Guide to Replacing Your Windows
Follow this guide to determine what factors you should consider when 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-efficient option. Here are some common window types to consider:
- Vinyl-framed—lower-cost option that doesn't require painting
- Wood-framed—typically the most expensive option but also the most attractive
- Fiberglass—extremely durable and safe
- Double-hung—lower interior sash slides up and upper exterior sash slides down
- Single-hung—similar to double-hung, but only the bottom sash moves
- Casement-style—hinged on one side and opens with a crank
- Awning-style—hinged at the top and opens 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. 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.
