Fitting uPVC Sash Windows
The best time of the year to look at replacing your old windows with modern energy efficient double glazing windows is when they are most likely to give you them most benefit. In the opinion of many, this would be when the British weather is at its worst during the winter months when double glazing prices are at their lowest.
There may also be a ‘hidden benefit’ of looking to replace your windows in the winter and that is because not many people do so – lots of homeowners wait until the season get warmer and that means lots of installers are searching very hard for the few customers that are out there in the winter.
You could be surprised at what a good bargain you can negotiate when supply is plentiful but demand is low!
Lower Average Prices for Double Glazed Tilt & Turn Sash Windows
Well that is a very difficult question to answer because averages are simply a rough guide and any given figure for the average cost of double glazing UK for something like “compare glazing prices” is, by its very nature, a number which is neither high nor low – it’s in the middle.
The figure you get is also unreliable when you are actually planning to install double glazed windows in the immediate future. It’s OK to use this Average cost per Window in order to spark your interest in getting the work done initially but don’t base your final decision on an average.
You should get a personalised written quotation from a reliable company, in fact at least 3 quotes to start with, it won’t cost you anything as the double glazing installers will come around and carry out a survey for free. However, it will give you a precise measure for the cost of installing double glazed windows for your own home – not an ‘average cost of double glazing’
Cost of cheap Sash Windows
Consumers are very keen to find the best double glazed sash windows prices guide and this is to be understood, but they should not jump at the first sign of a good deal – act in haste, repent at leisure.
The best way to get an idea of the market price for your double glazed windows is to have several written quotes from different contractors via a site like www.doubleglazingpriceguide.org.uk who are properly certified by UK trade bodies such as CERTASS, FENSA or GGF, and the reasons f or this are twofold.
Firstly, without a set of prices to compare, you won’t know whether the single price you have is good value for money and any certified installer will give you the cost of fully fitted double glazing in writing.
Secondly, not using a certified company is probably tasking a risk on the quality of both workmanship and products, because if they have not chosen to register it means they are reticent of if they can’t register it means that they do not meet minimum standards of competence – either way it’s not a good sign.
