Window fitter day rate

If you want to replace your home’s entire double glazing or many windows at your property, the window fitter will probably charge you a day rate. The average day rate for a window fitter is £198, but as you can see from our table, the price can vary between £132 - £266 based on your location and the type of windows you want to install.

If your window fitter has lots of employees or is part of a national company, they will probably charge you more than a smaller window company as they'll have more overheads.

How to get the cheapest quotes when looking for a window fitter

Getting the cheapest quotes when looking for a window fitter requires some research and careful consideration. Cheapest doesn't always mean best, so you need to review all quotes carefully. Here are some steps you can follow to find the best deals:

Gather multiple quotes: Reach out to multiple window fitters in your local area and use sites like HaMuch to cast your net even wider. The more quotes you have, the better you can compare prices and negotiate for the best deal.

Ask for recommendations: Seek recommendations from friends, family or colleagues who have recently had their windows fitted. Personal recommendations can lead you to reliable and cost-effective professionals.

Request on-site visits: For a more accurate quote, invite the window fitters to visit your property and assess the work required. Avoid getting quotes over the phone or via email, as they won’t be specific to your property.

Specify your requirements: Be clear about what you need, including the type of windows, materials such as uPVC or aluminium, and any additional services you require. This will help the window fitters provide more accurate quotes.

Negotiate: Don't be afraid to negotiate with the window fitters. Some may be willing to match or beat a competitor's quote to secure your business.

Ask about special offers: Some companies may have special promotions or discounts that can help you save money, especially if you have old, inefficient double glazing. Look for any ongoing deals on their website or ask about current offers.

Avoid compromising on quality: While it's essential to find an affordable option, don't compromise on quality for the sake of a lower price. Poorly-installed windows can lead to costly repairs and reduced energy efficiency.

Remember that the cheapest quote doesn't always mean you get the best value. Consider the reputation, experience and reliability of the window fitters along with the price to make an informed decision.

Choosing a window fitter

Choosing a window fitter is a decision that can significantly impact the appearance, energy efficiency and security of your home. Here are some essential things to look for and do to help you make the right choice:

Experience and reputation: Look for window fitters with substantial experience in the type of windows you want to have installed, such as wood, and check that they have good reputation. Check online reviews, testimonials and ask for references from previous customers to get an idea of their track record.

Quality of workmanship: Look for a window fitter that offers high-quality workmanship. Ask to see examples of their past projects or visit locations where they have completed installations. This will give you a sense of the standard of their work.

Certifications: Check if the window fitter adheres to industry standards and has certifications from relevant organisations. Window fitters can register with competent person schemes such as FENSA or CERTASS, which allows them to self-certify that their work meets Building Regulations.

Range of products: Ensure that the window fitter offers a wide range of window options in terms of style, material and energy efficiency. This will allow you to find the best fit for your budget.

Communication and professionalism: Assess the communication skills and professionalism of the window fitter. They should be responsive to your enquiries and provide clear explanations of the project timeline and process.

Ask questions: Don't hesitate to ask the window fitter any questions you may have about the process, materials, or anything else related to the project. A reliable professional will be happy to address your concerns.

By following these guidelines and conducting thorough research, you’ll choose a window fitter who will provide quality work and give your home a great new look with replacement windows.

Window costs

Triple glazed windows cost

Triple glazing is said to be the most energy-efficient type of glazing for windows. Each window is made up of three panes of glass with spacers in between each one. It’s ideal for homes that are already quite energy efficient as it will reduce heat loss even further. You should also notice a reduction in noise as the extra layer of glazing will provide more sound proofing than double glazing.

Triple glazed windows cost more than double glazing in general due to the extra pane of glass and complexity of manufacturing. The cost of triple glazed windows in the UK can range from £400 to £1,200 per window, depending on size and specifications, but it can vary based on several factors:

  • Larger windows or bespoke designs may incur higher costs compared to standard-sized windows
  • The choice of frame material (e.g. uPVC, aluminium or wood) can also impact the overall cost, with uPVC being a more budget-friendly option
  • Energy-efficient features, such as Low-E coatings and argon gas fill, can add to the cost but provide long-term energy savings

uPVC windows cost

uPVC windows are a popular and cost-effective choice for homeowners across the UK. The cost of uPVC windows in the UK can range from £250 to £800 per window, depending on the size and style, but the final cost can vary based on a few things:

  • Standard-sized uPVC windows are typically on the lower end of the price range, while custom or larger windows often cost more
  • Additional features such triple glazing, energy-efficient coatings and security enhancements can add to the overall cost but offer long-term benefits
  • Where you live can also have an impact on cost, as installers in larger cities may charge more than those in more rural areas
