Interior renovationsThe Different Models and Prices for PVC Windows

Windows are an important component of your home, serving as a point of entry for natural light into your space and allowing you to ventilate the rooms. There are several options available on the market, but today we are focusing on PVC windows.

You'll find out about the different models and prices available on the market to make an informed choice, suiting both your budget and the needs of your home in terms of natural light and energy-efficient performance.

What is a PVC window?

PVC refers to the material used for the window frame and shutters. It is an acronym for polyvinyl chloride: this affordable material has helped reduce the cost of manufacturing windows, which in the past were often made of aluminum. PVC helps avoid several issues often associated with windows: it is easy to clean, does not conduct cold or heat and unlike wood, it doesn't rot. Also, unlike aluminum, it won't be affected by rust.

PVC is a good quality material that also offers reliable energy efficiency, a vital characteristic when choosing a window. A nice window with poor energy efficiency will cost you a lot more money in the long run!

Let's take a look at the different types of PVC windows available, as well as their prices.

PVC windows: the different models

If you want to know more about the criteria you need to consider to select the right window, you can refer to our article on how to choose the right window.

Casement windows

Casement windows (also known as ''crank windows'') operate somewhat like a louver shutter, which opens outward, horizontally and along its entire length.

These are highly airtight windows that perform well in periods of high winds because closing the sash (the moving part of the window) and locking the window with a crank creates effective pressure on the window seals. A casement window is a classic choice that blends well with any type of architecture. The only downside is that you can't install a window air conditioner.

The price of casement windows, also known as "French" windows, is around $200 for entry-level windows, this amount can go up to $1000 for high-end models.

Awning windows

An awning window also opens outwards, but horizontally. It provides good protection against rain because the position of the open window lets outside air in without allowing bad weather to enter your home.

If overhead space is limited, but you still want good ventilation, an awning window may be a perfect choice. It is most often used for rooms like the basement and the bathroom.

An awning window can cost between $200 and $700.

Hung sash windows

The sash window opens from bottom to top. This type of window is popular because the outside part of the window is easy to clean from the inside: most sash windows can be pivoted inward to clean them. This window can be partially or completely opened depending on the need for ventilation and it has a large glass surface to let in the sunlight.

The sash window can be single or double. The single hung window opens from a lower panel that slides along the outer panel, which is set in a closed position. A double-hung window, on the other hand, opens from both the interior and exterior panels.

The price of these windows varies between $350 and $700 - note that the cost may be higher if you opt for a double-hung window.

Sliding windows

A sliding window can be opened on both sides of the frame to allow ventilation around the whole window.

A clasp that is located in the middle of the window can be snapped on to fully lock the window. Sliding windows are known for being adaptable and modular according to the space required and your needs.

The cost of a sliding window can vary from $150 to $600 depending on its size.

Summary of PVC window prices

Below is a summary of the costs for different types of PVC windows. Don't forget that these prices are only for one window: the ammount will vary depending on the size, the desired performance, installation costs and other actions that may be necessary as the project is being carried out.

Architectural windows have been deliberately excluded from this summary because their installation is very specific to the size and shape of the windows already in place.

Price per window
Casement
$200 to $1000
Awning
$200 to $700
Sash
