Tell me if I'm nuts to accept this proposal: eight vinyl replacement windows, double hung, grids top only, largest size is 36 x 48 (two of those), rest are average: 36 x 32 or so. Includes installation and trim. No reframing or sills. R10 glass. Quote was from Larmco Windows, live in central Ohio. Know nothing about windows, but I was thinking maybe half that for eight basic windows. Appreciate ALL opinions. Thanks, Kat (Oh yes, and this was with their buy two windows get one free deal!!!)

You should take a look at what Sears has to offer. Good quality windows and a reputation of standing behind what they sell. Not the lowest price, but who would brag about that. The quote you received is way high. E-mail me if your interested in seeing what Sears has to offer. Good luck!

Was that Champion by any chance??? I have an estimate from them too...try leaving out the buy two get one free deal, that only applies to "regularly priced" windows.

i live in RI. sears recently quoted me $8000 for two windows.

a 3' by 3' garden window = $3500!
a oversized bow windown ( 7' by 5' ) = $4500!

this is installed price for the least expensive Sears replacement windows after an allowance for a 15% discount and an extra discount "if i buy now"

ok maybe i can see the possiblilty of $4500 for the big bow window
but there is no way i could ever consider $3500 for a 3' x 3' garden window. isn't that nuts?

That is a big number for that garden window and the bow at 7ft x 5ft is not oversized if anything its a bit smaller then average.
