Replacing your old, leaky windows will improve your home’s appearance, comfort, energy-efficiency and protection against harsh elements. When planning this project, aside from finding a reputable contractor, you also need to set a realistic budget.
Here are things you need to consider when budgeting a home window replacement.
Material and Labor Cost
The first thing to consider is the material cost. It can include the cost of miscellaneous items like nails, tools and anything necessary to help with the trim and insulation. Then, there’s the cost of labor, which involves the actual installation of the windows. It’s not always a good idea to hire a contractor who offers the lowest bid for project costs. To make the most of your investment, make sure to hire an experienced installer.
Disposing of Old Windows
You also have to consider the cost of getting rid of your old windows. Ask your contractor if disposing of old windows and cleanup are part of their window replacement service. If not, you should make plans on how you will remove the old windows from your property.
You can get significant energy savings when you choose the right kind of windows. With energy-efficient windows, your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard, which means more savings for you.
