The stages of replacing your windows

2. Window material

Aluminium Windows

A contemporary choice, aluminium windows have a sleek design and are perfect for those who have beautiful vistas over the Lincolnshire Wolds. Their signature slim sightlines will not obstruct the view and you can enjoy the scenery all year round. Although the frames are slimmer, they are still incredibly strong and secure, which means this material is much more luxurious than uPVC. The average cost of aluminium windows is £900.00 However, specialist powder or anodized coatings, or marine finishes will cost an additional standard charge.

Our timber windows are available in hardwood and softwood and cost Circa £1000.00 per window.

3. Glazing type

Whilst double glazing remains the most common choice for UK homes, increasing numbers of homeowners across the Midlands are considering upgrading to ultra-efficient triple glazing instead. For more information, have a look at our blog.

Double glazing

Double glazing is an essential part of any modern home. Designed to enhance your home’s energy-efficiency, the space between the two glass panes is filled with Argon gas to decrease heat loss and create a warmer living space. Double glazing adds an additional standard charge to each window price.

Triple glazing 

For extra insulation and security, you may wish to opt for triple glazing. Lifestyle triple glazing is among the best in the industry today and is ideal for those who live along the East Midlands coastline; drastically reducing the effects of the chilly sea breeze! Triple glazing adds typically circa £80.00 onto each window price and, although triple glazing is more costly, you will see the savings in your energy bills!

4. The amount of windows

A frequently asked question is: ‘should I replace all the windows at once?’ Although the answer is not a simple yes or no, when it comes down to saving money, it is more cost-effective to have all your windows replaced at once rather than one at a time. Our qualified team of specialists can recommend the best option for you and give you a no-obligation quote based on your particular requirements!
