Window Types

HomeAdvisor is a website that allows people to find contractors in their area based on the exact project they need. When you log onto HomeAdvisor, you should know exactly what you want, since you’ll be asked detailed questions about your project. For example, on the home page, you can choose from a variety of home repair categories, including Windows & Doors. Once you select what you want, you’ll need to type in your zip code. After you type it in, you can choose from a variety of specific window-related options:

  • Window cleaning

  • Window repair

  • Hardware, locks, screens

  • Window protection

  • Window tinting

  • Window treatments

If you’re looking specifically for window repair, you’ll then be asked what kind of windows you have. Options include:

  • Storm windows

  • Egress windows

  • Stained or specialty glass

  • Skylight

  • Glass blocks

  • Standard windows

There are then more questions, like whether the windows are new or old, whether the project is urgent, and if you’re ready to hire or are still in the planning & budgeting stage. Finally, you’ll be asked when you want your request to be completed, and the fastest is within one week in non-emergency cases. For emergencies, you have the option to check off immediately or within 24 hours. You’ll be offered financing options/insurance coverage if necessary.

Pricing

There is no standard quote for window repair because HomeAdvisor matches you up with several different service providers. However, the site does give an average cost for both Windows & Door Contractors. The average is $775, with the low end starting gat $49 and the high end going all the way to $21,000. Obviously, the price will depend on the scope of your project, your location, and the contractor you choose.

Average Price for Window & Door Contractor
$775
Low end
$49
High end
$21,000

Once you agree to receive quotes, you’ll be shown a more specific range of what you can expect to pay, and this is extremely helpful. Below is an example of the average cost of basic glass window repair in New York, New York.

Since the average cost is calculated based on 10,000+ profiles, you’ll get a pretty good idea of what you can expect to pay.

Testimonials

“I have used their recommended contractors 3 times, and each time for home repairs or updates has been unequivocally without issue regarding the quality and price of the work completed. I continue to be amazed at the 100% perfect experience I have had with their recommended contractors.” - Michael of Martinsville, IN

“I can't believe how easy this works. I scheduled a couple of appointments through HomeAdvisor. HomeAdvisor followed up with reminders and even with confirming that the company reps showed up. I don't think that it couldn't have been any easier or worked out any better. Bravo!” - Jim of Sun City West, AZ

“This gutter project was my first time use of HomeAdvisor. The experience was great, the phone app is easy to use and the contractor I hired through HomeAdvisor did a great job. I will use the phone app again and I'm sure.” - David of Riverview, FL

Customer Service and Response Times

HomeAdvisor can be contacted via a toll-free phone number: 1-877-800-3177. There is also live chat available on weekdays from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm and on weekends from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. There is a FAQ page on the site so consumers can acquaint themselves with how it works before they request a quote.

Each contractor has his or her own customer support system in place. It is the responsibility of the consumer to be in touch with the contractor directly. However, all of the contractors on HomeAdvisor have gone through a strict screening process, and there are also reviews from verified users. If you are concerned about the customer service of a specific professional, read the reviews on the site.

Warranty

Though each contractor likely offers their own warranties, HomeAdvisor backs up all work procured through them with its own additional Happiness Guarantee, which means that if you’re not happy with the service you received, the HomeAdvisor team will intervene and correct the issue. The Happiness Guarantee addresses issues such as unsatisfactory or incomplete workmanship, damage, and other sources of dissatisfaction.

Energy Efficiency

Each contractor has his or her own energy star ratings. You can read reviews on the site or ask the contractor directly if this is something that’s important to you.

Other Services Offered

I heard of Home Advisor on a TV commercial but never had use for it. When I did need this kind of service, Home Advisor was the first product I used.

I wish I would have researched other options before I settled with Home Advisor foe this particular situation. They are such a big brand that its very impersonal and their customer service could be improved a bit.

They are the best in what they do, and it's bad if they're being tried.

I give Home Advisor 3 stars because first off, contacting them was very difficult. We had to wait about 3 days for them to come to my house to repair my windows. And they charge way too much which is why I'm probably never going to use them again.

Sometimes the software is not compatible with my technology and becomes an issue when using multiple different platforms to complete queries.

It is very easy to use and it comes with all that we expect it to come with.

It's comprehensive and easy-to-use, easy to find local contractors and compare prices.

Home advisor has good recommendations however I have found better information on other similar websites. For instance, they did not have enough ratings about a certain contractor who ended up being a swindler.
