Window Replacement: Preparing a Budget

It’s no secret that a window replacement can be a costly, but worthwhile investment. As such, it’s very important for a homeowner to prepare a budget when planning a window replacement. Common mistakes, such as undercutting or overspending, can lead to an underwhelming result for your window project. 

Get an Estimate

First, you need to set your expectations and know that every window replacement project costs differently than everyone else’s. Keep in mind that each window replacement project is unique in its own way due to the window’s style, finish, glazing, contractor fees and other upgrades. With that said, you should still get an estimate to get a ballpark price on your window replacement project. 

You can ask your friends and family who had their windows replaced and ask how much the total project cost. You can even request a quotation from your window contractor to see what kind of replacement windows can fit your budget so you won’t be surprised when the actual replacement starts.

Check the Available Financing Options

It’s no doubt that cash is the most desired payment option for window contractors and homeowners alike since it’s a one-and-done payment with the possibility of discounts offered if you pay in cash. However, it’s understandable if you may not have the required amount on-hand so it’s helpful to have flexible financing options for you to afford your window replacement project. Some of these include credit cards, bank loans, cash-out financing or a home equity line of credit (HELOC). 

Ready an Emergency Budget

During an inspection, your contractor might find underlying issues in your window system that leads to unforeseen repair expenses. Since this isn’t included in your initial budget, be sure to include an emergency budget that’s equivalent to around 10% to 20% of the contact price.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
