Double Glazing Prices
How are double glazing prices calculated
Before we look at how much new windows are going to cost we have to look at what makes up the final price. Below i have listed some of the main costs attributed with the installation of new windows. Not all of costs apply to all quoted but need to be considered. You may not agree with these costs but trust me they are all genuine cost associated with a successful double glazing company that wants to be around to service the 10 year guarantees they give with their windows.
The larger the window companys the more over heads it has to cover but usually have more buying power which brings the material costs down.
Also remember that prices include special offers such as 50% off, Buy one get on free, window scrapage schemes etc, these have to be paid for.
