Variables That Dictate Window Replacement Costs
Replacement Window Quality
Window replacement costs can range anywhere from $300 to $2,000. This price doesn’t include the installation, so it’s important to pick windows that suit your budget and offer excellent quality. In most cases, it’s best to spend a little extra to ensure you get high-quality energy efficient windows that will last.
Replacement Window Material Selected
Most window frames are made of wood or vinyl. Both wood and vinyl make fine window frames, so as long as you select high quality windows, either frame material should be able to withstand normal wear and tear. Wood window frames look gorgeous, but they are more expensive than vinyl due to factors like tree harvesting and transportation costs.
Some window panes come with gases like krypton and argon infused in them. These gases act as insulators to keep your home at the desired temperature. Energy efficient windows keep your home insulated to reduce heating and cooling costs. If you select windows with these energy-saving properties, you can expect to pay more upfront, but you’ll save on energy costs in the future.
Window Installation Process
Your window replacement costs will vary depending on whether your windows require pocket installation or full-frame window installation. Full-frame installation is more involved and requires all parts of the window to be removed. Old, damaged windows typically require this type of replacement. If your window frames are still in good shape, a pocket installation may be right for your home. During a pocket installation, our window contractor will place your new windows inside the existing frames. Pocket installations are cheaper than full-frame installations.
Window Replacement Warranties
Window replacement warranties are included in the cost of your window replacement and protect you from having to shell out more money if something happens to your new windows. Window replacements without warranties may cost less, but you run the risk of having to pay for repairs if something goes awry.
