Every replacement window company in Minneapolis and St. Paul says they have the best prices. But simple math tells you that 99% of those claims can’t possibly be true.
To make matters worse—and more confusing—some companies will SHOW you what seems like a low price… but in reality is a price for an inferior product or a project that doesn’t include everything you need. And in some cases, a company doesn’t have a better price at all—they just tell you they do and hope you don’t shop around later and find out they were lying!
So how can you know if you are truly getting the best price? Learn as much as you can about the company to see how and why they set their prices where they do. Many times, you’ll find that a company actually sets their prices quite high to cover their overhead, sales commissions, advertising costs, and so on.
At Zen Windows, we don’t have that problem. We run an efficient, no-frills operation that allows us to sell the absolute best products and the absolute best prices.

While this sounds like a great deal, it’s actually the “too good to be true” price. Sub-$200 replacement windows are what industry insiders call “investment grade” windows… or in other words, windows typically used for cheap rental properties. These windows can LOOK high quality, but don’t be fooled—on a scale of 1 to 10, their energy efficiency and performance are a 2 or 3 at best.
