Why don’t double glazing companies have prices on their websites?
Before we purchase a ‘big ticket’ item such as double glazing, we like to do our research. The internet has made this process a lot easier. Double glazing company websites like ours have lots of information on them. But there’s one thing they’re quiet on – price. So why don’t double glazing companies have prices on their websites?
In this blog post, we’ll try to explain why double glazing companies don’t usually put prices on their websites.
The simple answer is that it’s more difficult to give prices than you might think. This is because there are a lot of different factors that will affect the price of double glazing. Let’s look at a few of them.
The type of windows you want will affect the price of your double glazing
Different windows have several pricing points. For example, a standard white casement window will cost less than a UPVC sash window. This is because a sash window is more complicated to manufacture than a casement window. But even though a sash window is more expensive, for some homes and some homeowners, it’s the only choice for them. If that’s you, you’ll be happy to pay the premium.
The details you request on your windows will affect the price of your double glazing
Even within the same type of window, there are lots of factors that will affect the cost. There’s no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ price when it comes to double glazing. Choosing a coloured frame will make a difference, as will leaded lights. In all these cases, while you could opt to do without them to keep the cost to a minimum, adding the details might give you a much better sense of satisfaction in the long term.
The quality of the windows will affect the price of your double glazing
The old cliché of ‘you get what you pay for’ is certainly true when it comes to double glazing. You can buy cheap double glazing and you can buy expensive double glazing. The key is to buy good value double glazing.
For example, with Majestic Designs you get 100% lead-free 70mm uPVC profiles which help to protect the environment and provide a smooth and stylish aesthetic. All our uPVC windows achieve an A+14 WER (Window Energy Rating) and are fitted with multi-point locking systems that easily exceed BS7950 security specifications as standard.
Then there’s the obvious one – the bigger your windows the more likely they are to cost more.
