Got a quote from a guy today to replace two wood windows that are about 33x51 with two new construction windows that are 45x55. He explained about building a new frame and header etc.. He quoted me $350 for install per window plus materials. Is this high?

If he is a quality installer, I would say he is cutting himself very short on price.

Even if your siding is just wood or vinyl.

I'd have to agree with the above comments. I've seen some conflicting info in your posts across the various boards, so I want to be sure that im understanding the situation accurately. If you are talking about re- framing and finishing of an opening, that is not too far off from a " cut- in " which can run run $500 to $1000 plus. Your numbers of $150 to $200 should cover a standard install, but when you are enlarging the size of an opening, that takes a job from 1 to 2 hrs each, to half a day each or more depending on circumstances.

Nothing wrong with a range or "ballpark", put certainly a site inspection would be necessary for an accurate price.
