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.

"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."
