Part 2 of a 4 part series | How much do Replacement Windows Cost? | Vinyl Windows
Vinyl windows will be your most cost effective option when it comes to replacement window projects, however even these have a wide range of costs. A vinyl window typically costs anywhere from $150- $2000.00 a unit installed. I realize that is a tremendously broad range and explains why so many people get really confused when comparing their window estimates or quotes. We are instructed to go out and get at least 3 different quotes to compare but then no one tells us how to read them or explain them to us. Even as a professional in the industry, I struggle to make sense of other competitor’s quotes or even to discern what is actually included in the quote. This is one of the greatest challenges when determining how to even decide what company to use for your window replacement project. This makes it really difficult to decide which quote is the best value for you as well.
It is important to note that the style of window, installation method, features & options are all factors that will affect how much vinyl windows cost.
Vinyl windows have come a long way in recent years as far as options and features. Many vinyl windows now offer:
Provia Brand Aeris Window with True Wood Cherry Interior
Dual Pane Glass vs. Triple Pane Glass
Provia Brand offers a vinyl window line (Endure Windows) with a bronze laminate exterior and a wood grain laminate interior. When you combine this window with a full frame installation option, it has the appearance of a true wood window. Triple pane glass is an available upgrade for this window as well. The Provia Endure window was also named one of the top windows by Consumer Reports for Energy Efficiency in 2016. This option will cost you around $1000-$1500/ an opening for full frame installation with solid wood jamb extensions.
It is not just the material cost that affects the price of a replacement window project. The Installation Method used will also affect the overall cost of the project.
One of the most important things to remember in your replacement window journey is that there is a window option for everyone. Hopefully this series of blogs will provide you some direction and help you determine which product type is the best fit for you!
