Windows are necessary in providing ventilation and natural lighting for your home. To get the best windows for your home, you must carefully consider different factors that can affect your window replacement budget. Without proper budgeting, you might end up with windows that don’t really match your needs.
In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City and Central Missouri discusses three factors that will affect your window replacement costs.
1. Material Costs
Your choice of window frame material will significantly influence the cost of your project. Different types of materials have varying prices, and the costs increase along with the quality. Frame materials, the type of glass, weatherproofing and insulation are just some of the things that will affect the cost of the windows. Be sure to research the materials that fit your preferences and budget.
2. Tearing Out Old Windows
If you’re replacing old windows, make sure to take into account the removal of the old window units. This is usually not expensive but is still something to consider when planning your budget. Depending on the state of your old windows, the removal could involve a straightforward removal of the frames and glass or full removal of the window assembly, including sections of the wall where a window was attached.
3. Labor Costs
The cost of the installation service itself is also a significant part of the budget. Hiring a reputable window contractor ensures a quality window installation that will perform well and last for years. While it’s possible to install a window on your own, the results won’t be as good when compared to an installation by industry professionals. This is especially true if you’re getting custom windows. Moreover, some window manufacturers require that qualified professionals install the windows to keep the warranties valid. This means DIY installations would automatically void any warranties that come with your new windows.
