Double glazing cost can vary greatly from product to product, and style to style. There are multiple factors that influence the double glazing prices so there is no clear answer to this question. However, you can get a fairly accurate estimate if you know what you want and how each factor will influence the price.
The size of the double glazing is one of the factors. So is the material of the double glazing profile. Additionally, the energy efficiency requirements, the security fittings, and other performance related functionalities also affect the double glazing cost.
For example, how well you want to weatherproof your doors and windows is something to consider. Additionally, the colour and finishing of the frames as well as the door hardware makes a difference to the double glazing price.

If you’re looking for low cost-high performance windows, then your best bet is to go for uPVC windows. The double glazing cost of uPVC windows is significantly lower than wooden or aluminium windows. However, the price can vary greatly due to style and size.
A typical 1800mm x 1200mm window will cost you around £350, while a small bathroom window can be as cheap as £150. A casement window measuring 60cm x 90cm can be £250, while the double glazing cost of a sash window of the same size might be £500.
Similarly, the double glazing cost for an average conservatory might be anywhere from £4,000 to £6,500, and go up to £50,000 or even higher. The double glazing price for these depends on the type of conservatory you want, the roof, and the windows and doors. As a result, you won’t be able to get a general idea unless you decide on the specifics.
As we mentioned earlier, the material you choose for your doors, windows and conservatories affects the double glazing cost. In general, wood is about 30% more expensive than uPVC and aluminium is up to 50% more. On the whole, this can mean a significant price variation between quotes.
Even in uPVC double glazing, the design and style you choose affects the double glazing cost. A sash window is more expensive than a casement window. A lean-to conservatory costs less than a Victorian conservatory. There is a difference in double glazing cost for French doors and bi-fold doors.
Even if you do have the same window styles, the sizes can vary. That will affect the double glazing cost. As is obvious, larger windows will cost more. A small window could be as low as £150, while a larger one would cost significantly more. Additionally, very large panes of glass might need to be reinforced, which adds to the cost.
Certain colours and finishes for your uPVC double glazing are more expensive than others. This is true for the hardware you want on them as well. For example, wood finish costs more than basic white. Similarly, a white door handle is not as expensive as a chrome finish handle.
While standard security features are built into our double glazing cost, additional security would cost you more. You can upgrade your double glazing security to the highest level and get a Secured by Design accreditation.
However, it will add to your double glazing cost, making it more expensive. Similarly, high security hardware for installing will also affect your double glazing price.
The kind of glazing you want makes a difference to your double glazing cost. Larger, reinforced panes of glass cost more. If your window is too close to the ground, you are required by law to have reinforced glass. Even if you have design on the glass, it affects your double glazing cost. Additionally, the windows energy ratings you desire will change the price. The higher the rating, the higher the price.
