Which Factors Can Affect Your Window Replacement Cost?

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. 

Window Replacement

Create a more accurate budget for your project by considering these factors. 

Installation Type

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. 

Window Material

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.

"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!!!"
