Replacing your windows is a good way to protect the value of your home. However, there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to choosing your replacement windows. If you are planning a home renovation, especially window replacement, you should be aware of the factors that determine the cost of the project.
Too many factors contribute to how much you will pay for a window. To help make it easier, residential roofing service provider Polk Contracting, Inc. has listed five factors that impact the price of a window replacement and explained them below.
- Quality of Replacement Window
The price that you pay for your replacement windows is going to depend on the quality of the windows you choose. The cost of the windows is going to depend on the type of frame, the glass, installation costs and more. The higher the quality, the more you end up paying.
- Energy Efficiency Rating
An energy-efficient window has unique materials and additional treatments such as Argon and Krypton gas for insulation, and special frames. Its feature increases the cost of windows that are costly but will save you more money in the long run through the energy efficiency they provide.
- Warranty or Certification
Typically, the price of a warranty is wrapped up in the price of the windows. If the insurance restoration contractor automatically includes the warranty, that’s when you know that the window is nearly guaranteed to be high quality. As a result, you’re not only paying for quality windows but also a strong warranty to ensure the windows remain quality.
- Installation Cost
Installation costs can vary depending on the complexity of the installation. As the installation becomes more difficult the cost to install the windows is going to increase as well.
- Type of Window
The most common types of windows are all comparable in price depending on the size. Garden, bay and bow windows require full reconstruction for their installation, which will increase the cost of installation.
