DIY for Fun -

Tell me, when the Chrysler PT Cruiser was new and in short supply with high demand, and SOME Chrysler dealers were charging several thousand dollars OVER the window sticker, was Chrysler at fault?

The point is: while some (repeat, SOME) window installations may actually require a lot of labor (hence a higher price), most do not and I'd venture to say that the majority aren't even close to $1K/window.

I had 19 Schuco windows put in my home this past fall by a truly competent installer who went out of his way to ensure that things were right and the cost was under 10K. Just because some folks might take advantage doesn't mean that others do nor that the manufacturer does. As far as REAL manufacturing cost is concerned, the salesman has NO control over that and is generally using the prices set by the distributor (independent agent) he's working for. I agree with you about when to run but I most definitely disagree about the manufacturer being the bad guy.
