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.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
