Renewal by Anderson
Amount: $43,000.00

Number of Windows: 14 plus 2 slidersNumber Lineal Inches:
Installer: Renewal by Anderson
Just got a quote for 14 windows, and 2 sliders, from Renewal by Anderson. Their quote was nearly $44,000 for their "Series 1," and over $28,000 for their "lower-quality Series 2," (which we were said is their product that supposedly compares to Milgard). We said "no thank you" and sent them on their way very quickly. I can't imagine that anyone in today's economy can justify paying nearly $2800 per window! Wow!

I just wanted to comment on some of these reviews I've read on costhelper.com. I am the owner/operator of JB&R here in the Greater Cincinnati Area going on 9 years strong and still growing. Just wanted to reiterate what another contractor had posted here that if you go with those cheap window guys you will definitely end up regretting it. The compensation these companies offer is so low, an installer cannot survive off of it. Therefore, turnover rates (for subs) are out of control. If you are in my area, give me a call for an honest, true value quote. Our company installs more windows & doors in the area than any other. Having said that, we still only have 8 people on staff. Most of whom have been with me since the beginning. We also offer more than just window and door installations. Custom Carpenters who promise, Quality. Efficiency. Dependability. Every time. That's our promise to all.

We had new windows installed by WindowWorks this week and what a job well done. They worked so neatly around our home even with the muddy exterior. Not one spec of mud got into my house. The crew was in and out and so respectful. And they installed 23 days after we ordered the windows. I guess this is what we expected however in this day in age, you never know what your going to get. Soem neighbors chose another company which I will not mention and they are still having headaches. To WindowWorks, thank you for such a wonderful job. We will refer you to all our friends and family!

I am writing to show my true appreciation for some great work. WindowWorks came out to meet my wife and I and from the minute they assessed our windows all the way to when they swept up the last bit of debris, they were so easy to work with. We had other work done on our home years ago and it was a nightmare but not this time. We were nervous choosing a company because of our past experience and Window Works made us so comfortable. They are truly a company that is the run by the working man for the working man. I know that sounds cliche but we spoke to over 7 people from their company and they were all so down to earth and eager to help and please. Thank you Jim, Mark, Doug, Ron, and of course Kevin, Joe, and brian for your attention to detail. Our new windows are absolutely the best investment we have ever made. For all that want a true company, go to their website www.mywindowworks.com . And they installed the windows 29 days after we signed the agreement when everyone else was 5-7 weeks

Just wanted to post this so you cant say you were not warned. The reason there alot of the $189 guys out there is because they do not pay their installers. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! I have been in this business for 20 years now and have seen it all. If I were a homeowner buying 10k or more in windows I think I would ask to meet the installer before he showed up with a truck that leaked oil on my drive. You can tell alot about the quality of work they are going to do just by visiting with them and asking a few common sense questions. Sorry for my rant! Have a great 2011!

Window replacement for condo
Amount: $5,150.00

Number of Windows: 17Number Lineal Inches:
Brand: Wallside WindowsWindow Type: Double Hung (energy efficient)
Installer: Wallside Windows
17 white, vinyl, energy efficient, double hung windows were replaced on a two-story condo. The 3 estimates I received were $5,150, $5,400 and $7,950. The largest window is 45W x 48H, but most windows are around 36W x 36H. The installation quality is reasonably good.
I think the ballpark to replace vinyl windows in SE Michigan is $300/window for cheap energy efficient ones and $500/window for higher quality ones.

I am fairly pleased to report that we are going to be a bit warmer this winter with our 9 new double hung almond lo E Argon filled double insulated R&R Pro Choice windows. I looked into doing the work myself and it was going to cost about $220 per window. This contractor did the work with a better window (energy Star) for $390 per window installed. I did have to pay an extra $50 per window for the dividers between the glass on the front four windows, but overall a good experience and I think a very reasonable cost. Especially when you deduct the %30 rebate that is $308 per window...Can't wait to see how much we save on Energy bills this winter.

Thanks WindowWorks. You guys deserve this as you totally underpromised and overdelivered. I have heard so many horror stories and I thank God for the way my windows ended up. My home is oer 75 years old and we searched for a window that could be customized to meet our style and the style of our home. WindowWorks was the only company out of the 6 we had out that could do any exterior color. We chose their upgraded glass system with krypton gas and still paid less than some of the guys offering argon. We also got 3 coats of low-e 366 glass which no one else offered. I truly feel they were the only company concerned with qualty rather than selling me a cheap window for alot of money. One company was double their price. Thanks Jim, Kevin, Mike, Cindy, and Doug. I love the windows. Its getting cold and we can't feel a thing.....

