How Manufacturers Price Out Windows
Most manufacturers price out window models by the lineal foot. So, for instance, a 18"w x 36"h window is priced out at roughly half of a 36"w x 72"h sized window. This is effectively the MSRP (manufacturers suggested retail price). However, most window manufacturers don't let consumers see these prices because they feel it undercuts their distributors and resellers (these resellers are free to price out the window and installation costs in any way they see fit.)
How Local Companies Price Out Windows
Local companies typically buy windows in bulk from manufacturers in much the same way as Nordstroms buys clothing from their suppliers. The local company will provide customers with free project quotes that includes installation and the cost of the window itself. Most local window companies sell several brands of windows such as Milgard, Jeld Wen and Marvin.
Low End Models: $189 to $350 fully installed
Wood Clad Windows
Low End Models: $350 to $550 fully installed
Low End Models: $300 to $450 fully installed
Window Glass Costs
They will also typically offer 3 or 4 glass packages that will each affect the per window cost as well. There will usually be a $50 to $125 upgrade cost to go from the standard window package to one of these better window packages. These upgrades will definitely help the window's overall U-factor, SHGC and air infiltration numbers.
Manufacturers always start off with a window base price that includes standard features that always varies with the particular company. For instance, Window World's $189 window fully installed comes as a bare bones
Reasonable Price For Windows
To the best of your ability, what price range would you say is reasonable/fair? My home is on flat ground with easy access from all sides with stucco siding, so there aren't any special installation requirements that I'm aware of.
Silvia, without seeing the project I really can't say. That where bids come in. They're free and they are professional opinions. Collect four bids (and tell each company that you are collecting bids so you would appreciate their best price).
