Window Replacement Cost: Estimate the Cost to Replace Your Windows

On average, window replacement costs for a medium-sized window vary between $1,000 and $1,500. The exact amount depends on the complexity of the installation, the local labor cost, the window quality, the number of windows, window frame material, the type of window, size and shape of windows (rectangular windows are the cheapest to install), insulation requirements, energy efficiency requirements (you can choose Low-E, Argon gas, or Low-E windows), and the professional installation charges. For example, the average cost to replace a vinyl window would run to anywhere between $345 and $650 while a wood replacement window cost would be $595 to $880. Replacing 10 windows would cost you anywhere from $5,750 to 10,080.

  • Single-hung windows: Average cost: $200 - $600
    Features: In these windows, only the bottom part operates while the top part remains stationary.
  • Double-hung windows: Average cost: $250 to $800
    Features: These windows have two sashes - sliding vertically up and down in the frame. So they can open from either the top or bottom and do not protrude to the exterior or interior of the house.
  • Casement windows: Average cost: $350 to $1,500
    Features: These hinged windows operate by turning a crank. They are hinged either on the left or the right side and open outward.
  • Awning windows: Average cost: $350 to $1,500
    Features: The windows are hinged at the top. Interestingly, they can be replaced above, below, or alongside another window (stationary or operating). They also open outward.
  • Picture windows: Average cost: $180 to $1,000
    Features: These large stationary windows let in the maximum amount of light and offer unblocked views of the outdoors.
  • Transom windows: Average cost: $200 to $600
    Features: These narrow windows can be either operating or stationary. They are typically mounted above a door or window, letting in natural light.
  • Slider windows: Average cost: $250 to $1,000
    Features: These modern- or contemporary-style windows glide along a track. At least one of the two windows operates by sliding horizontally over or past the other window. Sliding windows are a perfect choice for your patio.
  • Stationary windows: Average cost: $180 to $1,000
    Features: These windows do not open - hence the name. Fortunately, they can be customized in almost any angle or shape.
  • Bay or bow windows: Average cost: $1,500 to $10,000
    Features: Such windows are best for giving you more interior space because they protrude out of the house. Generally, they are a combination of windows, such as stationary, double-hung, or casements.
  • Skylight windows: Average cost to replace: $800 to $1500
    Features: These windows are perfect if you want to allow more natural light into your house but have limited exterior wall space. They bring in a fashion similar to roof vents.
  • Egress windows: Average cost: $2,000 to $5,000
    Features: These designed-for-safety windows provide an escape route during an emergency if exiting through a door is not possible. They are typically placed in basements.
  • Garden windows: Average cost: $1,000 to $4,000
    Features: These are essentially mini bay windows - meant solely for your plants. These little greenhouses protrude from the inside of your house.
  • Hopper windows: Average cost: $180 to $500
    Features: These windows open from the top and crank open to tip down. Perfect for compact spaces, they are generally found in basements and bathrooms. They also offer excellent insulation.

Keep in mind that for your windows to function effectively over the long term, excellent quality construction is crucial. It pays to choose the most durable windows with the highest energy efficiency.

Window material Single Hung Window Double Hung Window Sliding Door Window Bay Window/Bow Window
Vinyl Window $345 $505 $605 $1,050
Fiberglass Window $455 $620 $680 $1,270
Aluminum Window $405 $580 $630 $1,155
Wood Window $635 $855 $1,005 Upward of $2,000

Professional window installation cost for a single window runs $135 to $245 - depending on the type of window and the effort involved. Window installers generally charge $175 for a simple window and $450 to 700 for a bay window with an existing window frame. Building a new window frame or repairing a damaged one may add considerably to the total cost - sometimes as much as the cost of the window.

Installing windows in an affluent area, such as New York, California, and most cities on the West or East Coast will be more expensive than say cities located in the South or the Mid-West. Big-city window installers typically charge 20% to 30% higher labor rates.

Replacing energy-saving windows guarantees one of the best ROIs you can make on your home - up to 80% of your investment costs! Windows allow natural light to flood your rooms and let in fresh air to help keep it dry. They enhance both the indoor and outdoor appeal of your home, helping you define the style of your house.

Apart from the aesthetics, replacing your old, drafty windows and doors will also make your house more energy-efficient - and impress potential buyers.

Therefore, installing new windows is worth the investment. Keep in mind that many homeowners spend more than $50,000 to replace all home windows.

Here are some benefits of high-quality replacement windows:

  • You can make energy and cost savings between $150 and 375 per year.
