Nearly all homeowners will at some point be faced with having to replace the windows on their home. While it’s an opportunity to increase the curb appeal and energy efficiency of their homes, it can also be a costly investment. If it’s time for you to replace the windows on your home, the biggest question on your mind will likely be what the cost of this project is going to be. While the average cost of a standard-size, double-hung, double-pane vinyl window can range somewhere between $400 and $700, including installation, the actual price of replacement windows is hard to calculate because there are so many factors that go into the cost of replacement windows. To help you narrow down the cost of your project, you’ll need to answer the following questions:
What Type of Window Style Do You Want?
Because certain styles of windows can cost much more than others, deciding what style you want is very important when it comes to determining the cost of your window replacement project. For instance, a single-hung window, before labor, can range from $100 to $400, while a bay window unit can easily be between $1,000 and $4,500. Of course, a number of other factors will also go into the price such as what material the window frame is made of, and what features the window is equipped with.
How Many Windows Are You Replacing?
Do you only need to replace one window on your home, or are they all due for an update? While the overall cost will be lower when you just replace one window, you can actually save a lot of money per window, by replacing all of your windows at once. That’s because many companies will offer you a deal when you get more than one window, lowering the price per window. If only one of your windows desperately needs to be replaced, it can sometimes be a smarter choice to just have all your windows replaced, because not only will you save money in the long run, but you won’t have to worry about going through the entire process again in a few years.
Are You Hiring Professionals or Installing the Windows Yourself?
While you may think that you’ll be able to save some money by buying the windows from a big-box store and installing them yourself, that is rarely the case. That’s because installing a window is hard work and if you don’t have the proper tools or help, it will probably take you much longer to complete the project. What’s more, if you mess anything up and need to fix it, you could actually end up spending more money than you would have if you had hired a professional to complete the job.
