There are just a few things you’ll want to plan for: 1. Someone must be home to let our installers into your home. 2. Make space available in your driveway if at all possible so our driver can park close to your house. 3. Clear furniture from the area near the location where your new windows and doors will be installed. Our installers will be happy to help you upon their arrival if you’re unable to clear the area beforehand, but we cannot be held responsible for any damages. 4. Remove all window treatments from the windows including blinds, shades, curtains, etc. 5. Turn off security systems if applicable.
Measure the width between the side jambs at the top, middle and bottom. Measure all the way to the jamb and both sides and the middle and record the smallest measurement. Your objective is to buy a window that fits within that opening.
If you are deciding which new home window styles you are wanting to have installed, you may want to look at the different costs of each window style beforehand. Window replacement costs on average $280 to $750 per window installed based on the window type and additional features.
There are five key elements to look for: 1. Do you see moisture, condensation or fog between the panes of glass? If so, you probably have a seal failure. 2. Is your furniture or carpet faded from the sun's ultraviolet rays coming through the window? If so, you probably do not have Low-E glass that blocks the sun's harmful rays. 3. Do you have windows rated for your climate? Cold Canadian climates require higher ER ratings to increase energy-efficiency. 4. Do you struggle to open, close, or lock your windows? Poor operation means the window structure is weak and failing. 5. Do you see peeling or rotting wood around the window frame? If so, it’s time for a replacement.

Part of Grand Prairie home ownership is regular maintenance and protecting your family from the elements.

Our decades of combined experience have taught us exactly how to install your replacement windows in a level, snug manner that won’t deteriorate over time and won’t allow the air or water inside your home.
Knowing its time to replace your windows is easy, if you know how to look for the signs.
The obvious signs are the desire to renovate home’s appearance for a real estate sale or simply to improve your living conditions, or your energy bills are clearly higher than they should be.
The more subtle signs include struggling to open or close your windows, warped frames, chipped paint, faded colour, or an unwelcomed breeze that’s increasingly noticeable.
Repairing the seal on your window will work for a short while, but at best it’s a temporary solution. For long term results, a complete window replacement is in order.
Selecting appropriate window Edmonton is easy with the right guidance. Our experts’ free consultation will discover your personal taste and style, how much light you want coming into the room, how much visual space you want to introduce to your rooms, your level of mobility, and everything else that goes into how you dream your windows will look and function.
You may not have realized that so much thought and attention goes into those squares and rectangles and you may feel that this could be a little overwhelming. Rest assured, our window experts do this every day and have the skills needed to ensure that you have a great experience. Our 10 Star reviews are a testament to this.
You already know about the energy savings and the improvement to your home’s curb appeal that result from installing new windows and doors. While those are more than enough motivation to call NorthTech Windows and Doors and learn more about windows replacement, there are a couple of additional benefits to consider.
One main benefit is security. It’s a touchy subject to discuss, but older windows don’t offer the same level of security as replacement windows do, especially if you choose the right style and material. Thicker frames, stronger glass, and more reliable closing mechanisms all add up to peace of mind.
Another benefit is market value. If you’re planning on selling your home, naturally you’ll be thinking of hardwood floors, an updated backsplash, a fresh coat of paint, and maybe re-grouting the tiles. People often overlook their windows when it comes to home improvements. New windows let more light into your space, enhancing all the other hard work you’ve put in. They also improve the overall style of your home – both inside and out – and provide better views to the outdoors.
In short, your home will look much better and potential buyers will have a much easier time envisioning living there.
If you want to pay for your replacement windows in cash or open up a line of credit with your bank, we certainly won’t turn you away. But, we realize that the majority of Grand Prairie residents don’t have that amount of cash just laying around.
We offer financing to make things simple and manageable. We are constantly negotiating with lenders for the best rates and always make sure to offer a flexible payment plan.
Once your financing is secure, your new window journey can begin. The process is easy. We’ll visit your home to consult with you about what types of windows you need and want. From there we perform measurements, choose the right manufacturer, combination of styles, and materials, and place the order.
Once we have your windows in hand, we’ll return at a time that’s convenient for you and perform the installation.
NorthTech Windows and Doors understands that you don’t want your life to be disrupted. We take care to perform the window installation as efficiently as possible and always leave your home clean.
Everything that we mentioned applies to major renovations and new home development. We have a true passion for bringing new windows and doors to the people of Grand Prairie and would be honoured to be invited into your home for the purpose of enriching your life.
Don’t be shy, ask us all the questions you can think of and we’ll be happy to answer.
