Window Prices Window Prices
Window prices vary due to several factors: style, brand or manufacturer, geographic location (how far you are from the manufacturer or supplier), additional features, popularity of the model, and other considerations. Now that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has passed, part of this economic stimulus package provides a tax credit for up to 30% of the cost of eligible energy-efficient building materials, lowering the effective cost for many types of new windows.
Estimating Window Prices
If you are buying new or replacement windows, it can be confusing to estimate window prices. Don’t let this be a deterrent.
First, search online to find brand names you may be interested in. Consider the top window manufacturers such as Andersen, Pella, Milgard, JELD-WEN and others. You may even find some of these brands carried by outlets like Home Depot. Many window manufacturers’ sites have great resources to help you decide which windows (and which window prices) are right for you.
Window prices range from about $150-200 for a JELD-WEN 2’ x 4’ aluminum window, to about $165-200 for the same size in vinyl, and approximately $270-415 in wood. For Milgard window prices, expect to pay an average of $500-800 per window for replacement windows installed in structurally sound frames.
Window prices may go as high as $1,000 per window, depending on type of frame material and/or glass options. Features such as windows filled with argon gas, double- and triple-glazed windows, increase window prices but help offset the higher cost with increased energy savings.
