Can vary a lot depending on how the windows have to fit in with the siding - especially if integral C or J channel so some siding has to be removed to fit it into the channels after the window is installed.


Also depends a lot on quality of installation - watched a Home Depot window installation in my neighborhood for a few minutes the other day - was taking two guys 7 minutes to install a window, but zero water shield in the opening, zero tie-in with the house wrap, zero caulk behind the integral brickmold - only tack-nailed in place with NO squaring up or making sure it was vertical, THEN placed a few shims, zero nailing through frames into studs, a few finish nails through brickmold into siding (with no nailhole patching), and a bead of caulk around the outside. You could probably get that type installation for same rough opening sized windows for $75-100/window on a multiple window job. For professional installation with full housewrap and water shield integration and proper alignment in opening should take a half hour or so prep for one man plus another half hour or so for two men for the install, alignment and trim (one inside, one outside) - cost more like $150-200 labor per normal sized window - 2-3 times that for large (over 6 feet or so) picture, multi-bay living room, and large bay or garden windows. Perhaps $50-75 more per window if have to remove siding around windows to fit into unitized or built-in channel.
