New Window Installation

bobbytablesDecember 18, 2012

We recently built a new house and after living in it for awhile we realized we wish we would have had a small window installed in our entry way near the front door. How much would it cost to have a new window installed? Another option could be to add a sidelight window next to the door. How much would this option be? Thank you for your help.

Absolutely no way anyone can give you any sort of an idea from the info your providing.

+1. Very hard to say... What I can say, is that it would not be very easy (and probably not to appealing) to add a sidelight to the existing entry door that is already installed. What style door do you have? If you are just looking for additional light, you could consider a door with more glass.... Otherwise a window "cut-in" to the foyer area might be the best option. With no further info, a total ballpark number on what something like that would cost from a reputable company would be a BARE minimum of $1k-$1500 or so, but likely more. Considerations include: material, size, and options of window, type of construction, exterior cladding type, any electrical plumbing or hvac in the way, etc, etc.
