The prospect of getting new windows is exciting! However, there’s more to window replacement than choosing style, color, hardware and finishes. You also need to create a realistic budget to ensure the success of your project.
Keep these things in mind when planning your window replacement budget.
One factor that will play a significant role in your project’s budget is the material of your replacement windows. Material costs can also include everything necessary to install the new units, such as nails, tools, trim and insulation. You’ll have an idea of what needs to be purchased for your project by obtaining estimates.
A huge part of the cost of replacement windows is labor. This charge usually includes the crew traveling to your home, preparing for installation, removing the old windows, installing the new ones and disposing of old units. You can make the most of your investment by hiring an experienced contractor for your project.
You should ask your contractor if their service includes cleanup or disposal. If not, you can ask for recommendations on who can help you dispose of your old windows. While it usually doesn’t cost much, you should consider disposal when planning your budget.
