Types Of Windows
When it comes to upgrading your windows, you have many choices. The size and style of the window you choose should not only reflect the style of the home but also reflect the personality of the people that live inside the home. Bay windows are great for families who enjoy a comfortable place to read, while skylights can add function and beauty to a kitchen or living space. The type of window you choose will impact the final cost of replacement.
Double Hung Windows
A double hung window is designed to open from the top or the bottom. These are popular options for windows in hard to reach places or that are not opened and closed on a regular basis. These are usually on the more economical side for windows and can range in price anywhere between $280 and $360 per window.
Tilt Out Windows
Tilt out windows function just as their name implies. They tilt out towards the exterior of the home. This is a popular option for windows that are hard to access from the outside (second story windows, for example) and tilt open to let fresh air through or for an easy clean. These specialty windows come in a variety of styles and range anywhere between $250 and $500 per window.
Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows are known for their energy efficiency. These windows feature an airtight space around the perimeter of the window that is filled with inert gas. This acts as a barrier between the outside elements and the inside of the home, preventing air from escaping and heat from coming in. You can expect significant savings in your utility bills after double pane window replacement, and the windows themselves typically cost $115-$250
Types Of Glass
The glass that you choose for your windows can also impact the final cost. Tinted glass works to prevent UV rays from entering your home and raising the temperature, and the film used to tint the windows makes them easier to clean than non-tinted windows. Tinted glass typically runs about $5-$8 per square foot. Other common glass types for windows include:
- Float glass
- Obscured glass
- Tempered glass
- Wired glass
The type of glass you choose plays a big role in the overall function and appearance of your windows and will impact the total price of the window replacement.
Number Of Windows
If you are brainstorming ways to keep window replacement costs down, adding more windows to the project may not be the first thing you think of. However, replacing multiple windows at a time can cut down on the price per window, since the contractors will be able to maximize time and labor costs.
Of course, the total price for multiple windows will be higher than a single window, but the price per window is typically significantly lower. Consider updating all of the windows in one area of the home to drastically improve the look of your home and save money at the same time.
