Replacement Windows Northern Ireland
Figuring out where to start when thinking about replacing your windows can be a difficult decision. There are so many different considerations that can affect the price and timescales, that it’s almost impossible to estimate without a home visit. So take it from a trusted window and door supplier with over 30 years experience that, whilst it’s convenient to do a lot of the leg work online, do not accept a quotation as accurate unless the window installer has visited your home and measured up properly!
As a rough estimate, installing double glazing with uPVC frames throughout an average 3 bedroom house in Northern Ireland will cost on average between £3,000 to £5,000, but there are many variables involved such as style, size and type of windows you’re looking for. Triple glazing windows can add around 30% to the cost but is definitely worth your consideration for the long time savings on energy bills.
The type of window frame you choose will have the biggest impact on the cost of your replacement windows Northern Ireland. So to help, we have put together some information below and on the pros and cons of each of the main replacement window options for you to think about.
uPVC windows are generally the lowest cost option but don’t let this fact make you think they are not a great choice for your home. As long as you make sure that your window installer is supplying high-quality uPVC frames, they are energy efficient and easy to maintain with an occasional wipe down being all that’s needed to keep them looking their best.
Timber frames are one of the most costly window refurbishment option but can add value to your home. They can provide a classic look to your home, especially if it is a period property. Timber frames come in either hardwood or softwood but do remember that they also require higher ongoing maintenance than uPVC or aluminium framed windows.
Aluminium frames are again more expensive than uPVC but do provide a long-lasting, durable and sleek looking window frame. They offer good energy efficiency and require less maintenance than timber. Aluminium frames can also be supplied in a range of colours so they remain consistent with the look and style of your home
