Window Replacement Cost Estimator

Use our window replacement cost estimator to find replacement project pricing. Our calculator is here on the right —> and will give homeowners and consumers a peak into replacement costs.


“Our window replacement cost estimator makes some assumptions about manufacturers and installation costs, but it does allow visitors to get ballpark pricing for hundreds of combinations of window styles and frame types.”

Window Replacement Cost Estimator Examples

By adding the style and frame type, we can get a pretty good baseline price on the window itself. This isn’t how manufacturers comes up with pricing per se, but it does allow you to mix and match hundreds of combinations of styles and frames.

Here are some examples:

If you select a casement with a composite frame – $225 + $150 for a total of $375.

If you select a double-hung with a vinyl frame – $150 + $100 for a total of $250.

If you select a thermal window with a uPVC frame – $175 + $125 for a total of $300.

After Step 1, we have the baseline pricing for the window itself.


Window Replacement Cost Range

Getting baseline pricing is good, but it doesn’t go nearly far enough. For instance, an Andersen 400 Series Double Hung Wood Tilt-Wash costs $530 for the window itself, a far cry from the baseline cost of $325. That is why we ask you to select a manufacturer and multiply this to our baseline price to come closer to the actual cost for the window itself.

Entry level selections keep the baseline price unchanged. Mid range multiplies the baseline by 1.4 and High End multiplies the baseline by 1.7. In the case of the Andersen window, $325 x 1.7 equals $552, which is close to the actual cost.

After Step 2, we have the price for the window by style, frame and level of manufacturer.


Add Installation Cost

Our cost estimator determines install costs by the number of windows selected. Simple inserts adds $65 per window, standard install is $125, full frame is $250 and historic home installation is $200 per window.

After Step 3, we have the total installed price on a single window.

Number of Windows

Here we simply multiply the window and installation price totals by the number of windows need for a project.

After Step 4, we have the complete project price.
