Milgard is roughly midrange in cost - here is an article with "ranges" for you -


milgard window cost


As you can see, "price range" is meaningless without specifying exact sizes, energy efficiency ratings, number of panes, etc - Search the List under WIndows and Doors and select contractors to come give you bids. Because ofthe variety of window makes, energy ratings, etc I would start with a minimum energy rating and what material you want, then talk to contractors about options but do NOT get bids right off - talk to several, then make up a selection list of makes/models and features they can offer that meet your needs - then ask for firm bids. Otherwise you will be comparing apples and oranges. Had a friend ask me for help after spending $10,000 range replacing all their windows, because their house was freezing cold in winter and heavy icing on the inside - turned out other bids were $20,000 range so she took klow bid - which turned out to be metal frame single pane in insulated frame triple pane country.


So, you have to specify up front what product you want - by and material and manufacturer and energy rating at a minimum; or alternatively by specific make and model numbers. Soooo many homeowners (and architects) get plans for a job but ignore the specsifications, and are then upset by the final product because it does not match what their mental image of the product was - and of course the contrator either had a different image based on his experience, or provided the bare minimum to meet the plans and went cheapest materials he could because there was no specification.
