Best High End Replacement Windows

High end replacement windows ranges from $750 to $1500 installed per window (there are windows that are even more expensive than this but we won't go into these). We will go through what we consider to be the best high end replacement windows in this price range, both at the lower end and the upper end.

Windows Installed From $750 to $1500

Okna Starmark Or 900 Series (Composite Frame)

The Okna Starmark is a composite frame that is a bit thicker than most, although it has pretty nice sitelines. There are installers who feel that the frame's bulkiness takes away from the viewable glass area. Minus the bulky frame, it is one of the very best windows as far as performance numbers and overall construction.

Target Price Installed: $750

Marvin Ultimate (Aluminum Clad)

Ultimates are Marvin's high end custom wood window line that is regarded by many installers as one of the best wood window options on the market. The windows themselves are extremely nice look and homeowners can select from Douglas Fir, Pine, Cherry, Mahogany and White Oak. Each window can be customized and upgraded so the price below could go well above the $1000 mark with some nice upgrades.

Andersen 400 Series (Wood clad)

The 400 Series is also an upgraded vinyl clad wood window from the 200 Series. It offers betters craftsmanship and is available in more sizes, colors and options. This series is also available in two models; the Woodwright and the Tilt-Wash. The Tilt-Wash uses the same PPG Flexicron finish on the sash, but has a better sill design than the 200 version. The Woodwright uses the same sill and frame that's on the Tilt Wash, but uses their fibrex finish on the sash, considered a much better feature than the PPG Flexicron option. The Woodwright is only available in a limited numbers of colors. Many contractors put the 400 Woodwright at the top of the list of Andersen products.

They said their windows were Anlin Del Mar from American Vision. Do you think the price is reasonable? Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Editor's Reply

Jennifer, it does sound a bit high to me, but not unusually high. I really think you need a few more bids to determine if it is indeed high. I would suggest finding a Milgard dealer, an Amerimax dealer, and perhaps a Simonton dealer who could quote you on the Simonton Impressions Series.

I would tell the Milgard and Amerimax dealers that you have a bid on the Anlin Del Mar and ask them to bid your project for their comparable window. Don't tell them the price bid you have though. Make it clear that you were uncomfortable with how high the bid is, and that you want their best quote and that you will be making your decision in the next week or so.

Hopefully, you will get some lower bids than this. If you still like the Anlin window and installer, you can then take your lowest bid back to him and tell him that you are ready to go with him if he can match the lowest bid you have. I think this approach is how you find his true price floor.
