New Windows for our Colonial
We are considering installing wood windows on the front of our colonial more for aesthetic reasons than anything else. I hate how the thin vinyl windows seem to disappear when viewed from the street.
So if we want some wood windows so we can change colors what do you suppose they would run per window in standard sizes? Is there a faux wood alternative that still allows painting?
My contractor verbally quoted me vinyl colored windows for $250 each and $100-$150 to install. He quoted wood at $290-$450 per window for wood. Does that sound right? So if I have 10 across the front are we really looking at a $5-$7k project for wood windows?
