We had Alside windows installed in Colorado Springs and spent $16K for 32 windows, most custom sized and some fixed, some double hung all had the mullions (sp)? Had the same company make windows for our house in VA and it was about $8K. We got HUGE tax credits from the feds and almost $1500 in rebates from the state of VA.
We've replaced windows in 3 of the 5 homes we have owned. Never regretted it!! My house is so much more energy efficient, quieter and more comfortable. Windows are easy to overlook, but when you consider how much of your walls are taken up by windows, you can appreciate the improvement immediately when you replace them.
Definitely shop around. If you don't need fancy wood inside/vinyl outside type of windows, you should be able get them fairly reasonably priced. Anderson and Pella windows are expensive, but if you don't need that level of custom styled windows, don't pay for them.
