The cost of double glazing depends on a number of factors, including the style, window size, material, and number you’re having installed. Here at South Coast Home Improvements, we work hard to keep our prices affordable for all our customers. That’s why we offer 5 windows for the staggering price of £2,019! And that cost includes VAT and full installation.
What is Double Glazing?
Double glazing is one of the most popular glazing options in the UK. It works using two pieces of glass separated by a layer of argon gas. This single layer of gas between the window panes insulates your home. This helps keep it warm during the winter and cool during the summer.
Double-glazed windows are much more insulated than single glazing. Because of this, you’ll begin to see significant reductions in your energy bills. What’s more, the second layer of glass provides a noise barrier. This helps keep your home quiet, even if you live on the busiest of streets!
How Does Double Glazing Work?
Double glazing works effectively to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home all year round. Using two panels of glass separated by a layer of argon gas, double glazing prevents warm air from escaping. The second layer of glass acts as a noise barrier, preventing noise pollution in your home – helping you sleep soundly.
What Affects the Cost of Double Glazing?
There are many factors that can affect double glazing prices. It is important to know what these factors so you can expect to pay a certain amount. This will help you make the best decision for your home, your budget, and yourself.
Window Glass Types: the type of glass you choose for your windows will vary in cost, depending what you opt for. For example, if you want toughened glass installed, the average price of your glazing will increase.
The Window Frame Material: the material of your windows is perhaps the most significant cost factor. Therefore, it is one of the most important considerations you need to make. While UPVC windows are the most affordable option, there are alternatives such as timber or aluminium. However, these tend to be more expensive.
The Type of Window: perhaps the most popular window choice in the UK is UPVC casement window. These are the cheapest windows available. Whereas, sash windows tend to be the more expensive option.
Once you’ve thought about the different cost implications of double glazing, it is important to look at your budget. This will ensure you’re getting the right window for you that’s also not detrimental for your budget.
