The lockdown has been a major catalyst for people’s desire to make a change. With everyone spending more time at home this past year, it has allowed homeowners time to make those home improvements they may have been putting off. Being in our homes more often has also helped homeowners realise there may be improvements that need to be made; whether that’s to make their home more comfortable and pleasant to live in, to increase the value, or both!

If you’re looking for an effective way to upgrade your South Yorkshire property, replacement windows from Global are guaranteed to improve the appearance and value of your home. Once a decision has been made to take the route of installing new windows, it can be frustrating to discover the majority of double-glazing specialists out there don’t generally put a specific price on UK window cost. Allow us to explain why.

Window cost: material choice

The cost of new windows is largely influenced by the type of material they’re made from. There are three main choices of window material to consider:

uPVC: uPVC is well-known as the most affordable window frame material thanks to it being relatively cheap to produce. Not only is uPVC the most affordable window material option, but it also comes with a multitude of very attractive benefits. uPVC is virtually maintenance-free, extremely energy efficient, and comes in a huge variety of colours and finishes. You can even have wood effect uPVC windows! This unique option provides your uPVC window with a sense of tradition in making it appear like a timber window, but with the modern benefits of uPVC.

Aluminium: Aluminium is the second most affordable window frame material, which can add around 30%-50% to the price of new windows; depending on the window system that is used.

Timber: Wooden windows have the highest price tag due to the specialist installation process involved, their high energy efficiency, and long-lasting qualities, adding around 50%-100% to the cost.

Window cost: size

The size of your home and the number of windows needed are also crucial points to consider when getting a cost for your replacement windows. Generally speaking, the more windows you need installing, or the bigger the size of the windows, the more expensive the installation will be. If your home requires bespoke or made-to-measure windows, this will also add to the overall cost.

Aluminium casement windows

Window cost: style

Different window styles require different amounts of skill, time, and effort to install. For example, uPVC casement windows are quick, easy, and economical to install; making them one of the most popular affordable window styles in Britain. Our casement windows are designed to meet the requirements of any style of home. Whether you live in a modern new build property or an older, more traditional home; our casement windows are sure to complement your home’s design. We also offer a number of other window styles:

Our expert team will be able to give you a bespoke quote for whichever style window you like.

Windows cost: other factors to consider

Other factors that can affect the price of new windows include:

  • The type of building or area e.g. buildings located in conservation areas.
  • Additional features such as decorative Georgian Bars, or security upgrades such as key lockable handles, security brackets, opening restrictors, and night vents.
  • Colour/finish e.g. coloured uPVC frames/woodgrain effects.
  • Upgrading to triple glazing for further energy efficiency, thermal efficiency, and security.

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
