Question DetailsAsked on 8/11/2014

My son broke a window. Single window about 12" X 12". How much to replace it?

I live in Cocoa. The window is in a old metal frame. I could use a referral.

Perhaps I could fix it my self?

Your Search the List category is Glass and Mirrors - the Speedy Glass type company that does home and auto glass replacement.


If the glass is held in with window putty (a doughy tan or white putty) or by a wood trim piece all around it pinching it in place, then you can probably fix it yourself for about $15 piece of glass at a glass replacement place or somehome improvement/lumberyards.


If the glass is multiple-pane, or encased in a metal frame, then not easy to do yourself, though in some situations with single-pane you could remove the glass mounting frame entirely, use larger glass, and install with window putty. Double or triple pane you need then to fabricate a new "glazing unit" for you - the glass layers all enclosed in the metal encasing unit.If you are going to pay for that, might as well have them put it in too.

Hi,

This is Leah B. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

Although we don't track going rates for various projects because this varies widely depending on market factors and location, members are encouraged to include how much a project cost in their reviews.

With that in mind, a good way to find out a general price range, login to your membership and search for Windows, and then look as the project cost associated with each review. The best way to get the most accurate information is to request multiple bids from several local contractors. As the price will vary with work site considerations and individual contractors' approaches, getting multiple estimates will help provide a clearer idea of what to expect in terms of pricing.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com.
