How Much Should I Pay for New Windows?

Updated November 21, 2016

The cost of new windows depends upon how many are to be installed and if anything else needs to be replaced. Replacing an existing frame can sometimes cost as much as a window. According to, if construction windows are necessary--where frames also need rebuilding--it can cost between "$5,000 and £26,000" to completely rebuild "all the windows in a home."

Discounts Are Possible

Finding discounts is possible when shopping for new windows. Money can be saved if your windows are a standard size and if you hire a local handyman to get the job done. If you know what you are doing, "installing windows yourself," says "may save £22 to £65 or more per window."

Bottom Line

You should expect to pay between £195 and £455 for every new window. The cost of replacement often depends upon the stability of frames and the overall size of your windows. To install all new windows in a one- or two-story home, you can expect the job, in total, to cost between £1,950 and £13,000.
