How Much Does It Cost to Replace Windows?

Like most things in our homes, windows don’t last forever. The average window has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Vinyl windows can last more than 20 years. 

If it’s time to take action and get those windows replaced, you may be wondering, “How much does it goes to replace windows?”

Here’s an estimated calculation: The average home in the United States has eight windows. Costs vary considerably based on add-ons and window types but our team estimates that replacing eight windows in a home could range from $3,000 to $8,000. Andersen 200 Series Double Hung

Benefits of window replacement

The benefits of getting new windows outweigh the cost. You’ll get a significant return on your investment. Here are nine reasons why:

    1.New windows will help lower energy bills. Poor performing windows contribute to heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.  

    2.In addition to helping save on your energy bills, replacing and upgrading windows can have a direct impact on your home’s value. Window replacement is not as aesthetically noticeable as a room remodeling project, but the impact on your home’s equity is certain. According to 2018 date from Remodeling Magazine, the national average return-on-investment (ROI) for wood replacement is 69.5%. That’s higher on average than popular midrange projects, such as a major kitchen remodel (59%), bathroom addition (59.9%) or a backyard patio (47.6%). 

    3.Window replace can lessen your impact on the environment. Many window brands have energy-efficient, ENERGY STAR certified options. 

    4.New windows help start making your home into a smart home. Many replacement windows are available with the option of open-close and locked-unlocked sensors, so you can add windows and patio door monitoring to your smart home system. 

    5.New windows enhance curb appeal. With a wide array of window types and stains, colors, grille, patterns and hardware finishes, replacement windows are great way to update your home’s style. 

    6.No more scraping. If you have older wood windows, gone are the days of scraping and painting them. New replacement windows are available in several different materials that are virtually maintenance-free. 

    7.Improve your windows’ functionality. If your old windows are stuck or hard to open, it may be time to replace them. Or, perhaps you’d like to change the type of window for improved ventilation. 

    8.New windows are easier to clean. Many of today’s replacement window styles tilt in for easy cleaning of both the interior and exterior glass from inside your home. 

    9.Reduce drafts. If you current windows are broken, drafty or have condensation between the panes, it’s probably time to replace them. You’ll wish you had done it sooner. 

As you can see, window replacement can improve your life with better home comfort, safety and less maintenance. Plus, they look great and save money in the long run. So, the next time you ask, “How much does it cost to replace windows?” you might want to change your frame of reference and ask, “How much will it cost if I don’t replace my windows?”

My recent experience with Omni Glass & Paint was fantastic. I had been waiting 3 months for a part for our front door from another glass company in Oshkosh. I reached out to Omni Glass & Paint; they came to look at the door, found the part and installed the part in less than a day. The door works perfect now. I was so impressed with Omni’s work and would highly recommend them to anyone. – Matt Bakalars, Fox Valley Savings Bank

Mark and Jeff installed windows in our home in Oshkosh.  We were extremely happy with their work but more than that, they went above and beyond to install those windows and were extremely friendly and informative along the way.  They even found an issue with rotten wood that the workers who installed our siding just covered up…so we are very grateful. Because of their services we would highly recommend Omni Glass to everyone.  And the windows are outstanding too!   ~ Roxanne D. – Oshkosh, WI

I just called to compliment the man who installed my new shower door.  Jeff was very pleasant, he did an AWESOME job, everything is perfect, and he left the place neater than when he arrived!  Everything lines up, everything fits, nothing leaks! I am so happy with the job he did!   ~ Nancy, Oshkosh, WI

I just wanted to congratulate the great crew we had working at my home, they were fantastic.  I am very, very pleased with their knowledge and abilities, they were the most impressive group of people I have ever worked with. Mark was especially helpful, he was absolutely wonderful to work with. Thanks again!   ~ Rick, P
