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.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
