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 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.

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 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.

Our HOA required us to replace all seven window. After contacting a number of companies, we decided to go with The Window Source of DFW. Although, it took a little while for the windows to arrive, we couldn't be happier with our choice. Great quality of windows and very professional and detailed installers. Chris and Becca are great!We definitely recommend The Window Source.

Very happy with the window and door installs at my house. RDS was very responsive on questions I had and did a great job with installation and clean-up.

The entire process was a positive experience and very professional. We really didn't know how beautiful the new windows were until they were installed. Excited to test the windows out in the Texas heat. Bring on summer!

I was blown away by the professionalism and the the value of the work!  He kept me up to date on the ordering process of our windows and an installation date.  We had two big picture windows installed in our house and ProTex had them re-ordered due to the fact that they were not up to his standard of quality.  I appreciated this act seeing as most companies would go ahead with installation and move on to the next project. I cannot recommend Protex enough! They are the best in DFW!

Shannon got right back with me and measured my house for new windows and doors as soon as the weather allowed. She gave me 2 quotes and found a French Door on sale at a fabulous price. The turnaround time for delivery was exactly as she stated and Daryl and his crew did a fabulous job on the installation of 5 oversize windows, a standard window and the French Doors. He even pointed out a threshold problem my contractor had done that needed to be corrected or my back door was going to rot. She is now working with me on my own residence to update my original windows that have no insulation and has already been out to measure and give me a quote. Fantastic company to work with excellent installation. 5 Stars!!

Bruce, was great. He talked me through various options, and made me feel comfortable that I was making the right decision. The installation went well, the installers moved fast and started off very friendly, towards the end when it was time to check off on the project the installers got snappy maybe they were just ready to go. But the windows look great. Very smooth process overall.

RDS windows is the best of the best. I had them come out when I first started considering replacing my 50+ year old windows, and they helped me every step of the way. They answered any questions I had, worked with my budget, and did an incredible job on the installation. They made the entire process very easy and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Looks like I am not the only one who is enjoying getting some fresh air now that we have windows that actually open!!
Jhaidee N.
I absolutely LOVE my new windows!! They have a great quality and look amazing! After the installation was done, they called me right away to ensure I was happy with the work. I know sometimes we are a little hesitant of hiring contractors through Thumbtack due to some bad experiences we had, but they are a professional company that does quality work and makes sure the customer is satisfied. I will definitely contact them again.
