As you consider whether or not now is the right time to replace your windows, or compare companies to work with, you will have many things to consider. Most homeowners are on a limited budget and need to ensure that they are getting a good value for their windows. This is why one of the first questions we are often asked is, “How much will it cost to replace my windows?”
If there was a simple answer to that question we would give it to you but the truth is that it depends on many factors. When you work with Progressive Insulation & Windows, we come to you for a free assessment in your home. We can measure, show you your options, and get more details on the scope of the project. At that point, we can give you an accurate estimate. Call us now at (800) 500-6200 to get that process started and, in the meantime, check out five of the factors that will most affect the cost of your replacement project.
- The Window Material
- The Type of Window You Choose
- The Window Finish
- The Difficulty of Installation
- The Size of the Project
We offer many options, including wood and vinyl. The material you choose will be one of the biggest factors in the end cost. Remember that the cheapest window may cost less but may not be as durable. As a result, we recommend our clients look at the long-term cost of various materials, not just the cost at installation.
There are many window styles, form double hung to bay windows, from bow windows to sliders, from venting to casement windows. The type of windows you need will affect the price. For one, the larger the window is the more you can expect to pay. Second, if you need custom windows you can expect to pay more than you would for a standard window.
The window finish, which is the color or stain you will have on it, will affect the price less than other factors but it will affect it. Most finishes are similar in price unless you want a custom color that exactly matches your home. This can cost extra.
If your home was built in 2000 it is likely going to be cheaper to replace the windows than it would be to replace the windows in a home built in 1910. The location of the windows, the location of your home, and the layout of your home can also affect how difficult window installation is.
Finally, we will consider the scope of the project. If a homeowner only wants to replace two windows, obviously their cost is going to be less than the homeowner who wants to replace a dozen windows and several sliding glass doors. Note that as the scope of the project grows, the cost per window is likely to come down.
