Our contrator recommended them over the StyleLine. We ended up buying them online which saved us several hundred dollars and had a local, licensed contractor install them. We got 3 bids for the install and one was ridiculously overpriced so we only had to decide between 2. At the end of the day we spent just under $10k for both the windows (which included a large patio door) and the installation. So far we're really happy with the work but we won't know how good he did until we get through at least 1 rainy season!</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Do yourself a favor and shop for the window online. We bought ours here: http://www.thewindowstore.com and check http://www.Craigslist.org for local contractors if you don't have any referrals from friends. Whatever you do, get multiple bids for both the windows and the labor. You'd be amazed at the difference in prices for the exact same stuff.</p> Thu, 04 Sep 2008 20:37:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ 2008-09-04T20:37:00Z I just replaced all of my ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ <p>I just replaced all of my window.&nbsp; Actually the&nbsp;last few are being installed right now.&nbsp; I went with Milgard style line with the Sun Max.&nbsp; We put in 2-8.0x5.0, 2-5.0x4.0, 2-5.0x3.0, 3-3.0x2.0, 1-6.0x3.0, 1-3.0x3.0, and 1-4.0x4.0.&nbsp; The cost was $2042 not installed.&nbsp; Shop around.&nbsp; I had bids as high as $2800 for the same windows without the extra sun max coating.&nbsp; I'm in Oregon.&nbsp; Good Luck.</p> Sat, 10 May 2008 00:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ 2008-05-10T00:22:00Z We got upper grade windows ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ <p>We got upper grade windows put in about 3 years ago.&nbsp; We had 25 windows replaced (most were not standard size).&nbsp; It cost 20K.&nbsp; The house is in MO by the way.&nbsp; But, I think that you could get a very good deal because most contractors are hurting for work.</p> Wed, 07 May 2008 07:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ 2008-05-07T07:08:00Z <link>http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/</link> <description><p><img src="http://bunkstrutts.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/300px-mrt-stained-glass.jpg"/></p></description> <pubDate>Tue, 06 May 2008 21:30:00 GMT</pubDate> <guid>http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/</guid> <dc:date>2008-05-06T21:30:00Z</dc:date> </item> <item> <title>Ok, just out of curiousity, ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-need-estimates-for-changing-windows/31283/ Ok, just out of curiousity, what kind of windows cost over 5K per ???
