Window Cost Replacement Guide from Glass Doctor

If you’re wondering how much it will cost to replace your windows, you’ll want to be armed with as much information as possible when making a decision. While there’s not a single price that applies to every homeowner, since the cost can vary depending on materials to the size of the project. However, replacing a window in a home generally costs approximately $300 to $1,500.

Glass Doctor® offers free in-home consultation for all window repair and replacement services, so you better understand the cost of your project before you get started. Our specialists will help you determine what the tailored pricing will look like for you and your home.

Factors That Impact Window Replacement Costs

Before scheduling a consultation, consider how these factors could impact the final cost of your window replacement home improvements project.

Here are a few of the main components of what makes up the cost of replacing your windows:

  • Glass options—Certain types of glass are sturdier, like tempered glass, or more energy efficient, depending on their production process. Opting for a more energy efficient glass type could cost you more in the short run, though it might benefit you long term with lower energy bill costs.
  • Consultation—An on-site visit to determine the difficulty of removing existing windows and getting new windows installed can save you time and money during the project. Glass Doctor offers a free in-home consultation for this part of the process.
  • Materials—An important part of the project cost is the materials needed to properly install and finish windows, such as interior wood trim, exterior flashing, etc. The price can vary here depending on your selection, such as if they’re energy efficient windows, and how many windows you’re replacing.
  • Style of window—The style of window you’re looking for will also affect replacement costs. At Glass Doctor, we offer a wide range of types of windows— from casement windows to bay windows and many more—so you’ll want to do your research or ask one of our specialists to make sure you’re getting exactly the right style.
  • Cost of labor—Your home’s location, the local economy/cost of living, window accessibility (first floor vs. third floor), scope of additional work (such as removing existing windows), window quality and the number of windows you need will ultimately also impact final project costs. For example, the cost of a sixth floor window in a big city will cost more to replace than a first floor window in the suburbs.

Below are some average replacement costs for common per-window options as of 2018:

  1. Basic aluminum windows: $300-$525
  2. Composite windows: $325-$700
  3. Basic vinyl windows: $350-$600
  4. Basic wood finish windows: $500-$850
  5. Fiberglass windows: $600-$900
