Brett Roth's Insight Into Windows, Doors and Coating.
One of the first questions many homeowners ask when considering having replacement windows
installed is “How much will it cost to replace all of my windows
?” Sadly, and to some frustration to many homeowners, the answer is, "It depends."
So many factors and options go into pricing windows
that it can be very confusing. Hopefully we can remedy some of this by looking at what things influence windows prices.
How many windows
are needing to be replaced?
This all depends on your needs. These needs can be small, maybe there is only one window
per room, or over all you may need to replace three or four windows
. Other houses may have needs for many windows
, where almost the entire wall is just glass. This is obviously the biggest factor in prices.
What are the sizes of the windows
For whatever reason, many people think that windows come in standard sizes. This is not exactly true. Windows
are unique, especially in older homes. Whoever is replacing your windows
needs to make sure and take accurate measurements of each window
. There is no such thing as a one size fits all window
! For windows to work correctly and to be energy efficient, they must be custom sized to fit properly. A replacement window
will not offer maximum energy efficiency if it is not properly installed; in order for a replacement window
to be properly installed it must be the right size.
There is a correlation between the size of a replacement window
and how much it costs; exceptionally large replacement windows are more pricier than average. Additionally, exceptionally small or unusually shaped windows
can cost more to replace.
