ENERGY STAR® windows are one of the best investments you can make for your home. They can improve your comfort and help cut down your heating and cooling costs. Aside from hiring a reliable installer, you also need to create a budget for your window replacement project.
Create a more accurate budget for your project by considering these factors.
You can either go for a full-frame and retrofit installation when getting new windows. In a full-frame installation, your contractor will completely remove the old materials. Doing so allows them to address moisture-related problems, such as rot. On the other hand, a retrofit installation involves inserting new windows into existing frames.
If you are replacing damaged windows, a full-frame installation is more ideal. High-quality, energy efficient windows will do wonders for your home’s comfort and appeal. However, if you are replacing windows for purely aesthetic reasons, a retrofit would be a great option.
How Many Windows You Are Getting
The number of windows you are replacing plays a significant role in your overall project cost. You may need to replace one or several units, depending on their condition and age.
Window Placement and Size
The location of your windows can also affect the cost of your project. For instance, bathroom windows are usually not as expansive as ones in your living room or bedroom. It means that living room windows may come at a higher cost because of their size.
Your material of choice will greatly affect the outcome of your window replacement. Some materials last longer and are more durable than others. For example, while vinyl usually costs lower than wood and aluminum, it can deliver better performance. At Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, we install windows that feature our exclusive Fibrex® material, which has the stability of wood and twice the strength of vinyl. This low-maintenance material offers superior durability, insulation, and moisture resistance.
