"My experience with Oscar and his team from Xert was nothing short of pleasant. They are hard workers, listen, and willing to work with you and your project needs. My project consisted of finishing the tile floors which I started some time ago, relocating electrical and plumbing from garage to room, installing cabinets, installing a countertop, and installing baseboards and a door threshold. Along with that are the general things - drywall and patching etc. My personal background is in IT and I have an pretty decent exposure to automotive. But, in no way shape or form would I ever attempt to do any of this home stuff. The guys at Exert made home improvements fun as they were explaining what they were doing and why. I know how to find wall studs without the need of a stud finder or any tool now! We ran into a few unknown snags along the way but Xert was able to explain to me the issues and waited for my approval to move forward with the change. The changes implemented to overcome these issues were brilliant - I would have never thought the solutions were as legit as they were. At one point, it took me 2 hours to measure and make sense of what we were working with - i should have done this prior to xert showing up - but oscar knocked out the measurements in a matter of minutes! He explained the whole 5 minutes of measuring the entire way. Not only will Xert get work done for you, they are more than willing to teach you. I had a really good time with Oscar and the Xert team. They are xperts in what they do, knowledgeable, real, and most importantly they put an emphasis on the customer first. Their charges are extremely fair and affordable - if there is anything extra, they will let you know and not hide anything. I am definitely counting on them soon to knock out a few more tasks and have no second thoughts on highly recommending them to family and friends. As for bad reviews, everyone is different and will have different expectations. All homes are different and will have different results and methods to making a project successful. But, its your willingness to stay open and flexible which will make your experience unforgettable. Cheers, Team Exert! You guys have created and extremely happy home and we cant thank you enough!"

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.
