- Better curb appeal. The look of the house can be drastically improved with the new windows. It's an update which will rejuvenate your home or even change its style if going with modern black windows or removing/changing the glass grills.
- Better noise reduction. Energy efficient windows also have better noise reduction. You will notice right away how quiet your new windows are. Your home tranquillity will definitely gain some points.
- Better function. Your windows day to day use will improve. The new good quality windows are easy to open and close, there is just one handle for the multipoint lock mechanism, the crank handle folds in to be away from the blinds, the screens are spring-loaded with no pins, etc.
- Better cleaning. New windows are designed for ease of cleaning so it will not be a chore anymore. The new glass can be even upgraded to become self-cleaning.

Our clients ask
What is the cheapest way to change a window?
Material wise from wood, aluminum, aluminum clad or fiberglass windows, you won't have any shortage of options. But if you're trying to replace windows on a budget, vinyl windows are typically going to be your best bet. They'll provide you with a long list of benefits while coming in at just a fraction of the price of other windows.
Installation wise retrofit installation is the cheapest way to replace the windows, because it saves money on labor and parts, as long as you are Ok with some cons it has.
What time of year is best to replace windows?
Not too hot, but not too cold. Your best bet is to plan your window replacement for a time of year when the weather will be warm, ideally in the spring or early summer.
However, having windows installed over the cold months can save you money and time as waiting times are shorter.
How much should you pay for a replacement window?
The average cost to replace windows in your home as of 2022 is $600 to $800 per window. This cost includes the price of each window, plus the cost of professional labor and installation. You can expect to pay an average of $400 to $600 per window in material costs, and about $200 per window in installation costs.
Should I replace all windows at once?
Many professionals agree that if homeowners can afford it, they are better served by replacing all their windows in one order. The installation team can complete the full job in a couple of days. When you do all of the windows at once there is less paperwork, less time, and less stress. Most windows and doors companies offer discounts on full-house window installations.
How long does it take for windows to be replaced?
Once your windows have been produced, and your installers are at your home, installation is usually a fairly quick process – an average of 45 minutes to an hour per window.
Can I replace windows myself?
If you're naturally handy and have experience in similar home improvement projects or know how to install a replacement window, plus the time to do the job right, it's entirely possible to install your own windows. The downside is it takes time, especially if you are installing multiple windows. Also doing something for the 1st time will be a learning curb with a few mistakes, which are not ideal to have on the product which should last you 20-30 years.
We recommend that you trust this job to professionals that have the right tools and skills to get the job done right and quick and will leave a warranty for your piece of mind.
Can you replace windows without replacing the frame?
If your frames are in good condition, you can replace the window without replacing the window frames – this is known as a frame to frame or retrofit window replacement. However, if your frames are aging, it will be best to opt for full-frame or brick to brick windows replacement.
How often should house windows be replaced?
Home windows from the builder have a lifespan of 15-20 years, renovation grade is 25-30. Once they reach this age, the glass seal fails, the weatherstrips and locking mechanisms start to weaken or fail, which leads to drafts and water seepage.
How do I prepare my house for replacement windows?
Clear a Path. Installers will frequently enter and exit your home while moving from room to room. They will be handling large and heavy windows. You want to make sure they have a clear path for safety reasons. You don’t need to clear everything out, just make sure they have easy access by clearing the way. Move any furniture and other things that might be in their way to get to the windows and work around them. Don’t forget to move any items outside your house as well, such as patio furniture, hoses, and yard ornaments. You will especially want to move any fragile plants so they do not accidentally get trampled.
Remove Window Treatments. Next, make sure to remove all window coverings, including sheers, blinds, and curtains. They are not part of the window installation and will only be in the way to do the job properly. Consider taking down any wall decor and photographs close to the windows. Nothing should be unintentionally knocked over while installing new windows.
Put Down Dust Covers. The installers will have the drop sheets, but they will not have any covers for the furniture, so if you wish to save yourself some time with dusting, you might consider covering your belongings around the windows. Conserve Energy. You might want to crank the thermostat down to avoid wasting energy on cooling or heating the house.
