Windows come in all shapes and sizes let alone the fact that they are available in single, double and triple glazing. From the point of view of finish we are looking at soft wood, semi hardwood, hardwood, metal, uPvc and aluminium.

Overall I think we are pretty much spoilt for choice when it comes to fitting replacement windows.

With regard to providing immediate accurate costs for windows it would be pointless as prices change from week to week and also there are huge regional variances in prices. However, you can use the our price comparison tools to get comparison prices from up to four local providers.


WHICH TYPE OF WINDOWS SHOULD I FIT?

I think that overall the best type would be the most appropriate window style and finish for your property. A bargain set of windows is not going to be a bargain if it brings the Beautiful Double Glazingprice of the property down because they are not in keeping so the number one tip is to get windows that suit your property.

All new house being built - regardless of window design or finish - are coming to us double glazed so if you looking at replacing all of the windows on one elevation of the property you should certainly consider putting in double glazing.

Now don’t think you can’t have double glazing because you like traditional windows be they casement or sash because you can get new timber windows that have double glazed units fitted within the glazed areas.

Again, if you are getting timber windows try to get semi-hardwood or even hardwood if you can afford it as new softwood windows in exposed areas don’t last much longer than 10 years without some bit of rot.

Double glazing has become increasingly popular mainly because of the heat retention, sound insulation, improved security aspects and one of the big factors is that they require little or no maintenance other than a wipe over from time to time.

Timber windows on the other hand require repainting externally every 4/5 year which clearly is worth considering at the outset.

When choosing windows you have to bear in mind that there are double glazed window designs available to match all the main timber window designs in use within the UK. Just talk to your window installers if you’re trying to match up a particular unique design.

It might seem like I’m pushing double glazed windows here and I am but not became they are my first love when it comes to choosing windows. It’s more to do with the energy saving and reducing my energy use  thus reducing my carbon footprint.

Lastly, if you do go for timber windows you need to ensure that they are primed with the best products. A poor priming coat can remove several years off the life of a window particularly if the window is fitted on higher floors and exposed to the harsher elements.
