Entry Level Double Pane Windows

The entry level price point ranges from $200 to $500 fully installed. Everything at the bottom to mid range of this price point is going to be a vinyl replacement window, which is by far the least expensive type of frame. There are loads of budget vinyl window manufacturers and frankly the quality of their products is not going to provide very good long term value for the consumer. Manufacturers may cut corners on the thickness of the frame, the quality of the glass, hardware etc. to keep the costs down. It’s right about the $350 and higher level that consumers will be getting some nice value for their dollar.

Mid Range Double Pane Windows

The mid range price point goes from $500 to $800 and will be the higher end vinyl windows and the mid range for fiberglass and aluminum frames. Also in this range will be the lower price point for wood clad windows, which are very nice looking, but they are expensive windows and require some maintenance to keep them functioning properly. Many manufacturers carry three models or series of windows, their entry level, their standard and their high end. Consumers will get the most value for their money by going with this mid range model from a good manufacturer.

Installation Costs

We’ve included the cost of installation in all of the pricing above, but it’s certainly worth a few words here. There are a number of installation methods that all carry a range of price tags. Insert installs are the simplest and cost $50 to $75 per opening, standard that runs $75 to $150 per opening and full frame installation that runs from $150 to $250 per opening. It’s also worth noting that finding a high quality window contractor that doesn’t cut corners is just as important as finding a good window.
