Picture Sliding Window – Pricing and Installation Cost Checklist

  • Get at least 3-5 estimates before hiring a Picture Window contractor — estimates are typically free, unless it’s a service call for a repair.
  • Expect the Picture Window prices to fluctuate between various companies – each and every company have different operation expenses and over-head.
  • Try to get prices in late Fall, early winter – you should expect aggressive pricing discounts by waiting for a contractor’s down season.
  • Try to budget and additional 7-15% more on top of what our calculator gives out – I.e; difficult configurations, patterns, dormers, etc. The additional complexity of your window’s Frame, trim work will add to the Picture window costs.
  • Visit every supply house that sell your particular brand of Picture Window and try to negotiate a better price with each supplier – I save on average 20%.
  • Remember, there are multiple styled homes in the U.S – from: Contemporary, colonial, cape-cod style, ranch, bungalow, victorian, etc. So keep that in mind and try to budget a little more, before starting your Picture Window project.
