"I had an excellent experience with Conrad of Chicago Area Glass. He was extremely quick in responding to my inquiry - same day! - and he was able to come out within a few days to give me a free estimate. Other companies had wanted to charge me $75 to come out that "could be applied to the overall bill" if I selected them. Sniff. He sent me via email a detailed estimate later the same day he came to see the work and it was within the budget I had expected. The main reason I was looking for a contractor was to do reglaze the windows in the older section of my house. I had a couple problems that needed resolving that I could not explain and needed to be seen in person to understand. He understood exactly how my windows worked and explained to me why certain things were being experienced in my 50+ years old home. and what was needed to fix the problems. He suggested a solution to one problem that saved me significant money and also was able to offer a service to assist me with something I had not thought to ask about. He was helpful, courteous, punctual and considerate - he was clean and made a point of asking if I wanted him to take his shoes off to work in my house. He was good with the animals too - I have 3 dogs and he knew how to put up with them quite well. I have nothing but good things to say about Conrad and I highly recommend him for projects large and small!"

"I hired them do an outside Christmas light installation. It involved several trees, front of house and patio. I was to supply the lights, cords, timer etc. They were on time, on budget, and did a fantastic job. Those are things I pretty much expect from any service vendor. What made them extraordinary is that Brian and Rich patiently exchanged enumerable texts with me about the project which took a lot of time they didn't bill me for and was my fault. I waited too long to buy the lights and ran into trouble finding the type I wanted in the quantity the project required. I had checked several stores in my area but was unable to find everything. They came to do the installation but I was short on the lights and they couldn't do the windows. I told Brian I needed more time to find the lights, and that I would need them to come back to install them. Brian immediately volunteered to look for the lights and purchase them and to come back and install them. He got them later that evening and let me know he'd be back and would install them at no extra charge (just reimbursement for the lights). That was going way beyond my expectations and deserves acknowledgment. Throughout it all, both Brian and Rich were professional, friendly, good natured and polite. It was a pleasure dealing with them. I will use them for future projects and recommend them without any hesitation."

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.
