Getting new windows seems fairly straightforward on paper, but it actually requires some careful planning. You’ll need to understand, for instance, some of the factors that can affect the overall cost of your window replacement.
- Method of Installation
How your new windows are installed can either add or take away from the project cost. Depending on your needs, your replacements are either inserted into an existing wall opening, where the frame of the old windows remain, or the entire window is removed (frame and all), and a new unit is installed in its place. The latter method is a bit costlier, but it will be less prone to air leakage or rot, and generally allows for longer-lasting windows.
- Framing Material
Windows come in many different materials, each having their own distinctive features. Vinyl, for example, is versatile and low-maintenance while fiberglass is tough and energy-efficient. If you want something more classic, wood remains a solid choice. Just note that each framing material has different price ranges.
You’ll find that advanced, double-pane windows will cost more than standard single-pane units. That’s because the former can provide better thermal performance, which allows for a more consistent and comfortable indoor environment in any season – all while keeping energy costs to a minimum. What’s more, double-pane glass windows help reduce noise transfer, allowing for a calmer, more relaxing vibe in your home.
