How Much Do Replacement Windows Cost?

Replacement windows are a big investment in your residence. Not only do they provide modern style, they could increase your house’s resale value and savings on heating and cooling costs.

While there are many home improvement jobs you can complete by yourself, window replacement projects aren’t one of them. We recommend partnerting with a pro, such as Pella of Decatur.

Once you’ve chosen your window pro, you might be trying to figure out how much you could expect to spend on updated home windows. We break down the general prices by category below.

Average Costs for Replacement Windows

The average expense to install a window can vary from $300 to $1,000, according to Home Advisor’s cost guide, which gathers totals on projects across the country. The average fluctuates broadly as size, materials and style impact the total expense.

If you have a single-story residence with three bedrooms, Home Advisor says you should be prepared to budget $3,000 to $10,000 to install new windows. Costs for a two-story house can be double, as you have more windows, and many placed in areas that are harder to reach.

There are a couple aspects that can impact your actual cost, including:

  • Window size
  • Window frame material
  • Window kind
  • Product line
  • Glass solutions
  • Customization
  • Labor

Average Costs by Materials

Here are the average expenses for three of the most popular materials, according to Home Advisor. Bear in mind that custom or major projects could change the total.

  1. Vinyl windows: $100—$900
  2. Wood windows: $150—$1,300
  3. Fiberglass windows: $500—$1,500

Average Cost by Style
