Factors Affecting the Cost of New Windows

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.

Factors Affecting the Cost of New Windows

Window Styles

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.

Glass Package

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.

Frame Material

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.

"Renewal by Anderson is definitely the way to go for replacement windows. A representative will come out to your house to discuss window replacements, their Fibrex windows, and cost. You do not have to do all the windows at the same time. We chose only to do 10 windows at this time. The price quoted is good for a full year. A few days later another Representative will come out to expertly measure all windows you are choosing to replace. These measurements are sent to the Renewal by Anderson Factory, where your replacement windows are made. Soon after your order has been processed an installation crew shows up with your replacement windows. Renewal by Andersen is excellent in keeping the customer informed from the start of the process to the final installation. We had a crew of 5 that took 2 days for 10 windows. They were definitely top-notch and you could immediately tell they had been installing windows for quite some time. They were definitely prepared for any situation that came up during your window replacement. One window had evidence of past termite infestation. The wood had to be replaced before the installation of our new window. I generally keep an infrared space heater in that room because of all the 5 bay windows. After our new windows were installed, WOW no heat loss. The room no longer felt cooler than the rest of the house. The windows look fantastic. The outside screens are virtually invisible. We love our new windows. You won't be disappointed!!"

"Every employee I have met in this company has been very kind and nice to speak with (even when I'm out of town and have to tell them I'm waay out of their zone for promotions lol!) Customizing the front door was fun, and I'm very happy with the end result of a brand new door frame that is sealed well and closes so quietly and smoothly! The frosted glass window panels top to bottom really let in an awesome amount of natural light. The manufacturing process went well with lots of updates along the way, and the salesperson was able to answer every question I had about financing. Can't wait to start upgrading the windows next! As a first time homebuyer I feel very secure in knowing I can call the company and they will make sure their product stays up to their quality standards. They are going to help this 105 year old house stand strong for another 100!"
