High-quality replacement windows are an important investment that you should seriously consider if you want to boost your home’s aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency. As with most home improvement projects, knowing the factors affecting the costs of these products is important.
Windows with intricate designs tend to cost higher. Customizable features like frame texture, grilles and hardware finish also affect the total cost, which can be significant if you are replacing several windows at once. Windows with simple designs, however, mean bigger glass to allow wider outdoor views and enhanced natural lighting.
The cost of replacement windows usually depends on the glass package. Energy-efficient windows, for instance, come with at least two glass panes to minimize heat transfer that might affect indoor comfort levels during summer and winter. Multiple glass panes also help reduce sound transmission, making sure your home remains quiet and peaceful no matter the time of day. Our replacement windows are equipped with the High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, which have special coatings to block unwanted ultraviolet (UV) and gamma rays from the sun.
The cost of replacement windows also depends on the type of frame material. Wood, vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass and composite are some of the most common window materials available on the market today, each varying in terms of lifespan, performance and aesthetics. Maintenance and upkeep are also other factors to consider. The lower the material’s maintenance requirements, the less you need to invest in cleaning products, paint and stains. Our replacement windows have frames and sashes that are made of Fibrex®, which is known for its wood-like strength, energy efficiency and damage resistance.
