Bay Window Cost Calculator

We live in the Pittsburgh, PA area and are getting quotes from a few local companies on replacing a 27 year old Kensington bay window. Approx 92 x 44". The old bay has casement flankers with colonial muntins and full screens.

We used your Replacement Window Cost Calculator which gave us prices of $1630 (vinyl frame), and $1770 (wood frame). The three estimates we received so far range from $8000 (Andersen), to $4600 (Polaris), to $4200 (Alside) to replace the bay. We did get a price of $1855, but that was to install a picture window with 2 casement flankers with colonial muntins in the flankers only. So far, haven't found anyone near the Calculator prices.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bob, the calculator takes perhaps 6 pieces of generic information and gives a ballpark price. However, a particular project, especially a bay window, has more like 20 different factors that influence the price. For instance, the size of a window or a bay will have a huge affect on the individual cost, but it's too tedious to put into a calculator and just doesn't make sense for the average user.

Bay windows often require lots of work to remove the existing window, repair the wood and frame to get it ready for the new bay window. So I do apologize that the calculator was off in your case.

The estimates are going to give you a MUCH better idea of what the fair market value is. Andersen is always going to be at the high end and I would throw this one out unless you have to have wood, but it sounds like it's way out of your price range.

Polaris makes a very nice window and this is probably the mid range of the cost spectrum. I'm not a big fan of Alside so I would throw that one out if I were you.

I would suggest a couple more bids from local companies that sell Simonton, Vinylmax, or Wincore -- these are three mid range window manufacturers who sell a quality product at a fair price point.
