Entry Level Prices

There are hundreds of low end vinyl window manufacturers out there that churn out a low cost, low quality product. Most of them are junk that will not provide the sort of long term value that consumers should be looking for. There are some exceptions here, although they require really solid installation to insure okay energy efficiency. There are a ton of ways that manufacturers can cut corners -- thin extrusions, sloppy corner welds, low quality glass, poor seals and glazing techniques, inefficient spacers -- the list goes on for awhile.

Mid Range Prices

This mid range price point, from $375 to $550 fully installed is the range that will typically provide the most value for the consumer. Usually, manufacturers will use the same frame design and construction for both their mid range and premium models. What often distinguishes the two is some additional features and add ons for the premium model that won't come standard on the mid range. The mid range might not look quite as nice, but it will usually be a decent window at a fair price.
