How much does a Hybrid window replacement cost in 2021? | Montreal vs Toronto

Every window type comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. PVC windows, for example, are the least expensive but lack style. Aluminum windows are the opposite. And wood falls in the middle of price and style, but they’re difficult to maintain. They also all age differently, which can lead to various problems in their end of life. Which leads us to think: what if there was a way to combine the best qualities of each? There is! They’re called hybrid windows and they’re quickly gaining in popularity.

Here you’ll find a breakdown for hybrid window costs, for both double- and triple-pane windows:

* Many factors can influence the total cost of renovations, including, but not limited to, the type of work to be done, the area of the city, the type of building, the required labor, the needed materials, the protective measures, the length of the project (faster=higher cost) and contingencies.

Consequences of COVID-19 on the construction and renovation sectors

Keep in mind that certain unforeseen events due to COVID-19 may affect the cost of renovation projects without notice. For example, the industry has come across a treated lumber shortage since the first lockdown, resulting in a massive fluctuation of prices. Other construction materials are likely to experience similar issues. For more details, read our article: Rising Lumber Prices: Another COVID-19 Effect?

What is a Hybrid Window?

A hybrid window is made up of various materials. The inside of the window frame is typically made up of PVC and/or wood and the exterior is made of aluminum – allowing for the best of both worlds. Hybrid windows allow many possibilities, making it a rather popular option for homeowners nowadays. Here are their pros and cons:

The Pros

  • Available in many colours and combinations
  • Elegant finishing
  • Highly energy efficient
  • Great value for money
  • Highly durable

The Cons

  • Not as durable as aluminum windows
  • Available for only certain window sizes
  • Maintenance is required if the interior portion is made of wood
  • Higher price point than PVC windows

Combinations Available

Wood-Aluminum Hybrid Windows

Wood-Aluminum hybrid windows are made of a wood interior and aluminum exterior. That means you get all the weather-resistant and low-maintenance benefits of aluminum windows on the outside. But, inside, you’ll have a classic wood look along with its handy soundproofing ability.

PVC-Aluminum Hybrid Windows

PVC-Aluminum hybrid windows are cheaper than a strictly aluminum option, making it a great alternative. This combination, made of an aluminum exterior and PVC interior, gives you all the perks of aluminum and all the advantages of PVC, which offers great resistance to humidity and requires low maintenance.
