High End Window Cost
High end windows use a high grade vinyl extrusion. Vinyl extrusions are a mix of roughly 85% pvc pellets and 15% additional materials (most with long, confusing names but for the most part they are basically heat stabilizers and pigments). The extrusion will use use a slightly thicker wall than a lower grade uPVC and create strength across the wall by creating multiple chambers. The chambers will have an aluminum or strong metal reinforcement (necessary in vinyl windows installed in hot climates) and use a foam fill for added strength and a bit more insulating properties.
High End Installation Costs
High end installation runs from $125 to $175 per opening and should include the full slate of installation steps - proper measuring, leveling, insulation, caulking and sealing, all necessary repair to jambs, sills, stops, bottom sill pan, and exterior capping or trim work. Simple inserts will only cost $60 - $90 for installation per opening, which will obviously bring this price way down below the $625. However, upgrades to a better low-e glass, better fills, certain frame finishes or color options, grids and/or screens will all bring the overall cost of the window itself up. This is one of the reasons why it's tough to pin down a price without knowing all of the project details.
