Working out the likely cost of windows can be a challenge as, in most cases, installation companies need to visit your home before they can provide a realistic quote. There are also lots of contributing factors that can affect the cost, such as the type of glazing, the frame materials, security features, and the complexity of the installation.

How much do new windows cost?
The frame material which you select for your new windows will have a big impact on the price you will pay. While each supplier’s prices will vary, here are some average prices based on research. These prices are for the supply and installation of a window but are intended as a representation only so you can see how much difference your choice of material could make to the price of a window.
The lowest cost option is usually UPVC, which also provides plenty of benefits for homeowners. For example, quality UPVC is durable and strong and only needs occasional cleaning to keep it in good condition. Beware of very cheap UPVC, however, as it is likely to be poor quality and may discolour and warp over time. Aluminium frames are more costly than UPVC but often offer better energy efficiency and durability. Both UPVC and aluminium are available in a wide range of colours and finishes.
Timber framed windows are the most expensive option, but some people prefer the look of authentic wood, particularly if their home is a period property. Timber frames require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition but can be painted or stained to change their colour.
