The work he did was exceptional, I asked him to do several other projects while he was here, from building front stairs, attic door in ceiling, and a garage car port, there isn't anything he can't do. I've gotten so many complaints on the work he has done. Definently will be calling him back in the future, so lucky to have found him on (Home Advisors),,,, Thankyou Sue 4/9/20"

    "Victor responded quickly to my initial call. He communicated clearly and honestly about his availability to make the appointment (made an appointment over the phone for the next day, then called the next day when he finished his earlier appointment ahead of schedule and got to us an hour earlier than expected). He was also clear and honest about the cost involved in repairing a damaged window pane. He completed the work quickly -- removed the damaged pane, took it to the shop to repair it, and returned it within two and a half hours -- for the price quoted over the phone."

Boston Window Repair

Windows are aspects of your home that get a high level of use. That, coupled with the fact that they're full of moving parts and contain some fragile surfaces, make them a likely candidate for some sort of repair as the years roll by. Window repair can range from a busted crank on your casement window to a homerun ball hit through your bay window by a neighbor kid pretending he's with the Red Sox. The good news about window repair: there's almost always a reasonable solution to getting your window looking and working like new.

Types of Window Repair
Window repair can fall into so many different categories these days that it's tough to mention them all here. Primarily that's thanks to the fact that window manufacturers now put out such a wide range of different window styles and models that the number of potential problems has risen exponentially. Double hung, casement, bow, turn-tilt, slider, awning, hopper, and bay windows are just a small sampling of the different styles out there, each with its own list of potential repair issues that are specific to the design. The rise in window "extras," including double and triple glazing, low e-coatings, tinting, laminating, gas fill, and more, also make window repair more complicated than it used to be. In truth, while it used to be fairly easy to tackle a window repair on your own, inexperienced homeowners inexperienced are probably better off these days bringing in a pro to make sure the repair is done right.

Costs of Boston Window Repair
Unfortunately, bringing in a professional contractor to tackle your window repair costs money, and for most homeowners that means planning ahead so you can budget for the expense. How much is a window repair going to run in Boston? We can help in that department. HomeAdvisor tracks window repair jobs in Boston and by looking over our records, we can give you an idea of what you're in for. Here are some of the more common window repair needs and what the average price for them runs in Beantown.

  • Boston Window Repair: Glass—Perhaps the most common, frustrating, and pressing form of window repair is fixing broken glass. Fortunately, it's also one of the most reasonable. An average window glass repair in Boston runs about $280, based on the data we've collected. The type of window you have can have a big impact on that final cost, however, as our records show jobs that ended up costing as little as $50 and others that topped out at $500. Call a window repairman to get an estimate on your particular situation.

  • Boston Window Repair: Frames—Broken windows might top the list of common window repair in Boston, however problems with window frames don't fall too far behind. Frame repair can include everything from fixing poorly fitting windows caused by negligent installation to fixing faulty hinges, cranks, frame failures, and other issues. If your window frame is causing you fits, an average window repair of this sort runs in the neighborhood of $625 in Boston.

  • General Repair or Installation in Boston—This is the most generic category we track, and thus it encompasses a wide range of potential repairs. Repairs that fall into this category include, but aren't limited to, re-installing windows, upgrading windows, repairing poor installations, and installing completely new models. If your repair doesn't fit into the categories above, it likely is lumped into this bunch. A single window installation or repair averages $1,460 in Boston, though it can range from several hundred on up to several thousand if you choose to replace a damaged window with a cutting edge model. What if you decide it's time to upgrade or replace multiple windows? Predictably the price jumps accordingly, up to an average price of $5,700.

A Note to DIY'ers
We've already said our piece about how complicated modern window repair can get, and how valuable a knowledgeable window repairman or installer can be, so we'll leave that discussion at rest. If you're dead set on doing it yourself, however, make sure you know what you're getting into and do your homework so that you get the job done right. Poorly installed and repaired windows can lead to obvious problems such as sliding windows that don't slide and casement windows that don't close. And there's more hidden potential pitfalls as well. For example, replacing low e-coated glass with clear glass can significantly reduce your home's energy efficiency, as can installing an energy-efficient model but failing to seal the window properly, letting in drafts that negate any benefits such a window might offer. A hint: call in a window repairman/installer anyway to get an estimate and a little insight into what your specific repair is going to take. Most companies will come out and give you a bid free of cost, and you'll be able to pick the brain of an expert in the field as you haggle over potential prices.
