfied once we are certain that we have answered all of your questions and concerns.

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!
