    I was wondering if anyone here happens to be a carpenter and can replace a bay window for me at a customer's house in Cumming, GA. I shattered it with a rock with my lawnmower last week and need to get it fixed asap.

    Thought I'd see if anyone here could do it and wants the work before I schlep through the yellow pages. :deal

    Did you find someone? Do you need a carpenter or glass replacement?

    I have found a few guys but only one bothered to get back to me with a price... I wasn't expecting $1200 to replace a window. It was hard as hell to get someone to call me back. Still looking for more estimates today...

    I need a window replaced but a decent carpenter should be able to do it.

    Well, not knowing the details, whole windows are more expensive than glass replacement. I just had to replace some glass on a customers home under similar circumstances. I call a glass company. Even installed glass is expensive, but less than whole windows. They can replace single pane, insulated, low e, whatever.

    I would try to find a very local company, but if all else fails call The Glass Company in Woodstock. 678-494-4092. They will need some info to quote you. Dimensions, single, double etc.

    I used these guys to do my replacement.

    You may still have to do some caulking and painting.

    Good Luck!
