Let’s face it; replacing windows is an inevitable part of life when you’re a homeowner. However, knowing the costs and the right windows to choose can often be a pain even decades after you first bought your home. Fortunately, replacing windows doesn’t actually have to be as difficult as it may have seemed in the past as long as you know how much it will actually cost if done properly and what windows are right for you. With this said, let’s take a look at the costs in replacing your home windows and which replacement windows are truly the best.
What’s the Cost to Replace Windows?
The actual cost of window replacement varies based on the company you choose, the job that must be done, and the new windows you purchase. However, according to Angie’s List, “For a complete window installation, find your own qualified contractor and window manufacturer. For a standard-size, double-hung, double-pane (energy efficient), vinyl window, expect to pay between $450 and $600, including installation. Wood windows are more expensive. The cost of a wood replacement window can range between $800 and $1,000 per installation. If the entire window and framing has to be removed (down to the studs), be prepared to add at least $50 to $100 per installation. This is referred to as “new construction” windows or “full-frame” replacement windows, and requires more work at an additional cost.”
Although these installation costs and window prices are simply averages, it is still highly important that you determine the right replacement windows for you before making any decisions. After all, the window type you choose can be the difference between a good and a bad investment in the blink of an eye.
