Understanding Wood Window Prices and Costs
Wood windows are available in many styles such as double-hung, casement, and awning--just to name a few. And each of these styles has many sizes and in some cases numerous possible configurations that may fit your house. You may find that you have double windows in some locations, and these windows are normally built at the factory.
Style, configuration, and size are going to affect your wood window prices and costs. Plus, the quality of the windows and any upgrades included can also be cost factors. The following prices are for mid-level wood windows with Low-E glass and standard hardware and can give you an approximate idea of the wood window price ranges in various styles:
- Double-Hung. A 20-inch wide by 36-inch tall window may cost around $330, and a 36-inch wide by 62-inch tall window may be about $560.
- Awning. A 24-inch wide by 18-inch tall wood awning window could cost around $230, and a 48-inch wide by 24-inch tall window may be about $370.
- Casement. A wood casement window that is 20 inches wide by 24 inches tall could be about $220, and a window 24 inches wide by 48 inches could run around $340.
These prices are approximate, and you should talk to a window company to get accurate pricing for your home's styles and sizes. Options such as designer hardware, special grill patterns, and specialty woods can add to your window costs.
