Wood Windows Prices By Size

Consumers will get the most value for their money in the $80 to $100 psf range. Wood windows also require maintenance over the years, specifically stain or paint to preserve the quality of this organic material. While many consumers can get sucked into the beauty of wood in the showrooms, going with an inorganic material like vinyl or fiberglass is a much more hassle free option.

Small Window Price Range (18" by 24"): $180 to $360 fully installed

Medium Window: (32" by 38"): $504 to $1,008 fully installed

Large Window: (44" by 52"): $888 to $1,776 fully installed

Fiberglass Windows Cost By Size

Fiberglass windows prices run roughly $60 to $100 per square foot full installed. Fiberglass is one of the more expensive frame materials, on par with aluminum. Fiberglass is an excellent frame material, strong and durable, and a great choice for residential windows. It is more expensive than vinyl, but should last longer and hold up very well.

Small Window Price Range (18" by 24"): $180 to $300 fully installed

Medium Window: (32" by 38"): $504 to $840 fully installed

Large Window: (44" by 52"): $888 to $1,480 fully installed

Aluminum Window Prices By Size

Aluminum prices run roughly $60 to $100 per square foot full installed. Aluminum is one of the more expensive frame materials, on par with fiberglass. Aluminum windows aren't very versatile, they are an excellent option in very hot climates like Texas, but outside of this they really aren't the best option for residential homes. (These are used almost exclusively in commercial projects due to their incredible strength.)

Small Window Price Range (18" by 24"): $180 to $300 fully installed

Medium Window: (32" by 38"): $504 to $840 fully installed

They tend to be a bit overpriced (this is a broad statement, there is value in the marketplace), but can offer some good performance numbers and durability.

Small Window Price Range (18" by 24"): $150 to $330 fully installed

Medium Window: (32" by 38"): $454 to $756 fully installed

Large Window: (44" by 52"): $800 to $1,332 fully installed

Sunrise Vinyl Replacement Windows Cost

Hello, I recently had Sunrise vinyl replacement windows installed & need to get an estimated cost per window. I had 3 slider windows 72 x 44 and 2 double hung windows 26 x 44. I would just like to know a break down of what one of the slider windows and one of the double hung windows cost approximately for tax purposes.

Kay - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kay, if you had the windows installed, don't you know what you paid. On average, a Sunrise double hung should run $550 to $650 installed. However, it's like asking what a Toyota Highlander costs -- it can run $32K to $45K based on all the features and packages. The same goes for window because there are so many variables with installation requirements.

Window Prices Per Frame

A couple of quick questions: do those window prices mean per frame or per pane (or a double casement should I expect double that price)? Also, is that for inserts or full replacement?

Thanks again,

Chris - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

It's for say a 32" w by 42" h window replacement, not full installation. Honestly, projects have too many factors to give definitive pricing. It's just a guide. The bids are going to be the best way to judge the fair cost.

Feel free to send me your bids and I'll give you my two cents.

Large Window Sizes

Question, I am pricing large windows for our church,, like 52" wide 134" in heights. My quote went from a barrington to an imperial model due to the fact that we wanted tinted glass and the dealer said we had to go to a heavier frame, required 3 separate panes of glass. Does that make sense?

Pauline - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Pauline, without seeing the particulars of the opening, I can't honestly say. As a general rule of thumb, a larger opening does often require a stronger frame to insure that the window frame doesn't warp over time with the stress of the extra weight across the span. Here is what I would suggest -- get a couple more opinions from other companies like the one that carries Soft-Lite.

Three or four opinions should provide you with a clear picture of what is required. You will also get a chance to see more pricing options and brands, as well as the ability to use the lower bids to help negotiate the best price with the company that you like. Here is an article about negotiating in case you want to take a look. Feel free to send me the bids when you receive them and I'm more than happy to give you my opinion on the price and the window brands you are considering!

Cost Estimate On A Large Window

Hello Tim, I have a 106" x 46" solid glass window and would like to replace with a window that has 2 side windows, I prefer to have the side windows open in or out, as opposed to sliding side to side. Could I get an estimate of the cost involved for a medium grade window with installation?

Thanks much, Joni

Joni - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joni, honestly I can't give you a quote without seeing what the set up is like, nor would any credible window company. The good news is that window companies offer free bids so you lose nothing by getting a few local companies out to bid out the project. Make sure you don't fall for any hard sells where they make you sign a work order then and there. Make it clear up front that you are collecting three to four bids and you would appreciate their best bid for the project.

Once you have your four bids, take a couple of days and pick the one that seems like the best mix of price and quality. Feel free to send the bids to me and I'd be more than happy to give you my two cents.

