When you’re planning a window replacement, there are several factors that need to be considered for your home. Among these factors are how much you’re willing to spend, the type of material you’ll use and how many you’re going to replace. You’ll need to think about whether your new windows should be standard or custom made as well as who to consult with for the installation job. As such, it’s important to hire a trusted installer whom you can trust, such as our team at Renewal by Andersen® of Northwest Ohio.
If you’re not sure just how much you’ll need to spend for your windows, we’ve shared below what you need to consider:
The cost of the frame material depends on the size and type of windows you’ll be getting, so it’s a good tip to choose one that’s a good balance between budget, style and needs. Vinyl and aluminum are commonly used frame materials for any window installation because of their affordability and minimal maintenance. Aluminum windows are stronger, more recyclable and lighter than vinyl, but they can also be more expensive. This is why a lot of homeowners go for our Fibrex® window products. A composite material, Fibrex is twice as strong as vinyl while still being more energy-efficient.
Size, Style and Shape
Large windows will usually be marketed at a higher cost because they use more materials. Aside from this, standard windows are usually cheaper than custom-shaped or unusually-shaped ones, including decorative windows and circular windows. Keep in mind that the more custom configurations you want means adding more to the overall cost.
Number of Windows
Depending on the number of new windows you’re going to install, you might be thinking about doing it in batches so you can keep costs from piling up. This will have an effect on your material expenses and labor costs, so, if you’re replacing more windows, more tools and supplies are going to be needed to replace them, which will also take more time and labor for the installer to finish the job.
