The average cost for a window replacement is about $1,500.

How much does it cost to replace or install windows?

The windows are important parts of any home as they allow the air and sunlight to enter, while providing views outside. However, windows do not last forever, with the average lifespan being 20 to 25 years before needing replaced. There are various reasons a homeowner may decide to replace the windows, including the desire of increasing energy efficiency or if the sheathing or frames are rotting, there are leaks, causing insulation or mold issues, or the desire of increasing the home’s value.

Various factors will impact the overall cost of a window replacement, including the window’s size, material chosen, type of glass, and the current condition of the framing. To replace a 3ft x 5ft double hung, vinyl window has a national average of $1,500. If you’re using wooden window framing, the average cost is $1,875.
