What’s the best window for my home?

With so many window styles and costs it’s hard to judge the balance between cost and quality. Your windows also need to be sensibly priced; not breaking the bank. To help you make the right decision we’ve taken a close look at the most common new windows:

Sash Windows are by far the most elegant and beautifully functioning. They clean well and ventilate rooms perfectly allowing cold air to enter through the lower part of the window and hot air to escape at the top creating ideal circulation and air quality within your property. If you own a period property it would be wise to carefully consider these windows.

Double Glazed Windows come in the form of wood, uPVC, and aluminium and are generally well priced. They offer best value for money in terms of function and aesthetics for more modern homes

Casement Windows also are wooden, uPVC, or aluminium. They are a cheaper alternative to sash windows as they don’t have the mechanism. Bare in mind this doesn’t mean they have to open outwards, they can open in for cleaning convenience too. Here’s a look at a powder grey aluminium casement.


UPVC Windows are the least elegant but cheapest of all new windows. In the right home they can look great and save thousands when compared to wooden sash windows.

What issues arise from new windows?

In April 2012, came the launch of new building requirement part-L. This mean’t all new windows would need a building control sign off or a self certified installer that could provide the homeowner with a certificate proving the install thermal efficiency was met the correctly.

Without this piece of paper many homeowners struggle to complete on homes. Make sure that if you decide to self install, you have the efficiencies of all windows and glazing in writing. If you decide to use an installer, check that he is accredited by Certass or Fensa.

If you decide to self install then guarantees normally differ. A professional installer will provide you with a ten year insurance backed guarantee in the event they close down prior to this period expiring.

The biggest pitfall of all would be to check that your windows actually need fully replacing and are not in serviceable condition.

Do my windows need repair or replacing?

Many older wooden windows are very economical to repair. It’s normally the more modern uPVC and aluminium windows that’ll need replacement entirely. You should still check though; double glazing repairs are also very viable and can save a great deal of money especially if it’s just the odd pane of glass misted up.

Window repair is common and there are plenty of companies that will help with a lower cost option. In these situation site assessment or at a minimum pictures are required to quote as each case is far more specific. Replacing windows leaves far fewer variables. Here’s a table showing common problems and potential benefits associated with repair or replacement:

Advantages and disadvantages of replacing my windows

New windows do not need maintenance. Original period windows look beautiful.
New windows will considerably improve the warmth of a home. Replacement windows are more expensive than repair.
