New window installation costs

The cost to replace windows in a house depends on several factors, including whether you need replacement or new construction windows. The style of windows you require will also make a big difference.

 

New windows cost breakdown

 

Labor

You should budget for around $200* in labor costs per window, although this can rise for more complex installations such as bay windows, or older homes where additional work may be required to add insulation or remove old counterweights.

 

Materials

The cost of materials varies widely, depending on the type of opening, glass and frame you choose. Single-hung windows are usually the least expensive option at $150-$350* per window, while sliding windows can cost between $300 and $1,000*.

 

Full-frame (new construction) windows

These windows are not simply inserted into an existing opening, like replacement windows. Instead, they are fitted into new walls where there is no trim or siding in place, or where the opening has been stripped down to the studs. Costs range from $150 to $1,000* per window.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average cost to replace windows?
If you have a standard, three-bedroom home, the average cost to replace all the windows would be between $3,000 and $10,000*. But this will depend on the materials you choose – for example, vinyl is often cheaper than wood, while fiberglass can be more expensive.
Are replacement windows worth it?
Even though the cost to replace windows in your home might feel like a significant expense, it is worth doing if your existing windows are damaged, decaying, or otherwise not functioning correctly. It is suggested that you get new windows every 15 to 20 years. If you have just moved into an older home, you might want to consider new home windows sooner rather than later.
What are the best windows for home?
A few of the more well-known names for the best replacement windows are Andersen, Marvin, Loewen, JELD-WEN, and Kolbe. You will also need to decide on whether to choose vinyl windows, which are a great budget option but cannot be painted, or wooden windows which are more expensive and better for insulation but require regular maintenance such as painting and staining.
