How Does the Kukun’s Window Replacement Cost Estimator help you?

The total cost to remove and add new windows will depend on several factors such as:

  • Number of windows
  • Types of windows
  • Style of window frames
  • Materials used
  • Insulation requirements
  • Window sizes
  • Installation cost
  • Local labor costs
  • Your zip code.

Now, factoring in all these inputs for cost calculation is difficult, tricky, and time-consuming. So this is where our cost calculator can step in to help. We make the process simple, smooth, and hassle-free. We remove the pain of going through multiple permutations in order to arrive at an estimate that meets your needs.

Our free and easy-to-use window replacement cost estimator gives you detailed options to enter inputs and then calculates an estimate of your expenses. Even better: You can try out any number of combinations to finally arrive at your desired figure!

Let us take you through our estimator so that you can see what it takes into consideration when calculating your total replacement cost.

1. To start, you will see a screen that asks you to enter the number of windows. Just add the required number and click on ‘start estimate.”

2. On the next screen, you will be asked to enter your zip code and year of built of the property. We do not share this information but it helps us to give you a better estimate because labor and material costs vary wildly by geography.

3. If you wish, you can check the box with “Include the equity I could be building in my house calculations” and enter the complete address, allowing us to not only estimate the cost for your remodel, but also to calculate your return on investment (ROI).

The ROI is based on real estate activity around your home, as well as renovation activities (e.g., permit data and home sales history in your area). Please note that this is applicable only for a 'Down to the Studs' project, which is part of the next step. You may also choose to leave the box unchecked and proceed as follows to get your estimated renovation cost.

4. After you enter your location, select the option that best describes the scope of your renovation:

Ready To Sell

A 'Ready to Sell' window replacement ensures that inefficient or leaking single-pane windows are replaced with dual-pane, vinyl windows. After completing this project, you can expect your house’s appearance to increase manifold.

Typical Renovation

A 'Typical Renovation’ window replacement involves replacing leaking, inefficient, single-pane windows with dual-pane varieties, made of fiberglass and/or wood.

Down To The Studs

A 'Down to the Studs' window replacement involves replacing leaking, inefficient, single-pane windows with dual-pane versions made of wood and/or fiberglass. These windows feature high-end hardware.

That’s it! You will now get a precise estimate for your window project.

Once you are ready to move forward with your estimate, you can easily apply for a loan, analyze your finance options or hire a professional to get started on the work right away. We offer you options for professional remodeling contractors who have worked in your neighborhood and who have been vetted by your neighbors and your city. You can explore the contractor's profile, check out their online reviews, view all their previous permits, and ask around your vicinity about their reputation.

Our cost estimator also gives you the option to calculate how much of your cost you can expect to recoup. You just need to enter a few details, including:

  • Zip code
  • Full address
  • Number of bedrooms and bathrooms in the house
  • Year built
  • Property type
  • The current market value of the property
  • Does the home have a garage or swimming pool?
  • Size of the house and lot in square feet

The above information will be used to calculate the material and labor costs in your area to arrive at the total amount that you can recover from this project.
