Replacement Window Costs: A Simple Breakdown

One of the primary factors a homeowner considers when replacing their old windows is the cost of the entire project. However, there are numerous factors that affect the price, and some of them carry more weight than others. In this post, the window and doors expert, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta shares a simple breakdown of the factors that affect your window replacement project.


The majority of the replacement cost comes from the labor fees. This includes the inspection, material configuration, preparation, installation and repairs if there is a need for it. Keep in mind that having a quality window is only half of the story because you need to hire a skilled installer to ensure that your window will perform to its full potential. After all, if you choose to opt for a cheap window with a subpar contractor, it can backfire since it can fail prematurely. Remember that a window is a long-term investment you shouldn’t skimp on.

Frame Material

It goes without saying that the materials used on your windows will drastically affect the price of the replacement project. There are two popular windows on the market, namely vinyl and aluminum. Aluminum is the more expensive option between the two but is known for its energy efficiency and durability. Vinyl is a cheaper alternative but is known for its ease of maintenance. But if you want the best of both worlds without breaking the bank, you can opt to choose our Fibrex® windows that are engineered with thermopolymer composites that provide excellent energy efficiency and durability with none of their downsides.


To ensure that your home remains energy efficient, we’ll install high-quality glazing options to ensure that your home remains comfortable while saving on your monthly utility expenses. While it can be costlier compared to other options, the amount of savings you’ll get in the long run will make up for it.
