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.

Do window installers work in the rain?

It is possible to install windows while it’s raining, and some professionals may perform the job in the rain. But keep in mind that if the rain is falling especially hard, it could cause moisture to enter the house. And, it’s not safe to work in strong winds or thunderstorms. Some technicians may also not install multi-story windows when it’s wet. Applying caulk can also become less effective if things are very wet.

How long does it take to install a window?

It can take less than an hour to install a new window in a house, and you might be able to install all your windows in less than a day. However, this is assuming ideal conditions and that the previous window is already removed. Factors that may add to this timeframe include larger or more complex windows like bay windows or sidelights, as well as windows being installed in hard-to-reach places.

How do I prepare my house for replacement windows?

To prepare your house for the installation of new replacement windows, start by clearing a path and the area around the window. Take down any window treatments like blinds or curtains, and cover your furniture to protect it from dust. And make sure the window replacement crew will have access to your house.

Before the window installation service arrives at your home, ask them if there are other preparation steps you should take.

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.

Reviews for Denver window installers

I got several quotes on windows and ended up going with Sloane. Anton was professional and gave us a ton of good insight into what to think about when installing windows. He also gave us a very fair price. Jana Sloane gave amazing customer service over the phone and promptly helped to manage the payment side of things. When they installed the windows, they installed four in about 3 hours. Super clean, very professional work. I will use them again when I install my other windows.

Ray did an excellent job fixing my windows. The original request was to fix just one of the window sash's. But he installed the second window sash anyways. they are very helpful, friendly and most of all, professionals.

I had all 3 of my windows replaced. I had Greg of HRTI give me an estimate in November and he maintained the same costs in March. That was a great start. An installer was at my house within the week to measure & order the windows. Today the windows were installed by Chad who was very knowledgeably & professional. He did a great job & showed me all the features. I would definitely recommend this company & the quality product they represent. Thank you Paula Garmatz

Phillip and his team were fantastic. They installed two new windows (where there was not a window before). They were extremely polite and professional. They did a wonderful job cleaning everything up afterwards too. I will be using them for all of my window and door needs moving forward. Thank you so much Phillip and team!

I had two egress windows installed. They did a great job and they finished the project with lightening speed. Most contractors quoted at least a four week lead time. With Beyond Boundaries, my two egress windows were installed the very next week. The cost was very reasonable compared to the other two quotes that I received. Very satisfied with the whole experience.

I would recommend Terry Marcovich with Smart Windows to anyone interested in reliable, cost-saving, and quality window work. Terry offered multiple solutions to replacing my attic windows (for ventilation, sun and harsh weather exposure challenges) - and the installer did a great job. I especially appreciated Terry's ongoing communication throughout the project. Thanks again Terry. Diane

Tony did a great job installing four new windows in my 1890 home. I told him the type of windows I wanted and he found them for me and ordered them. He was at my home when he said he would be and took great care in the installation! He covered furniture in the rooms being worked on and protected the interior of my home from debris. Clean up was great and I had nothing to clean afterwards! I highly recommend Royalty Construction for a great job and reasonable price. The windows look great and I am so glad I finally replaced the original windows. My home is quieter now and the windows will provide a warmer house this winter. And yes, both Tony and his helper wore masks the entire time. Thanks Tony!!

Working with Weathertite was the best decision I have made in all my years of remodeling houses. They completely transformed our home with their window installation. They replaced windows that no other company would even touch and did so with professionalism, timeliness, and quality. Our whole house is phenomenal and a new space after their work. They very much cared about their art and delivering high quality work. Everyone on their team was so fun and hard working. They completed the work in record time with perfection. I am astounded at the amazing work they did. To be clear... they took out curved glass blocks and created a curved wall of windows...the work was amazing!!

I spoke with Greg initially and had a good experience talking with him. He was very professional, curious and strait forward. He didn't try to oversell me something that I didn't need and was honest about pricing. Chad installed my windows and security door. He worked very hard and payed attention to detail. He also cleaned up and left the job site looking the way he left it. There was always good communication and good customer service. I highly recommend hiring HRTI.
