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.
