Like any other component in your home, windows will eventually need to be replaced. When that time comes, you want to invest in windows that don’t only look appealing, but are also durable and energy-efficient. Moreover, part of planning for a window replacement project is creating a budget.
Read on to learn what goes into the cost of your new windows.
How Many Windows You Are Replacing
The number of new windows you need plays a huge role in the cost of your project. If you are getting many new windows, then your window replacement is going to cost more. The project will need more tools and materials, and the installation will also take longer to complete.
Labor makes up a significant percentage of your window replacement cost. It usually includes inspection, material configuration, material preparation, installation and repairs. Keep in mind that investing in a reliable installer for your new casement windows is more cost-effective. Obtaining multiple estimates from different contractors can help you find the right one for your project. When assessing the quotes, consider their experience and the quality of the products the companies are offering.
Glass Type and Frame Material
The glass of your windows affects its insulative properties and energy efficiency. Today’s multi-pane windows are made from at least two glass panes with gas fills in the middle. These windows are known for their temperature and sound insulation.
Another thing that will affect the cost of your project is the frame material. At Renewal by Andersen® of San Diego, we install windows with Fibrex® material frames.
