Factors that Affect Window Replacement Costs

Do you need to have your windows replaced? If you answered yes, then expect to spend a few thousand dollars on it. Despite knowing this, you might still get caught off-guard by extra expenses, forcing you to go over budget. As one of the leading experts on windows in the area, we’re here to warn you about factors that can affect your window project’s overall cost.

Changes to the Project

Do you have your heart set on a specific type of window option, only to realize that you’re better off with something else? Changes during window projects can cost you a lot of cash, which is why we strongly recommend finalizing everything during the planning phase. The more detailed you are with your plans, the less likely you will have to spend extra for adjustments.

Current House Issues

Is your window replacement difficult or compromised due to a damaged section of the wall or another related issue? If that’s the case, then you’ll need to focus your resources on having that problem fixed before you continue. Window experts say that it’s always a good idea to check the home for existing problems before repairing or replacing the windows to avoid this situation.

Material Transport and Availability

Some windows tend to be more expensive because the materials are sourced far from your location or are simply difficult to obtain due to limited stock. Because of this, we recommend working with local window contractors who have access to more available (and cheaper) materials. This also speeds up the repair or replacement because it takes less time to get the materials to your area.

“Hidden” Fees

If you want to get more accurate estimates and avoid unexpected expenses, you’re better off working with reputable local contractors. Specialists say that reputable contractors tend to be more accurate in their estimates so you don’t have to worry about unexpected fees that show up at the last moment, even with non-standard projects like installing specialty windows.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
