The manufacturer plays a very important role.  Germany has proven itself to be excellent in this respect. American companies are also trying to keep the brand and have learned how to make windows using European technologies, and yet those windows of are in the greatest demand. All of them have their undoubted advantages, depending on this choice the price fluctuates slightly.

To make it clearer what comes out at a cost here, let’s take a standard window:

There are various width options, including 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 feet. Additional heights of 18, 52, 54, and 62 inches can be added to the standard height range of 2 feet to 8 feet. Rough openings are given in whole numbers, and the actual window size is calculated by subtracting 1/2 inch from each rough opening size.

According to very approximate estimates, an economy class window of this size will cost about $450, a “standard” one will cost about $600, and an “elite” one will cost approximately $960.

Such a difference in prices is explained by the same different quality of window components: for example, in the “economy” class, profiles of the most inexpensive companies, fittings, glass are used – everything that can be saved on – hence the name “economy”. “Standard” and “Elite” prices are much higher, since the highest quality glass is used, the number of пдфыы сфьукфы can be increased if desired, and the heat and sound insulation of windows is an order of magnitude higher. Decorative delights – this is already in the category of “elites”.  

So, knowing the approximate cost of a window, you can calculate the number of windows in the apartment and get an approximate amount, to which do not forget to add the cost of delivery, as well as installation components (including the installation of window sills, ebbs, slopes). All this adds up to about 25 percent of the order value.

Thus, it is easy to calculate that the average price for installing plastic windows in a standard one-bedroom apartment will cost from about $1500 to $3000.

Approximately this amount should be guided in advance. And yet, in order to determine the cost more precisely, just call the plastic window installation company, their worker will come to you, who will carry out all the calculations.
