Sears Bid vs. HD

Tim, I think your estimate on 13 mid grade double hung windows with standard installation. My question is I’ve had Home Depot and Sears out to price my windows and there price was double. Home Depot was just changing the sashes.

The cost calculator on the site is pretty generic -- there are 20 + factors that go into pricing on every project: window size, glass, upgrades, spacers, foam fills, work to existing frames and sills, exterior capping, type of installation, and many more. That's why we suggest getting the three to four bids. Sears and HD can bid projects out quite a bit higher than local companies -- it all depends on who is pricing it out.

Look at it this way, I can walk into a HD and buy one of their top of the line double hungs for $350 out the door. If my installation is $150 per window (which is relatively high for normal installation) I'm at $500 per window.

If your bid is higher than this, than obviously something about the project is driving up that cost.

Get a couple more bids and tell the companies coming out that you want their best price up front as this is an important, but certainly not the only, factor you will be considering.

Sears vs Anlin And Ply Gem Windows

Here are 3 bids from 3 window replacement dealers.

Bid #1: Sears brand - $6,250 for (3)-6' wide & (1)-8' wide sliding window low-e.
Bid #2: PlyGem brand low-e3 - $3,000 for (5)-6' wide, (1)-8', & (1)-4' wide obscure/tempered bathroom window.
Bid #3: Anlin Catalina brand - $4,600 for (3)-6', (1)-8', & (1)-4' tempered/obscure - all sliding low-e.

Any opinions on what the best option is?

I'm not going to recommend the Sears Brand because I don't know what it is exactly. Sears typically sells a relabeled Simonton window. I would doubt whether the Simonton is a better offering than Anlin. The Ply Gem is cheap, I would imagine that's it's the contractor option, which is not all that impressive. I like the Anlin bid. The Anlin Catalina window is a good window. Seems kind of expensive though, make sure you negotiate the price to get it as low as possible.
