It can be a tough but rewarding task to replace your home’s windows, just like having a residential roof replacement project. This is because you’ll need to find a reliable company to work with, but you’ll also need to see if it carries your desired window material. This can be daunting, especially for those who are tackling this project for the first time. One of the primary concerns of homeowners is the price of the project. Here are three key factors that can affect your window replacement costs.
Window Frame Material
When you’re comparing windows, you’ll most likely encounter different frame options, such as wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood and fiberglass window frames are costlier than vinyl, and it’s worth noting that wood windows require more upkeep over the years. While vinyl windows are cheaper, they are cost-effective since they require little maintenance and are considerably durable.
Your window expert will tell you that multi-paned glass windows will be more expensive than single-pane window units. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find a single-pane window in today’s market due to the presence of more energy-efficient counterparts. Remember that double- and triple-pane windows are far more efficient than single-pane windows.
Type of Window Installation
An insert window installation is when you’re only having your windows replaced. When you’re conducting a full-frame replacement, you’re removing the entire window, along with the frame, and replacing it with a new one. Since a full-frame window replacement is more comprehensive, it’s costlier than simple insert installation projects.
