The cost of Window Replacement Depends on These Factors

  • Window size
  • The number of windows benign replaced
  • Installation cost
  • Material cost

Different Styles of Windows and Costs

Window prices vary based on the size and style of the window. Here is a cost breakdown to help you understand the costs involved in choosing a new window. 

Single Hung: This is the most popular style of window. It opens vertically from the bottom with an upper sash that remains stationary. These windows are best for smaller and single-level homes, particularly on lower levels. Prices range between $230 and $460.

Double-Hung Windows: Double-hung windows allow you more freedom to move air around your home. They can be opened from the top and bottom, making them a great choice for the main and upper floors. Prices for double-hung windows range from $395 to $1000. 

Sliding Windows: Sliding windows can open on one or both sides by moving the window horizontally. They are great for main floors and spaces that are easy to access. They are not an ideal choice for spaces high up, as cleaning the exterior of these windows may require you to lean out of the window. Prices for these windows range from $430 to $1,500 depending on the materials. 

Casement Windows: Casement windows are popular with homeowners who want to improve ventilation. They are hinged, allowing them to swing out using a crank. They can be locked for extra security. These windows are a great affordable choice, ranging from $360 to $980.

Average Price According to Material 

Material choice for windows should be done with care. You want to ensure that the windows you choose will be both stylish and functional. Windows are designed to protect you and your home, and each material composition will provide a different level of protection and comfort.

Vinyl: Vinyl is the most budget-friendly and durable option for windows. Extra insulation can be added to ensure the highest level of energy efficiency. Vinyl windows cost between $130 and $1,170. 

Composite: Composite windows are made from PVC polymers and wood fibers. They are easy to maintain and are made of materials that are stronger than vinyl and wood windows. Composite is also a popular choice with homeowners as they give the look of wood but at a much lower cost. Composite windows run between $390 to $1,600.

Aluminum: Another great affordable window and door replacement option is aluminum. Homeowners appreciate the easy installation and minimal maintenance. It can not be painted and does not offer the same level of insulation, so these windows are best suited for sheds, garages, and other low-traffic areas of your home. 

Wood: You can add significant value to your home with wood-framed windows. Douglas fir and pine are the most popular trims, however, there are many other great choices including mahogany, oak, and cedar. This type of wood trim is perfect for older homes. Wood windows cost an average of $195 to $1,700. 

Fiberglass: The most durable option for homeowners, fiberglass has strong insulation and is a longer-lasting material. The cost for fiberglass is between $650 to $2,000.
