Hired Jose to complete a fabric patio cover installation. He was awesome!! Came to the house to review the job, gave me a reasonable quote, and completed the job the following week. His work was excellent and quick, and although we were short material to complete, he offered to return when we get the additional material to finish up the job. Thank you so much for the excellent experience!!

Juan was extremely accommodating to my request for a window A/C installation. He was able to come see the space the same day to assess the window measurements and even went to the store to buy the unit for me. Installation took under 2 hours and it's an excellent job! He made sure to leave my place clean too. I'm extremely happy with my new unit and Juan's service.

Robert arrived on time was professional and courteous. He installed new door levers throughout my home and re-caulked my sliding glass doors. Robert was very efficient and neat and I am very happy with the outcome. I'd definitely use him again on future projects and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

So pleased! Eddie's Professional Painting was the first to respond to my ad. I called, we talked, and I hired on Friday. As planned, Mario showed up at 8 a.m. on Sunday and was finished in approx. 7 hours. Mario worked straight through - I don't think he even took a break. His painting was excellent -- and we're talking wood trim around 9 windows and a large patio door, as well as painting repaired stucco adjacent to the trim (different color). I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Thank you very much -- and thanks to Thumbtack as well! Elaine Burroughs

I hired John for a door installation, he was prompt, punctual, and professional! The door hangs perfectly, I could not be happier with his work! If I had to have another door installed, I guarantee I would hire him again!

DM painting saved the day! Managing a water restoration project from 400 miles away, I discovered there was a fair amount of drywall to be done at 3 pm on a Tuesday afternoon that would stall our flooring install the next day. Went on thumbtack, and had DM out there that same night. Got the job done and did a great job. Donaldo is reliable, conscientious, and hardworking. Two thumbs up!!! Thanks so much!!!!

Hugh is a true expert. He is very affordable and really cares about doing the job right. We needed two walls repaired and painted for tv mount damage and when he was done you could not tell that there was ever a tv there. He also repaired some wall damage from our baby gates and did an excellent job with that. So far I've had great experiences finding professionals on thumbtack. You won't be disapointed with Hugh's work!

John just completed bifold closet door installation in the baby's room, as well as 11 interior door installation across the house. I was very impressed with John's quality of work. He was always on time every morning, efficient, and really knows his skill. John removed old interior doors, installed/painted new doors, installed new hardware and trim. For bifold closet door installation - he built out part of the wall to make doors fit. I feel like to have found John on Thumbtack and will be recommending John to friends and family!

Francisco was great! We are Contractors that work with many trades in the remodel industry and we have to say he made our job easier, which is always appreciated in this industry. Francisco was responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, and did a great job on the window repair and new screen sliders. We hope to use him again in the future. Thank you Francisco!

I ordered 2 windows that were damaged on a fire, the windows are beautiful , from the day I signed the contract they told me was going to take 2 weeks and it took 2 months to get them and when they were ready to install they had the wrong windows so was postponed for 5 more days ( the maker company is in another state). Once they had the right windows,it only took less than hour to install them., they did a good job not messy. Everything was fine except the turn around time. I'll give 4.5 stars:)

The process was very smooth. A sales rep came to our home and gave us a full inspection and estimate for our windows. He went over all of our options and pricing. We signed a contract and within one week we had an installer at our home remeasuring our windows and ordering them. Our windows were installed 3 weeks later all in one day and they look absolutely beautiful. I couldn't be happier!

Martin and his crew did great work for us. They were professional and friendly. We originally had them give us a bid just to remove popcorn ceiling and repair some drywall, but we ended up hiring them to do lots more work - everything from installing can lighting with new electrical lines to installing new vinyl windows.

We just wrapped up the fence project for our house which was massive. Dick followed my concept and made revisions whenever i required. It was fun and easy to work with him. There's always a 2 way mindset. It turned out excellent, including the trellis and pergola. The 2 small gates out front to give us security was installed and my overall look is splendid to view! Would recommend Dick to anyone having a home project. He delivers!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you replace a window?

You may want to replace a window if the glass has been damaged, you’re remodeling a room, or you want to upgrade your energy efficiency as well as your style by getting rid of those drafty single panes that are losing you money. When replacing a window, you can remove and replace the entire window down to the house frame. This method is best if the existing frame is damaged or deteriorating, but requires construction skills and know-how and will take more time and money. An easier and less expensive option is to install an insert replacement window into the existing frame. Insert replacements are only an option if your window frame is in good condition without rot or damage.

When replacing an entire window, first you’ll carefully remove the existing window with a pry bar and other tools. Next, you’ll make any repairs and adjustments needed to the existing frame or header and studs to ensure that the space is perfectly plumb and square, so the new window will sit perfectly within the space. Next, install the new window from the exterior, securing it into place. You’ll need to precisely wrap and insulate the window to ensure it doesn’t leak. Then, install the interior casing and exterior trim (as needed). If you prefer to hire a professional to install a window, consider replacing more than one window at a time, as the pro can work more efficiently.

How much would it cost to put in new windows?

The cost to replace a window can vary depending on factors such as window size, type of glass, brand of window, necessary trim repair, and any construction work required for installation. Labor rates and cost to do business in your region will also affect the cost. The national average window installation cost is $2,650 per project. Here are some examples of average trim repair and window replacement costs:

  • Trim repair:
    • Line and case a window frame with an MDF product: $400.
    • Line and case a window frame with raw hemlock wood: $500.
  • Approximate cost to install five windows at one time: $3,000.
  • Approximate cost to install one double-hung, energy-efficient 3-foot by 4-foot window: $500-$550.
    • For the same window size (3-foot by 4-foot) from a different manufacturer made with a specialty fiberglass exterior and all-wood interior, the cost could go up to $1,500.
    • Pricing can go as high as $5,000 for a bay or bow window with specialty glass and framing.
      • These examples include removal and disposal of old materials and window.

How much is a custom window?

Choosing custom windows will increase your window installation cost but will provide you with exactly what you want. The average national cost for window installation is $2,650. Your custom window costs will vary based on several factors. The first factor is the type of frame you want. The four most common types of frames are vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum and wood. Wood is typically the most expensive option, followed by aluminum. The type of glass you select will also affect cost. There are single-, double- and triple-pane windows. Most double- and triple-pane windows have gas sealed between the panes that act as insulation. Windows typically cost more the more energy-efficient they are, though this efficiency can save you money on utility bills in the long run. The type of glass used can also affect cost. There are different grades of glass — high-performance glass, low-e coated glass, and more — which all provide you with better insulation. In addition, the number of unified inches (window height x window width) you need will affect cost. The cost of custom windows will also be affected by installation cost and whether any repair or construction work is required to properly fit the new window.
