Cost to put a rectangle window in the bathroom above the bath tub

Have a bathroom with no windows. To get some natural light, planning to install a rectangle window above the bath tub, or a porthole window. Window does not need to open and house has vinyl sidings. How much will it cost to add this window?

Depending on size of course, but for normal 2' range frosted bathroom window, probably around $500 give or take - up to $700-1000 for very high efficiency.

Note that is a poor place for a w3indow - not only do most people (buyers) not want a window in the shower/tub, even if frosted, becuase the profile still shows through - but it is also a condensation and mold issue, and in cold weather you can feel the cold air pouring off it.

A more common solution, though the condensation/mold issue still applies to some extent, is a light tube - a small diameter opening to a round skylight in the roof.

Or accent lighting outside the shower//tub but pointing into it or bounding off the ceiling into it - my recommendation over putting a window in a tub or shower..

Window contractors would be your Search the List cateogry for this - or some Roofing contractors for light tubes.
