Our team has spent countless hours working to get our pricing calculator as accurate as possible. The formula starts by adding frame material to style of window to create our baseline pricing. The is essentially the entry level price for the window of your choice - by breaking up frame and style, you can choose from some 40 window combinations. By selecting entry, mid or high end product, our pricing calculator uses a multiplier to account for different levels or grades of product. Installation pricing is determined by the four main methods and the most common prices associated with each. And finally, the number of windows selected is a multiplier that is applied to both the window prices as well as the installation selection. The result is the most accurate calculator online.

Window Replacement Cost Estimator Questions
Pricing On Your Website
I have been in the construction business for 3 decades in the Midwest and have managed a variety of projects including commercial, historical and monumental applications. That includes hundreds of residential window replacements from government housing to multi-million-dollar single-family Estates; and everything in between. Your prices may be accurate in FL or TX; but they are laughably low for colder states like Wi.,Mi., or MN.
[Site Editor's Answer]
All of our questions/posts are from consumers who tell us how much rep bids out their projects...we don't make anything up because we don't have a dog in any of these fights. Consumers tell us their bids and we help them lower them as much as possible. Prices can vary by state to state, but the overwhelming number of prices listed on the site are from homeowners themselves. Not from us.
Window Cost Estimates
I have received two window replacement cost estimates from local companies. They are for 5 double hung windows and 1 sliding patio door. Both bids are virtually identical and they are right around $6000 for the windows/door, removal, installation, haul away and taxes. One is from a local Jeld Wen dealer and the other is from Anlin. I was curious which one you thought was the better deal? Thanks in advance for your help!
[Site Editor's Answer]
Margo, Anlin is the better manufacturer of the two by quite a bit. They are one of the better quality operations on the West Coast in general. Jeld Wen makes a very good door, but their vinyl windows leave something to be desired in my opinion. In terms of price, that's a good replacement window estimate for the 5 windows and 1 door. $500 a window for Anlin is actually darn competitive from what I've seen. Have you used our window replacement cost estimator to the right to check out how the costs compare?
Window Costs By Region
Is there a big price difference depending on the region in which you live. I'm in Oregon and am trying to figure out if the price of windows will change from Portland, to Eugene, to Asheville. Thanks.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Steph, different regions in the U.S. will have different window prices, but urban centers like Eugene and Portland will probably have similar prices. The place you will see price changes is urban and rural areas. Monstly this is because companies in urban areas have to pay more for operating costs, advertising, rent, etc. Business then pass these higher costs on to the consumer.
