Choosing a Company to Replace Your House's Windows

So you're ready to replace the windows on your home? There are a few things you should consider—what type of windows to buy, how much the project is going to cost and how to find the best window replacement companies.

A Guide to Replacing Your Windows

What Type of Window is Right for Me?

The type of window you choose will depend on the look and functionality you want. For example, you might choose wood-framed windows for a more natural look, or vinyl windows for a more energy effect option. Here are some common window types to consider:

  • Vinyl-framed—lower-cost option that are usually white and do not require painting. 
  • Wood-framed—typically the most expensive option but also the most attractive. 
  • Fiberglass—new to the market and extremely durable.
  • Double-hung—lower inside sash slides up and upper outside sash slides down.
  • Single-hung—similar to double-hung, but only the bottom sash moves. 
  • Casement-style—hinged on one side and open using a crank.
  • Awning-style—hinged at the top and open outward.
  • Hopper-style—hinged at the bottom and can open both inward and outward.
  • Fixed windows—typically used for decorative purposes. 

Window Replacement Cost

One of the biggest reasons homeowners choose to replace their windows is energy efficiency. According to Angie's List, owners of an average-sized home can expect to spend upwards of $10,000 for a brand new set of windows and regain about 60% of that cost.

Choosing a House Window Replacement Company

Choosing the right window replacement company is just as important as choosing the right windows. Even high-quality windows won't look and perform their best if they are not installed properly. Look for a company that staffs glass experts, like Glass Doctor®.
