Windows are beautiful additions to our home. Aside from giving us a fantastic view of our surroundings, it brings in cool air during the summer and keeps the rain and snow out during the winter. Windows come in different styles, shapes, and colors that also add to our homes’ curb appeal.
However, like any other part of your home, there may come a time when your windows need to be replaced. Maybe it’s broken or maybe you want to change your windows to match your home’s overall design. If your window frames are still in good condition, then you can save more because you’ll only have to replace the glass. However, when even the frames are broken, you’ll need to have it completely replaced with a more durable window. The cost for window replacement varies because of the style, quality, size, and the number of windows that are needed.
Factors that Affect Price
When thinking of a budget for your window remodeling project, the following are some of the factors that can affect the price:
- Frame Insulation.Higher-quality windows offer better insulation compared with windows with lower-quality frames.Buresh Home Solutions offers Sunrise Windows®made with vinyl frames, which have polyurethane foam insulation,giving us the best in energy efficiency.
- Frame Material. The most commonly used materials for residential windows are fiberglass, wood, and vinyl. Each has their advantages and disadvantages: fiberglass is durable but is more expensive; wood can make for some beautiful windows, although it tends to dry out in the winter and sometimes lets air inside a room; vinyl windows come in both high-end and low-end qualities and their respective pros and cons could vary according to price.The Pella® 350 Series Windows, for example, are stronger and more durable than typical vinyl products.
- Number of Glass Panes.A single-pane window offers the least energy efficiency, whereas double-pane windows have better performance and energy efficiency. Triple-pane windows are an improved version of double-pane windows, but these can be more expensive. More glass panes means more spaces in between those panes, and therefore better insulation, which is related to the next factor.
- Gas. In double- or triple-paned windows, the spaces between those pane scan be filled with gas—usually argon or krypton—which is denser than air. These gasses are used to slowdown the transmission of warm or cool air into a room.
- Coating. Glass with special Low-E coating is available for some of our products such as Wincore® Vinyl Windows; aside from providing UV protection, glass with Low E coating can better manage heat transfer through your windows and can also reduce energy loss.
