To ensure your full window replacement will be a good investment for your home, certain factors need to be considered. For instance, with so many different types of windows to choose from, some are more expensive than others. You can always consult trusted residential and commercial roofing contractors such as Larry Walty Roofing, who offer great financing options for your replacement project.
Other factors that affect the cost of your window replacement include:
Number of Windows
This should also be considered when planning a window replacement for your home. Knowing how many you need to replace will help you determine how much you’re going to spend on replacing them. Just keep in mind that it’s cheaper to replace most or all of your windows than just a few. This is because it costs more for the number of times your contractor pays a visit to your home when replacing a few at a time compared to having them all replaced at once.
Type of Installation
When you discuss your replacement plans with your window and commercial roof repair contractor, they’ll ask what type of installation you want for your home. Depending on your needs and budget, there are two types to choose from:
- Retrofit Installation – In this type of installation, new windows will get inserted into your existing frames. The jambs won’t be replaced and aluminum capping will be used on the exteriors to cover the existing brickmould. This is usually just a cosmetic fix for your windows, so it isn’t as beneficial as a full-frame installation.
- Full-Frame Installation – This type of installation will completely remove your old windows along with the frames and studs surrounding them. This is more thorough since the contractor can fix rotten wood, drafts, or any kind of damage they may find. You’ll have a brand-new window with new interior trim, exterior brick molds, and jambs.
