Does price seem right: replacement, wood casements. Advice?
We would like to replace 3 windows in our family room. Sizes are approx:
38x33 (double casement)
Our house is 100 years old and has wood trim in the family room, so I don't want vinyl interiors. I would like a solid wood casement or a wood clad interior casement. We also want it to qualify for the energy tax credit.
I received one estimate so far. Pella was a bit over $5,000 installed with the low E coating! There was one lower cost manufacturer called Sherwood that was a vinyl window with a wood veneer interior. I went to see it today and it looked OK. But I didn't care for the hardware (lock and crank). The estimate for Sherwood was $3500 installed.
Are there any other manufacturers that you can recommend for custom sized replacement casements w/ wood interiors?
I think Anderson is out because I was told they don't offer custom replacement casements.
Is the price for Pella about right?? I would guess that Marvin would be more. I was hoping to spend about $3000 to $3800 for these 3 windows max....so I'm getting sticker shock.
Thanks for any advice.
