Replacement windows with blinds between the glass?

I am renovating my home and replacing all the windows with vinyl replacement windows. If I could get the blinds built-in to the new windows it would save the cost and labor of installing blinds after the fact.

Do any replacement window manufacturers offer blinds between the glass for their single or double hung windows?

Several companies offer replacement windows with built in blinds or shades. However, that feature is not available on lower cost windows and is a pretty expensive add-on. Measuring and hanging blinds is simple. If you're looking to save money, consider doing it yourself.

The benefit to blinds between the panes of glass is cleaning. Nobody ever said they were inexpensive. Cheap blinds can be had for less than $10 per window while adding them between the glass of a window could cost ten times as much.

I have them in my sliding glass doors, Like them a lot but for windows you will still need curtains or blinds for look.

I had no idea it was so expensive. Just thought it would simplify things. Thanks everyone for the feedback.

If you aren't dead set on vinyl, Pella precision fit aluminum clad wood windows are replacement windows that can be ordered with blinds but they will be about $800 each, including blinds.
