How to Prepare a Window Replacement Budget

Regardless of the reason behind your window replacement, a proper budget is necessary to make it happen. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, the area’s leading window contractor, suggests tips on preparing a budget for your replacement windows:

Window Replacement Budget

Work With a Reputable Contractor

Hire a contractor with vast experience, excellent references and affiliations with reputable organizations in the industry. A contractor with these qualities can help ensure a smooth process and successful results. Before starting on construction, however, first determine exactly what you want. What framing material should your window have? What about glass options? It’s also important to decide on minor details like the color of the frame. Doing so can help avoid delays later on.

Determine the Costs

It’s important to have an idea of how much the process of getting replacement windows is going to cost you. Plunging headfirst into a project without at least a ballpark estimate of the cost is risky and a waste of resources. You can discuss your vision with our expert team at Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois and we can help you get a rough idea of the costs. From there, you can decide whether you’re financially equipped for the kind of window you want.

Make the Necessary Adjustments

Once you have all the details of the project, compare it with your initial budget. If your dream windows cost more than what you expected, you can scale them down carefully by changing a few elements. For instance, you could change your glass choice to accommodate your budget.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
