CertainTeed MI Window Prices & Costs For Installation And Supply

Our CertainTeed MI Window Prices guide provides a thorough review of Prices & Costs for all MI window series.

The CertainTeed MI Window Company

It is best to now refer to these windows as MI windows. Here’s the story.

In 2008, CertainTeed partnered with MI Windows to make the CertainTeed brand and distribute it throughout North America. In 2016, MI Windows dropped the CertainTeed brand name from its products saying on the site, “While you will no longer find CertainTeed labels on our products, we have never stopped holding ourselves to delivering the high-quality, high-performing, trouble-free experience that one expects of a CertainTeed-branded product.”

The name CertainTeed comes from the original company slogan: “Quality made certain. Satisfaction guaranteed.” And MI seeks to live up to that heritage of making some of the best building materials in the world.

CertainTeed MI Window Prices

MI makes vinyl windows and aluminum windows. Both replacement windows and new construction windows are manufactured.

The brand doesn’t make wood, fiberglass or composite windows.

The MI CertainTeed windows lineup has been totally revised. Gone are place names like BrynMawr and New Castle, replaced with numerical series names. For example:

  • BrynMawr is now the 1600 Series
  • New Castle is now the 1500 Series
  • Devon is now part of the 1600 Series
  • New Bridge single-hung window is now the 4300
  • New Bridge sliding window is now the 3580

But that’s just the beginning. As you’ll see below, MI Windows makes a large range of windows, though not as many as Ply Gem. If you browse the MI windows and doors site, the window series aren’t differentiated as nicely as you’ll find on sites like Pella or Jeld Wen.

See the reviews of each of the MI Windows Series following the MI Window Prices table below.

Each series is available in a wide range of standard sizes to meet the requirements of most applications. Replacement windows can be ordered in custom sizes.

The window prices listed below are standard prices for the windows only. The prices do not reflect removal of old windows, installation costs, any optional extras you may choose, or specialty finishes available on some windows. To find the exact costs for your window project, get a quick free estimate without any obligation.

Price Disclaimer: Note that many window companies supply their products through third party retailers and so the prices shown below may vary greatly from retailer to retailer and contractor to contractor. There are also many other factors which can affect window installation / replacement. We therefore recommend you use our system to find a contractor in your local area, who can give you a free accurate and personalized quotation.

In the table, “New” means the window is suitable for new construction projects.

MI Window Prices for All Series

Like all window brands, MI window prices have increased by as much as 30% in the last few years due to increases in materials, manufacturing and labor.

New Construction vs Replacement Windows

MI makes both – some lines are specifically new construction and others replacement, but many of the lines feature windows designed for either.

In new homes and additions, the window frame has a nailing flange that is fastened to the outside of the home – the home’s sheathing – using screws or nails. The advantage is that the window takes up less of the opening, so you have more glass area for more natural light and a better view.

Replacement windows fit into the existing opening, so the siding on the home doesn’t have to be disturbed. The frame takes up a little more of the space, slightly reducing light and the view.

New construction windows are the obvious choice if you are building new or if you are doing a complete makeover of the outside of your home.
