If you’re looking for a fool-proof way to upgrade your property’s appearance and value, a set of replacement windows has always been a popular option to pursue. Once a decision has been made to take the route of installing new windows, it can be fairly 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.

Windows cost vs material

First of all, the cost of new windows is largely influenced by the type of material they’re made from. uPVC is well-known as the most affordable window frame material, thanks to it being relatively cheap to produce. 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’s used of course. Then we come to the most expensive window material of the lot; timber. Wooden windows have a higher price tag mainly due to the specialist installation process involved, their high energy efficiency and long-lasting qualities, adding around 50%-100% to the cost. Hardwoods are also more expensive than softwoods because they grow more slowly, which makes them incredibly solid and extra-durable.

Windows cost vs size

The size of the building and the number of windows needed are also crucial points to consider. If your home requires made-to-measure windows, this will also add to the overall cost.

Windows cost vs style

Today’s home improvement market offers a wide range of window types and your choice can also affect the total overall cost. Different window styles require different amounts of skill, time and effort. For example, uPVC casement windows are quick, easy and economical to install; making them one of the most popular window styles in Britain.

Windows price vs other factors

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 e.g. decorative Georgian Bars
  • Colour/finish e.g. coloured uPVC frames/woodgrain effects
  • Upgrading to triple glazing

Don’t let Brexit cloud your judgement

Global Windows offer better full house discounts than most (if not all) local installers. And when you think about it, it’s clear that having more windows replaced will work out cheaper in the long run. However, there are still a minority of South Yorkshire homeowners out there who believe only replacing the windows that are in dire need of repair will keep their finances in check, in preparation for the uncertainty of Brexit. The only thing that’s certain here is that it makes absolutely no sense to take this stance! A whole house of new windows will not only add value and boost your kerb appeal, they will make your property stand out from the crowd too. Don’t forget that Sheffield and South Yorkshire have consistently bucked the trend of falling property prices that the South are currently suffering from, with Sheffield property prices alone rising more than £33,000 on average since 2008!

Brexit: A window of opportunity

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.
