Planning a budget is crucial for every home improvement project. Various factors come into play when it comes to the cost of your double-hung or casement window replacement.
Labor includes inspection, material configuration, material preparation and possible repairs. This makes up a huge chunk of the total replacement cost. Don’t settle on low-cost services because the price may be cut because of poor quality materials and workmanship.
Number of Windows
The number of windows that need replaced will affect the material and labor cost. More windows mean more tools and supplies as well as longer installation time. You can consider having your window replacement done in batches to prevent piling up of expenses.
Windows with more unique designs or decorative ones tend to cost more than standard styles. This goes the same for larger windows since they use more materials. Generally, large specialty windows installation may have higher costs than a double-hung window due to its unusual configurations.
Type of Glass
Glass options vary by contractor and have different prices. You can get more energy efficiency from multi-paned windows. Keep in mind the International Residential Code (IRC) requirements for windows in your area when choosing a window glass.
The cost of your project is significantly affected by the installation method your window replacement requires. Your contractor would recommend either a full-frame replacement or a window insert depending on the condition of your existing windows and how old your house is.
