Replacement windows pricing in Calgary is a very important factor for most homeowners, and ultimately, it is the biggest factor when it comes to making important decisions. We will work with you to provide free, accurate estimates. Having a solid understanding of prices for Calgary windows and the various things that can affect these prices will help you make better choices for your needs and your budget.

Retrofit vs. Full Frame Replacement

By far, the biggest factor that figures into replacement windows pricing in Calgary is whether you need retrofit window replacement or full-frame replacement. A retrofit occurs when your existing frames are in great shape and you can just replace the sashes and glass. On average, it costs between $250 and $500 or so per window for retrofits like this. However, if your frames are not in optimal shape and you must replace them the cost is considerably higher. For a full-frame replacement, you should calculate an additional 50% to 100% on top of the cost of retrofitting. On average, considering both retrofits and full frame replacements, it could cost anywhere from $250 to $1000 per window.

Remember that you can receive quotes for your window replacement project, and when you do, you can ask us about what these quotes include. Unfortunately, some companies will charge you for a full frame replacement when a retrofit is all that is necessary. In this case, you may spend thousands of dollars beyond what you needed to spend. Here at Canadian Choice™, we will provide information about our window replacement upfront and explain our free estimates thoroughly.

Types of Windows & Pricing in Calgary

Another factor that will influence replacement windows pricing in Calgary is the type of window you choose. There are three factors that come into play here.

  • Window Style – There are several styles of windows, and these range from the ever-popular casement window to the big and spectacular bow windows. Different styles require different materials and amounts of labor to install, so this can have a tremendous effect on your project’s overall budget.
  • Panes of Glass – The more panes of glass in each window, the more those windows will cost. For example, a single-pane casement window costs significantly less than a triple-pane hung window with gas between each pane as insulation.
  • Frame Material – Finally, if you opt for full-frame replacement, the frame material itself also influences the overall cost. Vinyl is usually the least expensive option because it is cheap to make and easy to install, but wood lasts far longer when properly maintained and provides better insulation from the Calgary cold. For this reason, you may pay twice as much for wood frames.

While these things are the biggest indicators of replacement windows pricing in Calgary, there is still one more thing to consider, and that is the additional work or repairs required to provide you with safe, efficient windows. Canadian Choice™ will work with you to give you all the information you need, including accurate prices, and keep your costs as low as possible.
