Discussing How Much Double Hung Windows Cost

The cost for double hung windows ranges from $80 to $200 or more. The price varies based on the type of material, manufacturer, and size. Costs typically include the window, labor, and trim. In some cases, however, labor might not be included.

Type of Material

The type of material plays a major role in determining whether you will pay $80 for your windows or more than $200. The most common types of material for double hung windows are aluminum, fiberglass, vinyl, and wood. Wood is the most expensive material, followed by fiberglass and aluminum. Vinyl is the least expensive material for double hung windows.


There are hundreds of double hung window manufacturers to choose from, but several manufacturers are considered the most popular — and the most expensive. They include Andersen, JELD-WEN, Marvin, Milgard, and Pella

These companies and most others sell pre-made double hung windows in many sizes. If  you can’t find the right size window and it has to be custom made,  the cost will be several hundred dollars higher — or more.


Double hung window size varies depending on placement and style. A small casement window for a closet or bathroom will cost less than an oversized window for a living room or dining room. Oversized casement windows are designed for openings as large as 5 1/2 feet x 10 1/2 feet', making them a challenge to install. This difficulty may increase labor costs.
