The cost of a new window depends on the type of window you are replacing. Because they can only be opened from the bottom sash, installing single-hung windows are recommended for the ground floor. Single-hung windows are also the cheapest window installation with prices varying between 175$ and 350$. A bit more expensive are double-hung windows, which enable a bigger air circulation. Double-hung window prices range upwards of 400$ and usually not below 300$. If you prefer horizontally-opening sliding windows, you may need to spend from 300$ up to 1000$. However, this low-maintenance option allows for great viewable area and ease-of-use.
Let’s say you are a traditionalist who is considering casement windows. Casement windows are opened like doors, usually internally, via a crank. Being able to swing away from the frames means casement windows provide maximum ventilation along with the safety and convenience of the unique crank mechanism. They will cost you between 250$ and 600$.
