Window repair and installation in Cincinnati

Cincinnati skyline

Cincinnati is home to plenty of historic neighborhoods, like Over-the-Rhine, Mount Adams and Columbia Tusculum, where homeowners have aging windows. In fact, if you live in any Cincinnati home and your windows haven’t been replaced in the past 30 years, you should consider replacement windows.

Apart from old age, there are many signs you may need home window replacement or repair:

  • Windows don’t open, close or lock correctly.
  • You notice drafts of air nearby.
  • Outside noise is loudly audible inside your home.
  • Furniture or flooring is fading.
  • Windows are difficult to clean.
  • Your energy bill is increasing.
  • Your windows are ruining your home’s curb appeal.

Replacement windows in Cincinnati fix many of these problems and have a long list of benefits. Among the most important: Their insulating properties mean less work for your heating and air conditioning systems — and lower utility bills. Replacement windows also have sound dampening characteristics, safety features and UV protection. When you sell your home, you can get back as much as 80 - 90 percent of the cost.

Types of replacement windows in Cincinnati

Replacement windows come in all sorts of styles, materials and sizes and have options for number of panes, glazings and coatings. If your outer frame is damaged, you should consider a full-frame replacement window. If your frame is in good condition, you may only want a window insert, which fits into an existing frame and preserves trims and siding.

Window feature Example options Considerations Cost
Glass
  • Tempered
  • Laminated
  • Gas fills
  • Insulated
  • Low-emissivity
Glass features directly affect energy efficiency. Function of size, shape, window style, number of panes, coating, thickness.
Material
  • Aluminum
  • Composite
  • Fiberglass
  • Vinyl
  • Wood
The material will affect the energy efficiency of the window, maintenance requirements and lifespan. Wood and fiberglass windows are more expensive.
Style
  • Single-hung
  • Double-hung
  • Awning
  • Casement
  • Bow
  • Bay
  • Sliding
  • Picture
Window style bears on appearance, airflow, light, ease of opening and closing and cleaning. Single- or double-hung windows are the most affordable; bay and bow windows are the most expensive.

How much does window replacement cost in Cincinnati?

Window replacement cost in Cincinnati varies according to the window style, material, size and features. Most homeowners spend between $300 - $1,200 per window, including installation. The price can be higher for larger windows in more expensive styles, like bay or bow windows.

When choosing a home window repair or home window replacement company, don’t rush into a decision. Get the answers to these questions about each business:

  • Is the business listed as a registered contractor with the City of Cincinnati? If you live outside city limits, does the business have proper qualifications?
  • How many years of experience does the business have? How many installations has it done?
  • Do staff have certifications from any professional organizations?
  • Is a list of references available?
  • Is there a warranty for the parts and installation?
  • How does the installation process work? How long does it take?

If you are replacing windows with ones of the same size and type, you don’t need a permit from the City of Cincinnati. If you live outside city limits, check with your local government.

Get estimates from at least three window companies before starting home window replacement or repair. Make sure the quote is guaranteed in writing.
