Renewal by Andersen (RBA) wants over $2500.00 per window!

Well, it's 2017 and Renewal by Anderson (RBA) just quoted me a little over $2500.00 per window installed! I have 65 x 39 (horizontal) slider windows and was quoted almost $23,000 dollars to replace 9 (nine!) identical ones in my ranch-style home! Granted, these were full-frame, wood-veneer inside and using their best quality glass but c'mon - the most expensive aluminum-clad windows I found from other manufacturers are about $800/each and if I went with fiberglass-clad I could get that down to about $300.00 each. To add a french-style patio door was another $5,000 so for about $28,000 I could have had the entire job done by RBA. Sorry, I get that these are good windows, but no way in h-e-double toothpick am I going to drop nearly thirty grand on 9 windows and a door.

Oh...and those quotes were AFTER they had taken 20% off and another 8% and another 3% if I ordered the same day as the presentation. The full (non-discounted) quote for these 9 windows and a patio door was $40,000!!

Anybody else find these prices ridiculous and if so, who did you wind up going with??

That is aggressive.

Do you have an inkling of what you want in terms of an aesthetic and performance?

I think it's really expensive. Is there a way to get a discount? I think it's too expensive.

I'm not sure what, if any, room they have in their pricing model.

They definitely sell the fibrex and RBA story, so they ask for a premium.
