How to rough estimate cost of replacing windows/doors


Just for financial planning purposes, how would one roughly estimate the cost of replacing all of the windows, doors, and skylights in a home?

I'm trying to avoid getting full-blown estimates as this is just one of a number of projects I'm looking at doing.

Just trying to rough-estimate for re-fi purposes. Is there a rule-of-thumb?

Measure your current windows, make a list, and head to a home supply center and price them out.

How about the labor?

$1000/hole. This is as rough as it gets.

This is a DIY site. Go elsewhere if you're looking to get a quote on labor.

Your though processes don't compute. If you want cost, call in the people who do the work.
Everything else is self flagellation.

One will call contractors in to give them estimates.

No, there is no rule of thumb. Coming on the internet is not a place to get an estimate.
