Windows are important to your home, but how important? New windows are a significant investment — what makes some better than others? How do you balance cost and quality? Where should you start?
Windows are important to your home not only for their beauty and the natural light they provide but, most importantly, for their ability to keep the elements out. Over time, windows can become damaged, outdated, or simply inefficient, which means they’re not doing what you need them to do. It’s likely time to replace them.
The cost of replacement windows can vary depending on the type of window, the size of the window, the materials used, and the complexity of the installation process. Let’s take a closer look at what factors can impact the cost of replacing your home’s windows.
The type of window material you choose not only impacts cost, but it also impacts energy efficiency, aesthetics, and maintenance requirements for your home. Below are some of the most popular options.
Now that we have a better understanding of the different types of replacement windows, let's take a look at other factors that impact cost.
The complexity of the installation process can also impact the cost. If the window is difficult to access or the existing frame needs to be removed, proper installation will require more work and may cost more.
The warranty is also a critical element in window cost. Is the material durable? Does the manufacturer and installer stand behind their product and service? Even though Infinity products are Built for Life®, we proudly offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty to give you peace of mind.
Replacing your windows is an investment, but one that can pay off in the long run. Not only can new windows add value to your home and enhance its appearance, but they can also improve energy efficiency, reduce noise pollution, and increase security.
When considering the cost of replacement windows, it's essential to factor in the long-term benefits and potential savings, as well as the immediate cost. By doing so you can make an informed decision about your investment and choose the right replacement windows for your home.
So how much should your new windows cost? The answer is... it depends. The best first step is to research the options above and contact a reputable independent dealer who knows your area. Local dealers know your neighborhood, style of home, and feature offers to make your project more affordable.
