What Goes Into the Cost of a Replacement Window?

What Goes Into the Cost of a Replacement Window?

August 26, 2019

One of the biggest factors homeowners consider when deciding on replacement windows is their cost. Of course, if all windows are created equal and priced more or less the same, we’d all be clamoring for the best and the latest in window replacement products. Unfortunately, there are many things that ultimately dictate how much a window costs. 

Let our window replacement specialists at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee walk you through the complex process of determining costs so you can stay informed when you’re out shopping for new doors and windows.


The intricate finish and trims that round out Andersen® specialty windows is a combination of technology as well as artistry on the part of our skilled craftsmen. As it is, a major chunk of its final price is based solely on how much labor it took to manufacture one particular window. This is because our products are customized and made to fit your specific needs, all in all, giving you more bang for your buck.


At Renewal by Andersen, we take immense pride in our dedication to improving your home’s energy efficiency. To this end, we use the best glazing options to ensure that your home is well protected by highly rated glass products. Of course, this does increase the price; however, the savings you’ll get on your utility bills will often more than make-up for the cost in the long run.


Every Renewal by Andersen window, whether it’s a picture, double-hung or a casement window, is framed by our exclusive Fibrex® material. This thermopolymer composite is engineered with energy efficiency and durability in mind, ensuring that our products are the longest-lasting products available in the market today.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