Del Mar Window Sizes

We have received an estimate to replace 22 windows and 1 slider for $22,252.99. This is for Del Mar windows and Malibu slider. Nine of them will have grids. Just trying to determine if the is a good estimate or inflated. We do have two windows that are 95 & 96" wide and our slider is 96" wide. However, we do have 8 what I would consider small windows as well. Three of them do not open so do not even have sliders.

Diana - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Diana, this seems high to me, although I don't know what's involved in the installation so I will not say for sure that this is unreasonable. Assuming that the slider is $2000, which is on the expensive side for a vinyl patio door, that's over $1000 per window. Typically, I would say that you should be able to get a good quality vinyl window installed for $400 to $600 per window. Of course, there are lots of factors that can push this number above or below the number I quoted. I think you need to check out our recommended windows page and search for local companies that carry the brands listed in the mid range and premium categories. Getting a few more bids will tell with reasonable certainty whether the bid you have is fair or too high. West Coast vinyl manufacturers that I typically recommend include Milgard, Amerimax, Anlin (which you already have), and the premium models from Simonton.

Anlin Patio Sliding Doors Quote

Hi Dane, Recently we got a quote for Anlin brand patio doors and French doors from American Vision windows. We need 2 patio doors and 2 single French doors to replace. The price is as follows and includes installation. Is that a fair quote?

68"x80" XO sliding door for $2565 each
32"x80" French door for $2066 each

Elaine - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Elaine, the prices quoted don't seem outrageous to me by any means. Doors are tricky due to custom sizes etc. But a sliding door at that size for $2600 installed is a pretty decent price. However, don't take my word for it because obviously I don't know the specifics behind the install etc. Get a couple more price quotes on comparable products -- get a quote from a local Milgard dealer and one from an Amerimax dealer and see how their vinyl sliding patio doors and french doors compare. This is really the only way to determine if you are getting the best deal possible. One other point to consider -- you can always take the lower quote back to the Anlin dealer and use it to negotiate a lower price from them. The bottom line is, the more quotes you get the stronger bargaining position you'll be in!

Renewal By Andersen Price By Size

wanted to replace 7 windows plus a slider with Renewal by Andersen. After 5 hours in my house with their salesman pitching the superiority of their windows I ended up purchasing one casement (34.5 x 57.5) and one double-hung (47 x 57) window for $4427 plus $288.30 for a mandatory building permit. I planned to complete the rest of the windows within the year, however due to a breach of trust and discomfort with the salesman I am now looking for a different company. I love the windows, I don’t love the price tag, I really don’t like the changing prices and sales tactics.

Unfortunately Renewal by Andersen is only sold by a single dealer in my area so finding another dealer is not an option. Now I am looking to find a good window from a reputable company that offers a style that will be compatible with the two Renewal windows I just had installed. I live in California so extreme weather isn’t an issue, but the windows are west facing and get full sun all afternoon which is why the Renewal windows with the composite material seemed so attractive. Plus the salesman said that they were able to make a smaller frame with larger glass area due to the added strength of the proprietary composite material. I want more glass, less frame. Can you provide some advice about the companies I should be looking at?

Jacque - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jacque, RBA makes a nice window, but they are VERY expensive. The Andersen 100 window is made of the same fibrex material and is often sold in home depot for around $250 to $450 for the window, depending on the upgrades, glass, etc. that you want. You would obviously have to find your own installer -- I wouldn't recommend going with the HD subcontractors, but you could find an experienced installer and get them to install it for you.

The other option is to go with a vinyl window -- Milgard, Amerimax and Anlin should all be available in California and they make a good quality product at a nice price point. Have the local dealers or companies come out and give you a bid and compare how the window looks to your current Renewal Windows. Marvin Infinity is a fiberglass window, but it should look somewhat similar to the Renewal as well.

Anlin Windows Costs By Sizes

Our recent quote from American Vision for Anlin Del Mar windows took our breath away! To summarize, out of 25 replacement windows plus 8 sliding (Malibu) doors and 1 single French door, our quote was $55,224. But the rep gave us enough credit to drop it down to $42,860! Examples were 31" X 78" single French door $1959 + $500 installation. A 94" X 78" OXXO slider $2990 + $500 installation. Three tiny 12" X 28" stationary glass replacements were each $400 + $175 installation. Needless to say, we will continue to shop for bids.

Krissy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Krissy, it does sound like the bid was higher than it should have been, although I will say that patio doors can be expensive, especially for custom sizes etc.

You have the right idea though, keep getting bids until you find the product, company and price that is right for you. The bids are free and they come to your house, so why not collect as many bids as you need to to get to right!
