Replacing Windows and Doors
There are plenty of reasons to replace your windows and doors. And while improving the energy efficiency of your home is always a priority, new windows and doors also enhance the appearance of your home – which, quite frankly, makes it a nicer place to live.
The Key Signs that it’s Time to Replace Your Windows Include:
- Old, single-pane glass
- Moisture damage and rotting wood
- Noticeable air leaks
- Cracks in your sashes and sills
- Condensation or fogging between glass panes
- Excessive noise from outside
- Windows or doors do not open and close easily
- Building a New Home
You’ve chosen the perfect location. You’ve picked the ideal floor plan. Now it’s time to choose windows. What should you look for? Well, your best investment is to install high-quality windows that suit the design, color and style of your new home.
Energy-efficient windows save you money in the long term by keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter. Look for durable vinyl windows with, at minimum, double-glazing.
Vinyl is an attractive and low-maintenance option because they’re easy to clean, energy efficient and built to last, while “glazing” refers to the number of panes of glass in the window. Double or triple glazing provides excellent energy efficiency in colder climates.
The size, shape and location of your home’s windows can help you maximize sunlight and airflow, and increase privacy.
Because there’s no single solution to fit every home’s need, North Star offers a range of windows and doors. Built with the best materials, they not only enhance the look of your home, but improve its energy efficiency.
Your North Star dealer can help you select the ideal windows and doors for your new home.
Installing new windows and doors is a great way to remodel or renovate your home and fill it with more natural light, making your house cozier and homier.
New windows are also a wise investment because they will save you money on energy costs, while increasing the value of your home. On average, a home’s value increases between 5 and 10 per cent when renovations such as new windows are made. How’s that for an air-tight investment?
New windows and patio doors are a great way to improve the energy efficiency, beauty and comfort of any living space.
North Star understands how important quality window are to a home’s beauty and energy efficiency, so we use only the highest-quality durable materials that offer outstanding performance year in and year out.
Our windows feature energy-efficient vinyl, multi-chamber extrusions, or “profiles,” which are manufactured in our own advanced facility. Vinyl is a low-maintenance and extremely durable material that will help ensure a long life for your windows.

Our integrated manufacturing process utilizes the latest engineering technology and consistently exceeds industry standards.
And because we’re so confident in our windows, we back them with a
