Replacement window prices vary depending on several factors, including style, energy efficiency, whether they are vinyl, wood or aluminum windows, single-, double- or triple-pane windows, low-E glass, and many others. Expect replacement window prices to differ according to brand name as well. If you opt for the better respected brand names, the prices will increase accordingly. Don’t forget that with more established window companies such as Andersen, Pella, Milgard, and JELD-WEN, you get numerous other options to choose from, which tend to increase the price and total window replacement cost.
Replacement Window Prices, Low to High
To estimate replacement window prices, we’ll take an average size window, 2’ x 4’, as an example.
A JELD-WEN aluminum window in this size has a starting price range of approximately $150-200. In vinyl, the starting price range is $165-200, and in wood, the window replacement cost (per window) begins at approximately $270-$415.
Milgard replacement window prices are a bit more expensive. Expect to pay an average cost of $500-800 per window. Depending on the choice of frame material and options for glass, you could pay as high as $1,000 per window, thus adding to your total window replacement cost.
Total Window Replacement Cost
If you are looking to replace ten windows at an average cost of about $400 per window, your total outlay for window replacement is $4,000 plus tax, and that’s if you are going to be doing the replacing on your own. If you pay someone to replace your windows, your window replacement cost will be significantly higher. You may be able to lower your total window replacement cost by ordering your replacement windows through Home Depot, or take advantage of special offers by the big-name window companies.
