Whole House Window Replacement Cost Considerations

whole-house-window-replacement-cost

Replacing the windows in your whole property can be a costly home improvement. The process can be a little worrying when you don’t know where you stand with what product will add value, and what is simply not needed.

It’s never going to come cheap, but it is highly worthwhile if you want to safeguard the future of your home against rising energy costs or better-equip your home for a quick sale.

The first step to getting the most value back from the extraordinary home transformation, is taking a look at just what is going to impact the cost of replacing the windows of your whole property.

What Makes the Cost of New Windows Change?

Your home is unique, and your decisions over the type of window you want, the style, and additions, are not going to be the same as the next person. This all influences the whole house window replacement cost quite considerably.

When you factor in the cost of installation, adjustments, and additional fees for some parts of the project, like the removal of old window systems, its pretty difficult to put an exact figure on the cost of replacing all of your windows without a full examination of your home.

However, it is possible to look at where costs can be cut, where they are essential, and what is going to impact the cost the most.

The Installation Cost

The installation cost is a big part of replacing windows, and one that you don’t want to run any risks with.

It’s always important to find an experienced window installer, who is qualified and understands the exact requirements of the job.

Any Adjustments to your Windows

There is considerable variation between properties in the UK, meaning that there is considerable variation between the types of window. The type of windows you currently have, and the windows you want fitting, will influence the cost.

A replacement window that is the same size and design as your existing windows is likely going to cost a lot less than a bigger window with different requirements.

The Type of Frame

Alongside your choice of window type, your choice of frame material will also influence the cost. Materials vary from classic wooden frames, to modern advanced PVC frames.

A PVC frame is likely to be less expensive, and also easier to maintain in the long-run. Additional features, such as high-quality security locks and decorative elements, will also cost more.

The Type of Glazing

One of the biggest decisions that you’ll have to make about your new windows is the glazing. The premier choice is triple-glazing, a product designed to create a warm, safe, and comfortable home environment.

However, this can be more expensive than the less-effective alternative of double-glazing.

The Quality of the Windows

From the glazing to the frames, and even the fixtures and fittings, a high-quality window is going to set you back more money.

You may have to pay extra for additional energy-saving features, a customised design or colour, or stronger and more efficient glazing.

What Changes Can Add the Most Value?

When calculating the cost of a whole house window replacement project, its important to note which areas of the project are going to save you the most money in the long-run or improve the appearance of your home.

Both your window frame and glazing choice are going to determine how effective your new windows are going to be.

Choosing the Right Window Frame

Modern window frames, like those made from PVC, offer a stronger and more diverse frame for your windows. Going for a quality frame means that the frame is going to be long-lasting, saving you money in the long-run.

Advanced window frames also have added security to improve your home security, and energy-saving features to reduce heat loss. An aesthetically pleasing frame will also boost the kerb-appeal of your property, making it standout and improve your chances of attracting a buyer.

Investing in High-Quality Triple Glazing

Triple-glazing is a true value-adding product, perfect for increasing the warmth and comfort inside your home and giving you a more peaceful home environment.

The sound-proofing benefits of triple-glazing can also help with the sale of your home, as road noise can be a massive turn-off to potential buyers. Investing in triple-glazing will start saving you money on energy bills almost immediately, keeping that incredibly expensive heat inside your home.
