I chose Brian at LoPrestis Services after vetting several vendors and considering other outside estimates and I am glad that I did! He replaced an ancient water heater that had a busted drain valve, making a standard replacement even more difficult, but he worked quickly and thoroughly to complete the removal and installation. He even offered to pick up the new water heater from Home Depot as a courtesy saving me time and money. The new heater works great! I strongly recommend choosing Brian for your project.

We had been getting bids for a couple weeks from different contractors to have almost all our windows replaced and the price gap between quotes were pretty disconcerting. Also, some other contractors told us we could not do this or that for some reason. Russ was our last bid before making a decision. We did not need to tell him our budget range. His bid was fair. We did not feel pressure with our decision to close the deal. He kept us updated along the way and checked in on us to make sure we were happy. We had other projects come up such as flooring, ceiling/wall repair and a new skylight and we are currently working with him to have completed. We also did a walk-through with him upon completion of the window project with some minor cosmetic issues and he is also resolving. He has really been helping us making this the house of our dreams and we feel very comfortable with him and trust his help and guidance. Thanks Russ!

Jose did an excellent job repairing and patching several areas in my home that had water damage. He was very meticulous and patient with resolving a "mysterious" leak in a bedroom window. He also installed a new vanity and painted the guest bathroom. I was very impressed with his wood working skills, dry wall repair and painting. The work was seamless; we will definitely use his services in the future.

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. After many failed attempts several contractors to repair a leaky roof, Jim and his team were able to immediately identify the source of the leak and repair the problem. Advantex is a company built on honesty, strong work ethic and superior craftsmanship! I would definitely recommend Jim and his team at Advantex for your project!

As a homeowner for the past twenty years - I’ve dealt with many contractors - many of them have been dishonest and over priced. Dwayne is far better than the rest. I hired him to redo the caulking in three of my bathrooms as I’m getting ready to sell my house. Dwayne went above and beyond the call of duty - not only did he repair the caulking but also helped me to identify repairs that needed to be done. He fixed my home within my budget. He was kind, considerate and very patient. I appreciated his work and honesty and will be hiring him for work in the future.

I had my whole house of Windows done by Turn - Key Remodeling. The project went great, we are so happy with the product and service we got. We had a Rep come in and the quote was very fair for the quality of the Andersen window that we wanted. Installation was a few weeks later, and the crew was very professional and clean. We plan to do more upgrades to our home, in the future, and we will be calling tkr.

Highly recommended..! It was a pleasure working with Joel. He made the entire project pain-free and worry-free. From the estimate, to the roof tear off, to the install, to the insulation and duct work, the job was done professionally and clean.

Jerry is very nice guy, and he came to me twice to discuss the window project. His price is very reasonable, and he ordered high quality windows. The window installation process was very smooth, and passed the village inspection without any problems. I would use Jerry or Remodel Rangers again.

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 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.

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.
