"I wanted a small local business which depends on reputation and personal pride rather than full scale media advertising. I finally gathered the courage and put in a request on Thumbtack with which I have had some success. As soon as I had closed the Thumbtack window, I had an email message from Tom Bolda of Xpert Glass requesting a chance to quote the job. I took some deep breaths and called. Tom wanted to come out right away. I said it was getting on to dinner time, but he said it wouldn't take long. I said, "Not three hours?" He laughed and said, "No way." Tom arrived a short time later, and after a few pleasantries, I showed him the windows I wanted replaced, and he took measurements, did some figuring and gave me a quote which was in the ball park of what research said I should be paying for nine windows. He also told me of a company promotion for triple pane windows with an additional price so modest compared to the industry standards that I consented. We then went out to his truck and I was shown samples of the windows. Tom was so enthusiastic and confident of his product and work for which I got a lifetime transferable warranty that I signed the contract and gave a deposit. The whole visit took about forty-five minutes. Three weeks later Jasmin and Joe came with the windows. They worked diligently and professionally. These two master craftsmen had all nine windows expertly installed and the old windows carted away in less than four hours. They left a beautiful job. I did find aluminum trim snippets scattered around the outside. They are probably harmless, but I pick them up anyway when I see them. Jasmin informed me because of the energy ratings, I could apply for a Consumers Energy rebate of which I was unaware, and for which I successfully did apply. During the process of applying I did some research on the Alside Mezzo windows I bought. The Mezzo line got all brilliant reviews, but Alside triple pane windows' reviews were pretty dismal. The Mezzo triple pane windows were too recent to have been reviewed, so, hopefully, the Mezzo standard of excellence will have created a triple pane of which Alside can be proud. On the Alside website there is a hint the triple pane will better reduce noise, but research I have done says the noise reduction of double and triple panes is about the same. If triple panes are bought, it should only be because of the energy savings. So the ordeal I had long dreaded was handled as painlessly and expertly as possible. Glass Xpert was just what the therapist ordered, and I would recommend them to everyone."

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.

How much is commercial window cleaning?

The national average cost to clean windows is $120-$170. Typically, window washing for commercial spaces costs less per window than residential window washing, but has a higher overall price because the greater number of windows. Commercial window cleaning companies may charge a standard rate per window — for example, $3 to clean the exterior only, with a higher rate of $4 or $5 to also clean the interior. There may be an additional charge, such as an extra $1 per window, for scrubbing off water stains or deep-cleaning window tracks. Double-hung windows require more labor and will therefore cost more to clean. Companies may charge a flat rate, such as $8 per double-hung window or $9 per French door, to account for the added work. Building height will play a factor in window washing costs. Standard cleaning for one- and two-story buildings will typically stay within the same range, but cleaning high-rise windows may entail special safety permits and equipment, which would increase costs. Your location will also affect window washing costs. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost to do business will have lower window cleaning rates than large cities.
