It is important to know that when replacing windows and doors, homeowners generally do not need to budget for costs to install windows and doors.
If you’re replacing windows, installation costs generally will be included in the total contract value of the double-glazing installed windows or doors.
Double Glazing costs vary depending on the type of property, i.e. detached or semi-detached houses. Average Installation costs of the contract value are generally between 15% – 25%
Other factors included in the total costs will be located and the number of double-glazed windows and doors being removed and installed.
The number of window fitters and fitter’s mates on site.
Most window installers will work as a team of window fitters and fitter mates.
Average costs for fitting team per day £300 – £500
Finishing trims for aluminium and timber windows and doors can be more expensive and specialised than uPVC.
Replacement timber windows and door installation can be more expensive depending on the complexity if we are removing old single-glazed wooden windows and there is any additional labour work included, i.e., Brick cut-outs or new lintels etc.
Additional costs people should budget for are lifting equipment or scaffolding if it is required for gable end windows or flats. These will be additional costs to factor into your planning.
Supply only windows and doors for an extension or new build could be a more cost-effective solution if the builder is installing them at part of the project that complies with building regulations.
