Have you recently bought an old house with windows that need replacing, or are you looking to upgrade your windows at home? Either way, buying new windows for your property is a challenge. They’re inevitably an investment, and many factors are affecting the prices of your new windows, such as styles and materials used. This makes finding the right windows at the best price rather tricky.
However, investing in good windows is worthwhile in the long term. High-performance windows can not only significantly improve the energy efficiency of your property but also increase its value, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
So, the question is: how do we reduce the cost of new windows whilst maximising the quality we'll be getting? We’re here to answer this question. Read on and we’ll show you how to slash the cost of new windows whilst making sure they're great additions to your home.
The average cost of new windows
Before looking into how we can lower the cost of new windows, let’s have a look at the average cost of new windows in the UK so that you can have a brief idea about how to set your budget. After doing some research, we’ve found out that a double glazed uPVC window with the dimensions of 60 x 90 cm has an average price range of £250-400. As for a double glazed timber window with the same dimensions, its average price range is £850-1,000.
The average cost of new windows also varies depending on the window type. A set of double casement windows with external frame dimensions of 100 x 100 cm has an average price of £500-550.
As you can see, the cost of new windows can put a huge strain on your wallet, especially when you’re looking to replace multiple windows at a time. But worry not – there’s a solution to every problem. We’ve come up with a few ways you can cut the cost of new windows without compromising quality so that your home renovation project won’t break your bank.
Go for combination windows
- Double casement windows are greatly sought-after, but they’re on the pricey side compared to fixed windows. Lower your cost of new windows by opting for designs consisting of a fixed light and a side guided window. Since only half of the window can be opened, this type of combination windows is cheaper to manufacture.

- 2Think second before buying triple glazed windows
Whilst the quality of our triple glazed windows is exceptional, think about whether triple glazing is suitable for your property. If you've got an old house with thin, poorly insulated walls, triple glazed windows may not be worth it as their performance won't be optimised. Triple glazed windows work best with new, well-insulated buildings, where they can minimise heat loss through windows and drastically cut your energy bills.
- 3Get rid of decorative glazing bars
Classic and elegant, windows with decorative glazing bars never fail to introduce period allure to any building. Yet, these attractive glazing bars are also a reason why your new windows are expensive. Instead of going traditional, try adapting a minimalist style when you renovate your home. Sleek, simplistic windows with no glazing bars can not only give your property an eye-catching modern look but also maximise the amount of natural light entering your home.
- 4Choose a timeless colour
Cutting the cost of new windows isn’t just about finding the best deal. It’s also about saving money in the long run. Therefore we recommend classic colours such as grey, black and white so that your new windows won’t ever go out of fashion. In fact, the three colours we offer are all rather timeless – we’re sure they’ll help your investment go the distance. By playing it safe with your colour selection, you can save money in the long run as you won’t have to repaint or change your windows any time soon!
- 5Find a supplier that offers value for money
Last but not least, don’t forget about choosing a window supplier who’s committed to delivering the best quality at the lowest price possible. You may be surprised to find out that the price tags of our double glazed windows are a lot smaller than the UK average. The average price of a double glazed timber window (60 x 90 cm) is between £850-1,000 in the UK, but at Klarwindows, you can get a casement window of the same material and size at as little as £149!
