Replacing all windows, is this too expensive??
I own a tudor home with 15 window openings which contain casement windows. The openings can contain 1,2 or 3 windows. Below are links to see each example. All the windows in my house are one of these 3 layouts. Also included a pic from outside.
I would like to replicate the look as closely as possible. We had a window company come and suggest Pella, Marvin or Andersen. We ruled out Andersen because the darkest exterior color on the 400 series is too light for our liking.
They said Marvin or Pella would work with low maintenance alum clad. They suggested Pella Architect because it would be cheaper than Marvin. They gave us a price quote of ~$24k to replace 15 window openings that contain a total of 27 'individual' casement windows with new construction windows.
I have done a ton of research and there are still a few confusing things to me. Should I refer to having 15 windows or 27 windows for pricing purposes? I have 15 window openings but each opening contains 1 to 3 casement windows.
The best I could tell is the average price to install a new construction window is ~$1k per window. But does this mean it should cost me $15k or $27k? Is paying $24k for Pella Architect windows crazy. I am still considering Marvin but I want to know the ballpark price for Pella Architect to know if I am getting hosed or not.
