Tip: Choose window materials carefully 

Window sales reps love to say "Vinyl is final" because vinyl windows are considered to be long-lasting. However, they can be damaged and fade in sunlight due to their plastic nature. 

On the other hand, aluminum windows are durable, but they may not be as energy efficient as wood or vinyl

Prioritize your goals and consider your needs and budget when choosing windows.

Glass Styles for Homeowners

Average replacement cost for different window types: 

  • Bay and Bow Windows: These windows consist of several large glass panes set in an angled or curved frame. They are typically more expensive due to their size, ranging from $2,000 to $6,000. 
  •  Casement Windows: Casement windows open on a left-to-right axis using a hand crank and cost between $527 and $1,200. 
  • Garden Windows: Also known as greenhouse windows, garden windows have a box shape and a shelf for plants. They range from $1,320 to $5,300. 
  • Double-Hung Windows: Double-hung windows are a popular and affordable option that can open from the top or bottom. They typically cost between $467 and $1,333. 
  • Shaped Windows: Circle or other shaped windows are on the higher end of the cost spectrum due to the labor and materials needed for shaping. Prices range from $840 to $1,200. 
  • Single-Hung Windows: Similar to double-hung windows, single-hung windows only open from the bottom and provide more security. They are more affordable, ranging from $108 to $380. 
  • Picture Windows: Picture windows, also called fixed windows, do not open and offer stunning views. They often require custom orders due to unique sizes and shapes, costing between $225 and $793.

Value of Material Types

Window materials play a significant role in cost. Here is a breakdown of average costs for different materials: 

Aluminum

Ranging from $293 to $970, aluminum is a strong and lightweight material but not the most energy-efficient option.

Fiberglass

Fiberglass windows offer energy efficiency similar to vinyl and the sturdiness of aluminum. Prices range from $420 to $1,110.

Vinyl

Vinyl windows are affordable, durable, and low-maintenance, making them a popular choice. They typically cost between $330 and $575.

Wood

Wood windows are the most expensive material but provides a classic look. It doesn't expand or contract in heat, and individual parts can be repaired. Wood windows range from $600 to $1,288.

Other Factors Affecting Costs

Replacement costs for windows can be affected by a few factors, such as: glass type, home age, location, and whether it's new construction or a retrofit installation.

Costs can increase with additional insulation and weatherproofing features like storm windows. Double-pane windows cost more but offer better insulation.

Older homes with nonstandard window sizes and structural challenges can result in higher labor costs. Generally, windows on the ground floor are cheaper to install than windows on higher floors.

Are energy efficient windows worth it?

While they may have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional windows, they can significantly lower energy bills by reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. 

This can lead to substantial savings on heating and cooling expenses over time. Additionally, energy efficient windows can improve the comfort of a home by reducing drafts and increasing insulation. 

Are wood windows best for desert heat?

While wood is a natural insulator, it is not as effective at blocking heat as other materials such as vinyl or fiberglass.

Boise has about 47 days above 95°, it is important to have windows that are resistant to heat transfer. Vinyl windows, for example, are known for their energy efficiency and ability to keep heat out.

Additionally, wood windows may require more maintenance and can be susceptible to warping or rotting in extreme desert conditions.

What's the difference between double pane and triple pane windows?

Double pane windows consist of two glass layers separated by a gas-filled space, typically filled with argon, which acts as insulation. This design helps reduce heat transfer and improve energy efficiency.

Triple pane windows have three glass layers with two gas-filled spaces in between. This additional layer increases insulation, making triple pane windows even more energy efficient and effective at blocking noise.

Triple pane windows are generally more expensive due ot the extra layer of glass and their added weight require sturdier frames. 

Do window brands really matter?

Well-known and reputable window brands use higher quality materials and have a better track record of performance. In contrast, generic window brands may use lower quality materials, leading to problems such as poor insulation, drafts, or premature deterioration.

Choosing a reliable window brand can ensure that you are investing in windows that will provide long-term energy efficiency, durability, and overall satisfaction.

Additionally, reputable brands often offer warranties and customer support, providing peace of mind and assistance if any issues arise after the windows are installed. 

How long does it take to replace home windows?

Believe it or not, some companies use two-person crews. If you have 20 windows to replace it could take a week or more. Do you really want that?

We strive to complete most jobs in 5-7 days. Large projects can take longer but that’s because of a lack of manpower. 

Is it necessary to replace all windows in the house at once?

It is not necessary to replace all windows in the house at once. The decision to replace windows should be based on their condition and your homeowner needs.

If only a few windows are damaged, outdated, or inefficient, it might make sense to replace those specific windows rather than all of them.

But if the windows in the house are old, drafty, or causing issues with energy efficiency, it may be more cost-effective to replace all the windows at once.

Do you offer financing?

Yes, we offer a couple different options depending on your needs- learn more

PRO TIP: Be weary of a contractor who DOES NOT offer payment solutions. Large, quality construction companies are stable and more likely to be trusted by banks or other lenders– hence this is a good sign you can trust them too.
