Having New Windows Installed? 3 Things To Consider

by Lucas Cox

New windows can have a major impact on your home. They can increase your home's curb appeal, make it more secure, and also lower your energy bills if you choose energy-efficient windows. New window installation also has a healthy return on investment. Your return on investment will vary depending on the windows you are replacing and the area you live in, but most homeowners see returns of at least 70 percent when replacing windows. If you are considering having new windows put in place, here are three things to keep in mind.

Your Options

Your choice of new windows will have a big impact on your home's appearance. It's important to choose windows that work well with your home and that suit your budget. There are a variety of options to choose from when it comes to replacement windows. Different window styles include double-hung windows, single-hung windows, sliding windows, casement windows, and more. You also have different materials to choose from when it comes to window frames. Some materials that are often used include vinyl, wood, aluminum, and clad-wood windows. It's important to look into your options carefully before making a decision.

The Cost

The cost of new window installation will vary depending on the type of windows you choose, the size of your home's windows, the location of your windows, and how many windows you have in your home. Window frame material will also have a big impact on total costs. On average you can expect to pay between $300 and $1,000 per window. Installation costs will range between $100 and $300 per window. It's important to take a close look at your budget and get a quote from your contractor before starting the process of window replacement.

How Long It Takes

Another thing to consider when it comes to window installation is how long you can expect it to take. Typically window installation takes around three days to be completed. During the installation process, you may need to move furniture and other items temporarily as the new windows are being put in. It's important to consider the disruption that new window installation may cause. You may also want to avoid having the installation done during times of the year when inclement weather is common.

If you are having new windows put in place, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, there are a variety of window styles and materials to choose from. Costs will vary depending on the type of windows you choose for your home. Knowing how long a replacement will take is also important. In most cases, your windows will be finished within three days.
