Why you should invest in a window replacement:
A window replacement can be one of the more expensive home upgrades, but it will come with a great return on investment. If you have older, inefficient windows, you are likely losing a lot of energy through them and paying more for heating and cooling your home than you should be. In fact, windows are the biggest culprit for energy loss in a home. Upgrading to new energy efficient windows will help keep more of that heat in during the winter and the cooler air in during the summer.
Beyond energy efficiency, replacement windows will also improve your home’s resale value. Not only will they boost curb appeal and make your home more attractive to potential buyers, they will also add to the appraisal value of your home. This is because new windows are one of first things buyers look for when considering a home for sale. It’s an expensive job to do and they would like to avoid having to do it if possible.
What factors should you consider when buying new windows?
Like any home improvement, windows have several factors that will affect the price. This includes the type, sizes and number of windows you need for your home renovation. Learn more about window types here. For example, a large custom bay window will cost a lot more than a simple sliding window. Working with a professional window company like Gienow Renovations in Calgary will help you choose windows types that best suit your needs for function, style and your budget.
You will also pay more for high quality windows that have multiple efficiency features. Always look for the ENERGY STAR label when buying windows and make sure that window is certified for our specific climate zone. Even if a window is ENERGY STAR certified, they still can vary in price. For example, a triple-pane window will cost more than a double-pane, though both might be ENERGY STAR certified.
Gienow Renovations can give you an accurate quote on different window types and the cost of installation. You might choose to replace a few windows this year and the rest next year to spread out the cost. They will show you the cost of product and installation if you decide to do it all at once or divide it up over the next few years.
How much will a window replacement cost?
As mentioned, you will have to get a quote from Gienow Renovations for the most accurate estimate on your window replacement renovation. To give a ballpark idea: a standard 5 by 7 window, according to HGTV, can cost about $1,000 installed, but that is a low-end estimate. New, energy efficient windows with triple glazing will cost more than that. Plus, the price will go up or down depending on the window size, type and frame material. The average home has 10 to 15 windows, which means your renovation might cost between $15,000 to $20,000 dollars for a standard window replacement.
