Budget Windows: Cost
The average price of a replacement window in Ontario is $800 (including materials and labor); however, depending on the size or type of window you want, you will be looking at anywhere between $800 and $4000.
The cost of your new windows will depend primarily on these factors:
Type of Window
Material of Window
Other factors that will affect the cost of your window installation or replacements are the following:
Size of Window
Insulation of Window
Customization or Special Features
These last 3 factors vary greatly, but will all increase the cost of your windows. The focus of this article will be on the costs related to the first 3 factors: Type of Window, Material of Window, and Labor involved.
The cost of windows depends on factors such as the type, size and materials.
1. Type of Window
According to blog.renovationfind.com, you will pay between $100 and $4500 for a new window. Below is a summary of their breakdown of costs. We have estimated the prices based on current Canadian prices. You will notice that the original amounts they list are less since they are based on American currency.

You'll also want to keep in mind that a window's material will affect the overall cost.
According to Homeadvisor.com, the following materials are more affordable:
Vinyl (a most popular choice for its durability and affordability)
Other materials such as Wood or Composite materials will cost more. Fiberglass generally costs the most; however, most people choose vinyl over fiberglass because they have "similar insulation properties" to vinyl.

Replacing multiple windows at once generally saves you money because they can be bought in bulk.

“We must tell you how pleased we are with the high-quality windows and installation your firm has supplied. A recent very high wind storm provided a small test of the comfort we can anticipate in the winter about to start – very comfortable, quiet and reassuring. ‘Outstanding’ and ‘artisans’ are two words that describe the installers. These gentlemen worked full-out until completion, coping with features unique to our house with competence and admirable skill. They even consulted me to determine which type of “cap” we would prefer on the bay window – I didn’t know a choice was possible. At the end of a major project like this, when we can say we are pleased, impressed and satisfied, that’s high praise indeed.” – D. & L. Luelo
“This August of 2009, we had all of our windows replaced in our home. We truly appreciate the time taken, and help offered in our decision-making process, and the knowledge you brought. We were very impressed with how meticulous, considerate, and efficient the crew was that worked on our home. We managed to have nine windows replaced in one day. Thank you so much for a wonderful job done. We are very pleased with the end result, and when it is time for us to replace our doors, we know who we will call. Thank you so much for everything.” – P. & B. Snyder
