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.

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.

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 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.

Working with Discount Windows was such a great experience. They have delivered on everything they have promised and more. They actually had re-installed my curtains back after new windows installation was completed.

I had a window that wouldn't open and ended up needing to replace it. Jesse assessed the job and gave me all the measurements and detail for what I would need since it would be a special order window. He removed the old window (which was not an easy task) and installed the new one. Jesse was hardworking and the window looks great. I highly recommend his services and will call him for any future house repairs that I have.

Adam and Marcos replaced 5 basement windows on 4/15/2020. They did an excellent job installing the windows and the cleanup after the job was impressive. I would highly recommend them for quality of work at an affordable price. I have other projects I am planning in the future and they will be my first call when I'm ready.

Installation was terrible. Windows don't lock, took 6 weeks to get a screen that fall out, and still haven't fixed caulking. Unprofessional behavior and poor communication, very disrespectful to my house.

Garrett and company installed a basement egress window for me. Garrett was very responsive and worked with my schedule to get the job done quickly. It looks good from the outside and seems solidly installed. I was surprised that the interior portion around the window and the sill was left unfinished, but we never discussed it beforehand and given the very reasonable price he did the work for... it makes sense that it might not be a 'full finish' job. I'd definitely use them again if I need any more work that falls within their expertise.

Homestead Remodeling did an exceptional job on my rehab project. They installed an egress window and did some exterior soffit work as well. Very professional, quick turnaround time. I plan on bringing them more business in the future.

They installed the windows but did not caulk them properly. I called the company but Heater never returned my phone calls. When I got her on the line to see when they can come out and finish the job, she did not seem too happy. Finally they showed up 6 days later after giving me the run around and finished with my supervision. The windows seem to get more outside noise than the old ones, not what was promised. I was wrong thinking that a small company cares about customer service this days.
