Additionally, window replacement will help to lower your monthly energy bill! Here are a number of reasons why a window repair would be indicated, and how much you should expect to pay:

  • If your window has a wooden frame, and seems to be experiencing rot, it probably has not been painted correctly, or has been exposed to too much humidity. You can repair small parts of your frame for just $25. If the rot is bad enough you will need a new window, and can expect to pay $3,000 to $7,000.
  • If you have a broken windowpane due to storm damage, or thrown objects, you will need to replace the glass. This should cost roughly $3 to $14 per square foot. Additionally, you will need to compensate the handyman for their services, and replace the sash. Those costs will run $100 to $300, and $40 to $250 respectively.
  • Your windows may develop broken seals that lead to fog condensation. You will need to replace the pane and sash, which will cost about $40 to $250.
  • If your windows are having trouble opening or closing smoothly, you should use a putty knife to break the paint seal, then sand it down until it is smooth. A handyman will be able to take care of it for you for $50 to $270.