Wood clad replacement windows
Amount: $4,200.00
Posted by: Seattle Girl in Seattle, WA.Posted: November 10th, 2010 08:11PM
Number of Windows: 4Number Lineal Inches: 36x55
Brand: EagleWindow Type: Cottage-style double hung wood clad
Installer: DIY
After considering Milgard, Jeld-Wen, Anderson, Marvin, Pella and Eagle, we just ordered four Eagle replacement windows. They are aluminum clad on the exterior and stainable vertical grain douglas fir on the interior. We were trying to recreate the original windows so we sprung for some features that cost extra, including the cottage style (smaller top sash), simulated divided light grill on top sash, antique brass hardware, and vertical grain wood. To qualify for the tax credit, they are triple pane with argon gas and low e coating. They should arrive just before Christmas (Eagle has a longer lead time than most other brands we looked at) and we will have a few days to install them in time to qualify for the 2010 tax credit.
The comparable window from Marvin would have cost about $100-$200 per window.

Number of Windows: 8Number Lineal Inches:
Brand: Home CraftsmanWindow Type: Single hung vinyl
Installer: Joe Cookson & Sons
I got five quotes for tax credit eligible windows to replace 8 old single pane windows. Joe Cookson & Son's originally quoted me at $3756 and I talked them down to $3200 after e-mailing a competing bid to the salesman. I signed my contract, paid $1000 down, and $2200 at completion. The windows are of good quality, and installation was performed well (1 day), however they did leave their work area kinda dirty. I had to reinstall blinds and vacuum up small debris for about an hour after they left. Besides the lack of detailed clean up, I am happy with the final product and pleased the windows work so well. I will get 30% of the windows paid for by the tax credit bringing my total net cost per window to under $300.

We bought the absolute top of the line vinyl window from Greg Mote at MBJ Exteriors. These windows are triple pane with Krypton gas, insulated frames and sashes, SuperSpacer spacer system, with all of the bells and whistles. My favorite feature, besides the energy savings, is the automatic locks. These windows are absolutely phenomenal. Since they were installed four years ago, I have referred 12 of my friends or family, who have all bought either these replacement windows or one of their other high end windows(but cost less). Greg has paid me $1500 in referral fees from it. The service from Greg Mote was probably the best experience I have had with this kind of work.

Thanks WindowWorks and Jones family for the recommendation. I read this site before choosing who to get quotes from and I have to say THANK GOD I did!! We got prices from Feldco , Champion, and WindowWorks all of whom are very well known in the area. Window Works offered us the best value and price and they installed within 4 weeks of order when everyone else was 2 months for my exterior color. Their window was definitely stronger than the others they treated us with the most respect. No BS Sales crap like te oter two. Thansks for the help Cost Helper.

Did it myself after looking at DIY videos on the internet. Started with one window just to try it out. Surprised how easy it was. Simonton makes a fantastic window - very tight and with a solid feel. $4500 was the total cost - and I'll be getting a $1,350 tax credit on top of that. So, a net of $3150

These guys were the greatest! The salesman was on time, well dressed and positive. He shared a ton of information with us but wasn't pushy or slimey at all. We feel we got a great price and he was the only one out of 5 reps to actually bring in a window and he did a great demo on it. My husband and I were both just laughing and enjoying it! Everyone we worked with was pleasant and helpful and the installers actually vaccuumed when they were done. I recommend Universal Windows Direct to everyone I know!

poor installation, no chims under large windows leading to sagging within a year. They simply covered existiting wood rot, without bringing the condition to the homeowners attention, and giving him the opportunity to have the rotten wood repaired. Found this out after another company came in to repair castlerock's work. Very poor wrapping of alluminum vinyl around brick mold of window, covering most window weepholes and leaving many sharp protruding edges. Interior window woodwork marred terribly with removal of old windows. They shatterd some windows when removing them. they do not wear safty glasses, who would have been responsible for and injury to them? Workman's truck left huge oil stain in driveway. You never park in the residential drive!!! Salesman abrupt, unreliable, change what they say with each phone call. Salesmen and managers change monthly, high turnover!!!! Check out Window World, I wish we had gone with them, I have since seen their work, looks great!

We had Window Works of Illinois (sister companyof HomeWerks) out for an estimate and their representative was by far the most knowledgeable out of all other companies we interviewed. He quoted us a fair price with the promotion that was currently being run. We bought our windows for a little over 400 each but that came with Low-e , Argon , and KRYPTON blend which from my research is much better than argon. These guys sent out professional installers and the job was done the first day and CLEAN. I recommend them to anyone, and by the way, the next closest price with Krypton was over 7000. Call them 708-633-8600. It will be worth it.

My business mainly consists of home rennovation; windows, doors, siding, roofing...those types of things. I started a job this week where the homeowners wanted 9 windows replaced in their basement. Thing was, the existing were mounted into the masonry block, so I had to frame the openings out with 2x8's. I charged this couple $250 a window for everything. Taking old window out and disposal, framing, install, insulation, and aluminum wrap on exterior. The pricing on some of these posts are ridiculous! If you reside in Pennsylvania and want replacement windows, email me! I'll give you a free quote and guarantee (in writing) I'll beat any other competitors pricing.

Our salesman Rob was great with the entire presentation, and even showed up during the installation to make sure the project was going well. At about 545.00 per window, clear choice offered us high quality at the best price. our other estimates for window with similar R values were at or over 1000.00 per window.
