    Hey guys, looking any recommendations for window installation in HRM (Middle Sackville specifically)

    Our new to us home is 26 years old and a few of the windows are in need of replacing due to condition, and four bedroom windows no longer meet code (?egress).

    We are thinking of replacing all the windows at once to increase resale value when we sell is 5ish years, and to get maximum rebate from Efficiency NS when we put our claim in from our heat pump.

    We are also looking at adding some insulation to our attic to bring it from R20 to R40-50 to increase our rebate and energy efficiency. If anyone has recommendations for this too that would be great.

    I did a search but there isn't a lot to find. Except in two posts BootsBoots recommends Windows Plus and in another one says to avoid them.

    Windows Plus did resolve all my problems but it took about two years of having them out to fix things. They stood by their work but it was shitty work.
