when it comes to that time where you have to seriously consider getting your windows replaced, there is no better option than UPVC casement windows when it comes to design, availability and price.
the prices of your replacement windows will depend very much on the size of the windows you want, and the number of windows you want to buy. Obviously, the bigger the window, the more it will cost. However, if you are ordering several windows at the same time, it could work out cheaper “per window”.
If you go for white UPVC then you will find the lowest prices. If you go for coloured or woodgrain UPVC then you can expect to pay a premium of between 10 to 20%
The thickness of the profiles will also affect the price. The window frames feature chambers inside, much like a honeycomb. More chambers, higher cost.
You also need to bear in mind the energy efficiency itself. The best rated, and most energy efficient UPVC Casement windows will be A++. You will find these at the top of the price range.
If you are thinking of going DIY then you are going to need a good level of relevant experience, and there could be some hidden costs that you may not have considered.
Sticking with DIY, buying the right size windows is very important (obviously), so make sure you know how to measure your replacements properly before you order them. Fitting them well is essential, you don’t want to end up leaks, or worse, windows that don’t open or close properly.
If you d fit them yourself, you will have to get the job certified by the local council and that will involve a visit from the local inspector and there is a cost involved.
You can avoid all the hassle by having your windows (and maybe a door or 2) supplied and fitted by local professionals – you will get great quality windows at reasonable prices backed with good guarantees.
