Tips for Saving Money on New Windows


Replacing all the windows in your home at the same time can easily cost $10,000 or more. Window companies typically charge a labor cost for the amount of time it takes to install the windows and a parts cost based on the number and type of windows that you selected. Companies should come to your home, measure the size of your old windows, find out what you need and give you an estimate based on all those features.

Don't Settle for One Quote

Many people make the mistake of thinking that they only need to get one quote or estimate and that all companies will offer the same prices or similar prices. You should always get at least three estimates, but you should never pick the company that offers the lowest price, especially if this price is significantly lower than what others charge. That company may tack on miscellaneous fees and other charges that increases your total cost. Make sure that all estimates include the cost of all parts and labor.

Choose Larger Windows

Some people assume that smaller windows are more affordable than larger windows. The truth is that larger windows often cost less to install and will cost less in the long term too. Smaller windows aren't as effective at preserving the temperature in your home and at blocking drafts because the frame is smaller and is more susceptible to damage. You should also look for one over one windows, which are windows with one pane of glass on the top and one pane of glass on the bottom.

Ask About Returns

Use any or all of these tips to save on replacement windows for your home.
