How Much Does it Cost To Replace Windows?
Windows don’t need to be upgraded or replaced often, but when they do, one of the primary questions that people ask is, “how much does it cost to replace windows?” There’s no simple answer to this question because the cost can vary greatly depending on the window features to be installed, how many need to be replaced, and the warranty.
The estimation of replacing windows varies according to the type, size, quantity, and installation requirements. Other factors can also influence the price, such as the design of the frame, insulation, and any extras, such as coatings or vents. Replacing a window can cost as little as a couple of hundred dollars for a builder grade window. However, larger modern windows with newer technologies, such as low-E coatings, and more expensive materials, can drive the price into the thousands.
Upgrading your windows can also increase their energy efficiency; although, how much impact this has on your heating costs varies, depending on how many windows are replaced, and the insulation in your exterior walls.
What Can Affect The Cost of Your Windows
If you’re planning a renovation project and are trying to stay within your budget, there are several things to take into account:
- The style of the windows
- What the frames are made with
- Whether the frames are a custom color
- The location of your windows
- The complexity of the installation
- Extra features, such as double/triple pane, coatings, or gas fillings
- Installation fees
- The warranty
