UPVC Windows Prices : Installation

Cost Of Window Installation

The cost of window installation for standard replacements should typically run something like $100 to $175 per opening. Of course, the full range of UPVC window prices is more like $50 to $300 for replacements. New construction replacement (where the frame, jambs and sills are being replaced) has a range of $250 to $500 per opening. The most important factor in window replacement is finding a good installer who charges a fair price and does not take shortcuts that could end up costing you a lot more down the road when your windows leak air or water.


Cost Of Window Installation


Simple Inserts: $50 - $100 per opening

The cost of window installation for simple inserts will run $50 to $100. $50 an opening is really low - this is the price level where shortcuts may be taken (fiber glass insulation that is just kind of thrown into the opening haphazardly or packed in so tightly that it doesn't have the proper insulating effects.) This UPVC window price will usually not include replacing the sills or stops. This should include measuring and leveling the window, adding insulation around the opening, securing and sealing the window on the inside and outside.


Replacements with Sills And Stops: $100 to $175

The standard cost of window installation will fall between $100 and $175 per opening. This should include measuring and leveling the window, adding a low expanding foam or fiberglass insulation around the opening (foam is preferable and completely watertight), replacing the stops and the sills, possibly adding flashing on the outside and securing and sealing the window on the inside and outside.


Full Frame Replacements: $175 to $250 per opening

The premium cost of window installation will fall between $175 and $250 per opening. This should include measuring and leveling the window, adding a low expanding foam around the opening, replacing the stops, sills and any and all jambs that aren't in good shape, installing a sill pan across the bottom as an added mositure barrier, adding flashing on the outside, cap or replace the exterior wood trim if necessary and securing and sealing the window on both the inside and outside.


Garden Window Installation: $300 to $600

Garden windows are larger units that sit out from the home (often off the kitchen) and therefore demand more support. Contractors will probably rip whatever is there out and get down to the rough opening. They will then place and secure the garden window to the home and properly secure and seal it.


Bay And Bow Window Replacement: $700 to $1000

The cost of window installation for bay and bow windows is much higher due to the size of the project and the additional bracing and support that is necessary to properly secure the unit to the home. Most contractors will tear the existing windows out, take out all stops, sills and jambs and get down to the rough opening. From here they can make sure that there is no water damage or wall issues that would prevent a successful install.
