Do "good" replacement windows all cost $600 or so?

That's what I read, but I continually see windows at Lowe's and such for $165 or so. For example they have Pella 250's for that price. What is the deal? I thought Pella are good windows?

Can I get good windows for less than $200 each? I realize I also have to have them installed which would add to the price.

Its sort of like getting what you pay for. I've put in a few windows and dont recall spending more than $250 but that was probably 10 years ago.

Need to watch that brand name, they have several grades of windows!

$600 per window is an average price for an average quality window installed. Your results may vary according to location.

So I'm guessing that the flier I got in the mail for 10 windows installed for around $3800 are cheap quality?

It says they're "4000" series whatever that is.

Can you post a picture of what your dealing with?
Does that price include wrapping the outside trim.
Are you replacing old aluminum windows or just old single pane window sashes with the weights?
Things like adding faux wood grain to the outside, ordering raised dividers instead of flat, larger windows can add to the price.
Are they dealing with old lead based paint and have to install them from the outside?
Depending on what you have now and are replacing, it may be a simple DIY install job that could save you a ton of money.
