How Much Does It Cost To Install A Fibergalss Window?
Fiberglass Window Costs
Fiberglass is chosen as a material for windows due to its ability to resist expanding and contracting whenever the humidity or temperatures change. They are ideal for all locations and all seasons. They are viewed as superior, even though they are at a reasonable price, and their ability to help a home become energy efficient makes them a very popular choice.
They are available in every style, including traditional options like single or double-hung, picture and fixed, casement, egress, bay and more. The pricing varies based on the type or style, the size, and the level of difficulty it will take to install it properly.
Fiberglass window installation: the cheapest option is a single pane awning window and the expensive option of the range is an argon-filled casement window.

Other considerations and costs
- Exterior and interior framing and casing add to the good looks and long life of any window. Each step (inside and out) will require labor and materials, and averages at $35 or more per window.
- There is very little maintenance required of the fiberglass windows and they are very energy efficient, making their per window installation prices reasonable and likely to generate a good ROI. They last around 50 years.
- Having windows installed in late autumn and early winter is a good way to get the best price as that is the contractors’ down season.
- A fiberglass window installation is not a DIY project. It takes a lot of know-how to do it properly, and since a window might compromise certain elements of the structure if installed badly, it is best to hire experts to do the work – after getting a few quotes or estimates, of course.
