need advice on windows

My home was built in the 70's and has all dark stained interior wood, including the windows with wood grills. Need to update them to more efficient windows and really cant afford custom.
what is the best way to keep the integrity of the house and not put me in the poorhouse???

thank,
Carrie

Re: need advice on windows

If your windows are standard sizes that will be one thing that will help on cost. All of the major manufactures build windows that are vinyl or aluminum clad on the outside and wood on the inside that can be stained. They aren't as cheap however as an all vinyl window but one thing you may be able to do is just change a couple at a time especially if you are doing it yourself. Depending on the size you are probably looking at about $500 and up for a good aluminum and wood window. Hope this helps you out.
