When it’s time to replace your windows, one of the first questions to pop into your mind is, “How much will window replacement cost?” It’s hard to know for sure until a professional gives an evaluation. But here are five factors that come into play.
One of the first choices you’ll make as you choose new windows is the material. Fiberglass, vinyl and wood are some of your choices. Each material has its own advantages – and cost. Wood may be one of the more economical options, but this depends on the type of wood you choose.
There are countless window designs and styles available. Some of your choices include double-hung, casement, awning, and bay or bow windows. Look for an option that suits your home and climate.
Besides choosing a material and style, you can even choose optional features for windows. Accessories such as grilles, artistic glass and special hardware can make your windows more distinctive. However, they can also add to cost. If keeping costs down is a priority for you, opt out of window accessories.
