Things to Consider When Budgeting Your Window Replacement

Installing high-quality replacement windows offers many benefits for your home, including improved curb appeal, enhanced ventilation and energy efficiency, and increased property value. It might seem straightforward, but it is a considerable investment. You’ll want to make sure to create a budget for this home improvement project accordingly. Continue reading to learn the essentials you’ll need to consider.

Window Replacement

Find Out if You Can Afford the Project

Before you even think about picking the best style and frame color for your new windows, check if you have enough funds to get this project started. Take your cash flow, assets and potential return on investment (ROI) into account. Calculate your income and expenses. Take a look at your wants and needs. From there, you can determine how much you can set aside for the window replacement. Fortunately, some contractors offer financing options that fit your available resources.

Consider the Window Components

Focus on the frames and glass in particular because they impact the total cost of your home window replacement project. It can be easy to pick ones that are readily available and can immediately fit your budget, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll last a long time. Consider choosing windows with components that provide durability and energy efficiency. In doing so, you avoid costly repairs and the likelihood of a premature replacement. Plus, you can expect a good return on investment in the long term.

Factor in the Cost of Old Window Disposal

This should also be factored into your window replacement project. Most of the time, the removal of the old windows and the cleanup of the debris following the installation comes with an additional charge. It doesn’t take up a significant chunk of your budget, but it still needs to be considered when you plan to replace your windows.

"When we purchased the windows at the end of February we had been informed the lead time would be middle of August for installation. I was okay with this as they had been straight forward about the time frame. As the process moved forward I was kept informed via email at the various stages. I had received an email at the email of May stating the windows have finished being built and we can schedule installation. I was thrilled to have them be installed by the end of June. The installers showed up on time had been very courteous while performing the installation. They had scheduled 4 days for the installation and had completed it within 3 days. There was an issue with our front door as it was on back order and they brought out the wrong door by mistake, however they installed a temporary door until our door arrived and then came back out and installed the new door. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing replacement doors and or windows."

"A phenomenal removal and replacement of our front door. The installers were very detail oriented and very meticulous. This was the second time we've had doors replace with Renewal by Andersen of SW Missouri and both time our expectations were exceeded."
