Garden Window Prices and Costs
October 11, 2010
Garden windows, perhaps more than any other kind of window, have a wide range of variables that contribute to the price. The reason is that many garden windows are created to fit your existing home, meaning that you may be paying a custom price rather than buying windows off the Internet. That's why it's vital for you to gather exact measurements to see whether a standard size is available. If dealing with window contractors, get at least three bids in writing that include your choice in materials, options (such as roofs or hardware), and installation cost.
Garden Windows Prices, Sizes, and Options
Based on September 2010 estimates, windows are priced by materials, complexity and style. Costs run from $800-$2,000 for a standard window set to as much as $2,500-$7,000 for larger, custom models. Installation can run from $1,500-$8,000, with the higher end reflecting modifications to your existing window size or exterior walls. Standard widths range from 3-1/2 to 10-1/2 feet.
Windows/ Price Range
- Standard windows, 48"W x 48"H/ aluminum, $1000; vinyl, $1,200
- Double-hung windows, 8' 7-13/16" W x 4' 10-1/4"/ $2,362
- Casement angled windows , 7' 3-7/8" W x 4' 6-5/16"/ $1,577
Costs and Add-on Options
Prices quoted above do NOT include grilles, screens, installation, taxes, or delivery. Your estimates should include three windows mulled at the factory, side windows that open for ventilation, locks (for opening windows), optional insect screens, and style options (standard, beveled glass, stained glass, or leaded glass).
Add another 10 percent for Low-E glass, 20 percent for tempered glass, and another $1,000-$3,000 for copper roofing/awning options. Remember, you may pay 50-100 percent more per window if your home requires structural modifications.
