Hi. I'm in Atlanta.
I just received a quote for 6 double-hung windows. My living room window sizes are fairly large: five are 36x48, one window is 48x48.

My quote is from Dixie HomeCrafters. They are the 2nd largest company, w/offices in ATL, Charlotte (NC) , Memphis & Nashville, Asheville (NC), Greenville (SC), and Philadelphia.

The salesperson says their windows are made by Gorell. From looking at Gorell's website, I believe this window is most like Gorell's 5300 series (same features) but upgraded with Triple Panes, easy-clean coating.

They first quoted me $6000 (everything/installed).
Then they "knocked it down" to $4000. That means i'd be paying $650+ each window, although they are large ones.

I understand that there are many variables in pricing custom installed windows.

What I'm looking for is a ballpark range, a statement to give me an idea what I'm looking at. For instance "low-quality custom replacement windows, average size, installed, should run no more than $300 each" or "if you are paying above $600 per window you better be getting top of the line on all features"

I don't need the Cadillac of windows, but I don't want the crappiest ones, either. I didn't intend on spending more than $400 a window, for a mid-range option, but after having 3 different demos and estimates, I am wondering if I was completely off base. Can anyone give me their thoughts on average pricing per window?

I'd also welcome any comments on Dixie Home Crafters or Gorell...?

Much appreciated!
Thanx

Did you ever get a reply?

I received a quote for both the Gorell 5100 and 5300. For a 36 x 73 window, the quotes were $554 and $628. Glass was AC Master double pane

This was very low pressure sales situation. The salesman spent 1 and a half hour going through the features, left me a pricing schedule, product lit, reference letters etc. Told me to call him back after I had a chance to review.

Looking at this Board, those prices sound rich. But the windows quoted in most posts are smaller than mine.

Would appreciate any advice...
