Window materials

When it's time to replace your windows, the material you choose is a crucial factor in determining the cost. For instance, basic uPVC windows can be purchased for £335, but other materials like timber and aluminium can cost around £3,600 for a single window. For those on a budget, uPVC windows are the most affordable option available on the market, whereas those with larger budgets may prefer modern aluminium windows for their exceptional security and style.

What affects the price of uPVC and aluminium windows?

uPVC Windows

At Premier Windows, we offer high-quality uPVC windows that not only provide exceptional performance but are also affordable. uPVC is one of the most affordable materials on the market because it is cheaper to manufacture compared to other materials like aluminium. However, certain factors like size, shape and colour can all affect the overall price of a new uPVC window, with non-standard colours or bespoke finishes increasing the costs. What’s more, uPVC is very robust and virtually maintenance-free, so uPVC windows offer an affordable fit-and-forget solution for most homes.

Aluminium Windows

Aluminium windows are more expensive to produce compared to uPVC windows due to the increased costs of materials and manufacturing. However, the higher cost is reflected by the superior visual and practical benefits offered by aluminium window frames. Factors that can affect the cost of aluminium windows include size, shape, colour and whether you opt for double or triple glazing.

Factors to consider when pricing up new windows:

Window Design - Elaborate designs, intricate detailing and customisations can all affect the price of new windows. Additional extras like Georgian bar detailing can all affect the overall cost.

Window Style and Size - Larger windows generally cost more than smaller windows due to the increased material and labour required for installation. Certain styles such as bay windows or custom shapes, may also come at a higher price.

Glazing Types and Features - When purchasing new windows, it's important to take into account the type of glass used as it can influence the price. Opting for additional features such as tinting, decorative patterns, or special coatings like low-E and argon-filled glass can enhance the overall performance of the windows, but may also affect the cost.

Other factors to consider:

Energy Efficiency - When choosing windows for your home, it's important to consider their energy efficiency. We offer uPVC windows with multi-chambered frames that helps to retain heat and save you money on rising energy costs. Our aluminium windows come with polyamide thermal breaks that keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Additionally, our Residence 9 windows have nine insulating chambers to preserve heat energy, resulting in the highest window energy ratings available on the market. In essence, windows that are more energy-efficient perform better, although this may affect their cost.

Security - Not all locking systems are the same, and you get what you pay for. Our uPVC and aluminium windows are all fitted with high performance multi-point locking systems for security so you can rest assured that your home is well protected.

Choosing a credible installer

Service- It is crucial to select a trustworthy and reputable installer when investing in new windows to ensure a professional installation. Opting for an unreliable installer may result in an unfair price, low-quality installation, and a lack of communication during the installation process. At Premier Windows, we take pride in our reliable service, exceptional customer service, quality installations, and fair and competitive pricing.

Guarantees-Look for a lengthy guarantee, both for the manufacture and the installation, as a sign of a quality product. Our windows come with a 10-year Insurance Backed Guarantee, which covers you should anything ever go wrong.

Aftercare service- Once your windows have been installed, the Premier Windows team are on hand to offer quality aftercare services. We'll provide you with helpful advice and guidance to ensure that you get the most out of your new windows.
