Benefits of replacement windows in Denver
Residential windows have a lifespan of 15 - 30 years before needing repair or replacement. The benefits of home window repair and home window replacement in Denver are numerous:
Lower energy costs: Energy-efficient windows insulate your home, reducing heat transfer between your house’s interior and exterior and putting less stress on your heating and cooling systems. Look for ENERGY STAR-qualified windows, which lower household energy bills by an average of 12 percent per year. ENERGY STAR windows have an NFRC label, which helps you compare performance ratings.
Easy operation and maintenance: Opening, closing and locking your windows is important for natural home ventilation and safety. Replacement windows are easier to clean and have fewer maintenance requirements than older windows.
Less noise from outside: Glazing features and other options affect a window’s Sound Transmission Class rating, which measures ability to block sound. The higher a window’s STC rating, the less noise you’ll hear from outside.
Protection from UV rays: The sun’s ultraviolet rays are bad for your health and home’s flooring, carpet, art and furniture. Replacement windows with low-emissivity (low-e) coating reflect most of the sun’s UV rays while still allowing in natural light.
Curb appeal and home value: New windows are among the most appealing exterior projects to homebuyers, according to the National Association of Realtors. Homeowners recover a large percentage of the cost of replacement windows upon selling.
How much does home window repair and replacement cost in Denver?
Denver homeowners pay an average of $230 for home window repair. Home window replacement costs are higher, ranging from $300 - $1,500.
Most window companies in Denver offer a free in-home visit to examine your windows, discuss solutions and provide a cost estimate. The cost of home window repair or home window replacement depends on these factors:
Repair versus replacement: If you have broken glass or a crank isn’t working, you may only need repair. For more extensive problems — water leaks, problems opening or closing a window — or if you have single-paned windows, replacement is the better, if more expensive, choice.
Inserts versus full-frame replacement: Replacement window inserts fit into an existing frame. If your frame is in bad condition or you want to make a major change to window style or size, full-frame replacement windows are necessary. Full-frame replacement costs 20 - 30 percent more than an insert.
Window size: As replacement window dimensions increase, so does price.
Window style: The most popular replacement window styles in Denver are double-hung, casement, awning, sliding, picture and bay/bow. Double-hung windows are least expensive; bay/bow windows cost the most.
Window material: Vinyl and aluminum are less expensive than wood, composite and fiberglass frames.
Glass: Replacement windows come with options like triple-glazing, impact-resistance and gas filling.
Installation: The cost to install replacement windows in Denver is usually $100 - $300 per window.
How to choose a window installer in Denver
Look for a licensed contractor in the City and County of Denver to both purchase replacement windows and have them installed. You can verify a contractor’s license on the City and County of Denver website.
Your window installer in Denver should be well-reviewed and take time to visit your home and provide a free consultation. Ask these questions:
How much experience do you have selling and installing windows in Denver?
Do you have a list of customer references?
Do you have proof of active insurance? Are you bonded?
Can you describe the differences between your window styles and materials?
Who will be installing the window(s)? Does that person have any professional certifications?
How long will it take to get the window(s)? How does installation work, and how long does it take?
Do you offer any financing options?
Is there a warranty covering both parts and labor?
Get at least three written estimates with guaranteed pricing before choosing a window installer in Denver. Before installation begins, make sure there is a written contract with a work summary, costs and payment details, projected start and end dates and contractor information. If you live in a designated historic landmark or district or you are changing the size of a window, don’t forget about a building permit.
