Home Window Replacement Cost
Your home window replacement cost will depend on a number of factors. According to Home Advisor, a single basic replacement unit runs anywhere from $300 to $1,200 for standard sizes, while custom work and bay styles can quickly hit $2,000 or more.
The two main factors in pricing are the design and the materials used.
You will also want to consider what kind of glass you want.
Double-pane windows will cost extra, but experts say double-pane windows can save up to 24% in our cold Ontario climate during the winter and up to 18% during the summer. Triple-panes run 15% to 40% more than a double-pane type, but reduce heat loss even further.
Finally, labour can run approximately $150 to $800 per window or an average of $40 per hour, depending on the difficulty of the project. If you're considering trying to cut corners here, read our article on hiring a residential window replacement service vs taking the do-it-yourself approach.

Home window replacement cost: It's worth the investment
It's generally agreed that quality windows will last at least 15 and 20 years before you need to consider replacing them. However, windows built to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) guidelines can be expected to last 25 years.
In the intervening years, you can expect to repair your windows regularly to protect your home from the elements, both natural and human.
Eventually, though, you will need to replace the entire unit, and you can read our article on 5 Signs It's Time for a Window Replacement to learn more.
Drafty or damaged windows can cause your energy bills to be about 10% to 25% higher, according to Energy.gov. Replacing old, drafty, single-paned windows with Energy Star certified products can result in substantial savings in your energy costs.
As an added bonus, your new windows - and the resulting energy cost savings - can be a big selling point if you’re considering moving out of your home.
