Fiberglass windows are an excellent choice for replacement windows. They offer many of the same benefits as vinyl windows, but they don't have some of the drawbacks. Fiberglass windows are more durable than vinyl windows and they're also better at resisting UV rays. However, fiberglass windows can be more expensive than vinyl windows.
In Southern California, the average cost of a new window replacement ranges between $650 and $1,500. The actual price you’ll pay depends on a few factors. One major factor is the window type. For example, the average cost to install a storm window is $275, while installing a bay window could be over $3,000. Therefore, it’s challenging to get an estimate on the average cost without knowing the type of windows you’re looking to replace.

Vinyl – Vinyl is inexpensive, durable, and remarkably energy efficient to minimize thermal transfer.

If you're on a tight budget, replacing them one by one as they break down over time may be your best option – but make sure to keep these factors in mind when considering this route.
All of the color options from Milgard are neutral colors. The main reason for this is because the vinyl windows cannot be painted after they're installed. Painting them will void the warranty.
