What are the replacement window prices?
To understand the costs behind installing replacement windows, you have to take into account both salary and materials. A tradesperson will generally be paid £150 per day and if they require the help of a labourer, that will cost on average an additional £100 per day. If the glass replacement job requires scaffolding, it will cost an extra £175 per day. On top of this, you have to take into account the actual cost of the glass replacement. So if you have just one single glazed window pane to be replaced, it will cost on average £100 for the tradesperson to supply and fit the new pane of glass; this cost will usually involve a clean-up.
What if I have an unusual window?
Specialist windows will usually cost considerably more to replace as the work is more highly skilled and the materials more costly. A stained glass window usually costs between £30 and £100 per square metre to replace. A sash window costs quite a considerable amount, on average £1,000 per window replacement.
How do I find someone to replace my glass windows?
Check out approved installers who will fit your replacement windows in line with government building regulations. There are several Competent Person schemes; installers who are part of these schemes will provide you with a certificate to prove the work meets building regulations once the replacement windows are fitted. Registered schemes for windows can be found by looking up FENSA, Certass or the Network VEKA website. If you pick a window installer who has not been registered with such a scheme then you will need to apply for building control approval before installing any replacement windows.
