Residents, particularly of older homes, have likely found themselves at one time or another assessing their property for improvements and realized that it might be time to replace the windows. You may choose to replace the windows in your home not just for aesthetic purposes, but also to become more energy-efficient.The first question that springs to mind is generally motivated by cost.
So how much are new windows, exactly?
The cost of replacing windows is based on multiple factors. The size and grade of the window glass are relevant as well as the number of windows being replaced. The current condition of your window frame is also relevant to the assessment. Replacement of rotten wooden frames may require a larger budget.
Replacement of a standard window can range on average from $400 to $1,000. The lower prices would be for a standard vinyl window. A more expensive wooden window would command a higher installation price.
Replacement of all of the windows in an average-sized home can cost in the neighborhood of $8,000 – $12,000. However, you can always economically replace the windows in your home one room at a time.
How much are new windows going to impact the aesthetic of your home?In addition to potentially improving the illumination in your home, upgraded windows can reduce energy usage and save you money on your utility bills. The improvements to energy-efficiency and the added modernization to your home will not only translate to increased enjoyment of your home, but also higher property value.
