One simple and effective way to improve your home’s look and feel is to invest in window replacement. But like most home upgrades, this project will cost you a fair bit. To set your expectations clearly, and accurately determine the overall cost of your window replacement, you’ll need to take into account the factors that can affect it. One of the most trusted window and roofing contractors in the area, Kroll Construction discusses some of them here.
- Window Customization. Choosing the style, color, hardware finish and grille pattern of your new windows is half the fun in a window replacement. But you should know that some customization features may increase the overall project cost. For instance, specialty windows (with its myriad of shapes and combinations) usually cost more than standard window styles such as double-hung and casement. The same goes for bay and bow windows, which come with a unique design and make changes on the exterior wall of your home.
- Frame and Glass. Framing material and glass technology matters when it comes to picking replacement windows for your home. Options that use insulated frames and low-emissivity (Low-E) glass generally cost more–but their superior insulating properties and energy-saving performance more than makes up for it. Premier window and roofing company, Kroll Construction offers top-tier vinyl replacement windows from Alside®. They come with fusion-welded frames for greater durability, multi-chamber design for effective insulation, and optional ClimaTech glass for increased thermal comfort and efficiency.
- Method of Installation. You may have to decide between an insert installation and full-frame replacement. The former is exactly that–only the window unit is replaced and the frame is left intact. The latter, on the other hand, means the entire window, frame and all, are removed and replaced with a new one. If you have to choose, go for a full-frame window replacement. It’s costlier, but it allows for windows that are stronger and have tighter seals.
