With winter on the way, the weather sure has gotten blustery fast here in Chicago. If you have older windows in your home, then you’re probably always shivering. Your old windows create a draftiness that you just can’t shake.
You’re thinking the solution is new windows for the winter, and you’ve had your eye on Marvin windows specifically. You know these are an expensive home addition, but they’re also some of the best windows around. Just how much will you spend to get Marvin windows installed in your home? Keep reading, as we’re about to tell you.
How Much Do Marvin Windows Cost?
Should you choose to go forward with your window renovation project, you’re undoubtedly going to be curious about how much the job will cost. Prices can vary depending on the style and size of window you choose, but here’s a general range of what to expect:
- Double-hung windows that are 36 inches by 50 inches: $900-$1300 each
- Single Casement Windows that are 30 inches by 60 inches: $1,000-$1,500 each
- Sliding Patio Doors that are 71 inches by 79 inches: $3,000-$5,000
- Bay window unit measuring 76 inches by 49 inches: $5,000-$7,000
The above prices do include installation costs. If you wanted some prices for Marvin windows without installation, then you might pay between $400 and $500 for Marvin Integrity windows that are 36 inches by 72 inches. The brand’s energy-efficient double-hung windows cost $500 each before you include installation. The wooden casement windows add up to about $700 on their own.
These are pricing examples, but they’re not necessarily gospel. For your own project, we recommend you go through Marvin or a window installation company that sells Marvin windows. Get a direct quote from them. The quote may include the cost of installation or it may exclude it, but you want to know either way.
Which Factors Influence the Cost of New Marvin Windows?
If you’re curious how Marvin prices their windows, here are some factors that go into how much you might pay for your home reno project.
The Marvin brand is one of the top names in windows, if not the most recognizable out there. When you buy their brand-name windows, you can ensure you’re getting some of the highest quality around. Their windows don’t come cheap for this very reason. If you have a smaller budget for your window project, then it may be better to consider another brand, as Marvin prices trend higher.
Marvin produces windows in a nearly endless slew of styles, such as:
- Hopper and tilt turn windows that either tilt or swing open
- Specialty shaped windows for a home’s exterior or interior, including triangles, trapezoids, polygons, and more
- Sliding interior or exterior windows with stationary and operating sashes that let these windows glide open
- Single-hung windows with one top sash that’s set in a fixed position
- Picture windows, including those with venting and narrow frames
- Double-hung windows, which have sashes you can adjust vertically
- Corner windows for the exterior or interior, which tuck in neatly without hogging up valuable wall space
- Casement windows with single-hinged sashes that can swing out or in depending on how you move the crank
- Bow and bay windows, with the latter including at least three angled windows and the former boasting curved windows (at least four)
If by any chance you don’t love all the window styles offered by Marvin, that’s okay. The brand gives you the chance to customize most of its windows. For example, if you want a unique specialty shaped window in a different shape than what’s available, you can get in touch with the Marvin team to design a window that suits your home better. Given the pricing of their pre-sized windows, you’d have to expect that customized windows would cost you considerably more. We can’t state a price, as it would surely vary by project, but expect it to be high.
As we said before, sometimes the cost of installation is factored into your Marvin window price, but not always. You definitely want to confirm with the window company whether you have to pay extra to get your windows put in.
We’ve written about it on this blog before, but the process of removing old windows and installing new ones can be time-consuming and intensive. It’s also messy, although any good installation team will attempt to minimize how much debris gets left behind. They do this by passing removed window frames and panes through the open window hole, keeping most of it outdoors.
With winter here before you know it, if you’re thinking of getting Marvin windows installed, now is a good time to do it. You still have a few weeks before the coldest seasons of the year begins, which is when you’ll really need the superior energy efficiency and insulation Marvin windows can provide.
You do want to make sure you’re financially prepared for the cost of your new windows. While the prices in this article act as a good guideline to follow, you should always request a quote for your new Marvin windows. Keep in mind that this quote may factor in expenses like the style of window, whether it’s customized, the removal of old windows, installing new ones, and the Marvin brand name recognition.
You really can’t go wrong with Marvin windows, as they beautify any home. We recommend taking your time and choosing windows that not only complement your home’s style, but your budget as well. Good luck!
