What to Consider When Creating a Window Replacement Budget

Whether you’re installing simple double-hungs or grand picture windows, a house window replacement remains an upgrade that can cost a significant amount of money. With that in mind, it’s in your best interest to create a proper and realistic budget for this home improvement task. By doing this, you can prevent overspending in the process.

What to Consider When Creating a Window Replacement Budget

Need help to budget your project? Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis shares some important things to consider to develop a reasonable budget for your upgrade.

  • Material Cost – Getting new windows means you have to essentially pay for new products and materials. The list for material costs seems to be never-ending — from miscellaneous items such as nails or screws to additional tools you need for insulation, finishing and trim. Upon discovering which materials you want to use for the window replacement service, you will have a better idea of your overall expenses.

  • Labor Cost – Of course, you also have to take into account the cost of labor. It often depends on how easily or quickly a contractor can install your new windows. For example, setting up floor-to-ceiling picture windows may cost more than large casement windows. A wide, non-opening window that stretches from one corner to the other requires more effort to install. Nonetheless, it’s still ideal to keep the labor costs as practical and reasonable as possible without sacrificing efficiency.

  • Energy Savings – Savings are a vital part of the budget, as well. If you choose to purchase well-designed and energy-efficient windows, you can enjoy plenty of energy savings in the long run. Buying a window unit with low-E glass and Fibrex® frames can help you minimize your cooling costs in the future.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
