Window Installation can increase the value of your home by $1,610

The value of windows in a home can sometimes be overlooked by many homeowners. They are often regarded as just holes in the wall of a house. However, they are more than just that. Windows can bring the light and warmth of a beautiful summer day inside your house. They offer fascinating views for your eyes to feast on and are like permanent ornaments that can beautify not just the inside of your living space, but the outside as well. All this while giving security to your abode from harmful elements and intruders. Since windows are permanent, it is important that their structure, design, and installation should be planned and thought of accordingly. Window installation in Boston, if it is done properly, can enhance not just the facade of your house, but bring additional value to it as well.

Fair price breakdown

Boston window installation costs will always depend on the design of the window that you like, the materials, its size and the number of windows you want to be installed in your house. The average cost of window installation in Boston is estimated to be around $1,870 up to $2,537 with most homeowners paying $450 on average. This price applies to less than 5 installations. The average cost of installing 5 up to 10 windows is approximately between $350 and $650. Technically, the more windows that you want to install, the higher the cost of installation. There are standard sizes of windows available. However, if you want manufacturers to customize a window for you, it will be costlier. Vinyl windows are considerably inexpensive, durable, and low in maintenance. They don’t shrink nor swell even if exposed to nature elements. But then again, they are not as attractive as wood. Wood-framed windows are typically expensive and require careful maintenance. They also need to be refinished every now and then. But, when it comes to the architectural and aesthetic appeal combined with its strength, nothing will beat wood.

Installation of new windows can save considerable amounts of money on utility bills. The lower the U-factor, the more energy-efficient your window. However, this will also mean that the initial cost will be high. Nevertheless, considering the savings that you will get in the coming years, the cost will be worth it. Always remember that just like the rest of the components in your house, Boston window installation is also an investment.

Suffolk County Window Installation FAQ

U-factor or U-value is the term in which a window's heat loss is rated. The lower the U-factor means that the window's resistance to heat flow is stronger. It also means that the insulating properties of the window are a whole lot better. A high-performance double pane window is estimated to have a U-factor of 0.30 or lower, while it is reported that triple panes can have as little as 0.15.

In the end, choosing the right window for your home all comes down to what is your priority. If you are on a tight budget, vinyl windows will be your best choice. However, if you are after quality, added worth to your house, and aesthetic appeal, the wood window is a good option.

A wooden window that is well-maintained and is regularly refurbished can last from 60 up to 100 years. On the other hand, a vinyl window can last for 20 to 40 years on average. However, the life expectancy of a window will always depend on its exposure to the elements. Heat can also affect the deterioration of a window. So if you want your window to last, have them checked and repaired regularly.
