Cost for Window upgrades Reasonable?

Cost for Window upgrades Reasonable?

1. For acoustic rated windows, sliding windows are not a good option. Awnings or casement windows are recommended. 2. Builders always have excessive margins for upgraded items.

Stain grade is real timber. Paint grade is MDF. Stronger? I would say if they are solid then similar. Of course, real timber stained looks better
