Prices for replacement windows in Central Pennsylvania are all over the map. So we want to set the record straight for proper replacement window costs in the area. Here are the three tiers of replacement window pricing, so you can ensure you get the best value for your money:
Replacement windows for under $400 might seem like a steal… but the only one doing the “stealing” is the window company selling them.
Windows at these prices may look like they’re quality. But don’t be fooled. These are the windows rental-property managers of low-cost housing typically use when they want to scale back their budget. In other words, they’re cheap quality.
The money you don’t spend upfront will get eaten on the backend due to repairs, poor energy efficiency, and premature replacement.
One more thing: Companies that advertise $189 replacement windows are trying to get you to call them. The usual tactic is to advertise an extremely low price, then pull the “bait and switch” during the sales appointment. Those $189 windows you thought you were getting will be three to four times the price.
The $1,000+ range is reserved for wood windows built for a custom home. But paying this much for vinyl replacement windows in Central Pennsylvania? That’s absurd.
Sure, vinyl replacement windows in the $1,000 range will look great, perform well, and be very energy-efficient. But so will windows that are half the price!
The truth is, quality vinyl replacement windows don’t cost enough to manufacture to warrant such a steep price tag. Central Pennsylvania window companies charging this much for vinyl windows are price gouging — plain and simple.
The best vinyl replacement windows should cost between $449 and $699 (depending on the upgrades you choose). This price range will get you peak energy efficiency, performance, and aesthetics for your money.
This price also includes installation. If a Central Pennsylvania window company quotes you a price per window in this range, you can bet they’re honest and fair.
These reputable window companies also tend to provide lengthy — even lifetime — warranties on installation, product, or both. This gives you total peace of mind that your investment is protected.
Financing your replacement window project can help ensure you get exactly what you want for comfortable monthly payments.
Think of it this way: If your windows cost $8,000, which seems easier to swallow… shelling out the entire $8,000 at once or dividing the payments into manageable portions of $1,333 over six months (with no interest)? The answer is pretty easy.
