How Much Does It Cost To Install Aluminium Windows?


When planning a new window installation, the price tag is often the first thing people look at. Home renovation is an expensive process and in the current cost of living crisis, we understand that it’s even more important to our customers. So how expensive are aluminium windows? And how do they compare to the alternatives? Let’s take a closer look at the average cost of new windows.

Budgeting For New Windows

For clarity, this article will be referring to a guide posted on Checkatrade in January of 2023. The general figure to keep in mind is about £475 per window. This is a rough average though, and as with all building projects, there is no single fixed price; installing aluminium windows varies depending on a variety of factors.

For example, the location. The distance that the workmen have to travel and the conditions they work in will impact the bill; if you live in a windswept lighthouse on a remote Scottish island it’ll cost more than if your house is in the centre of a town. The size of the window will have to be considered too, as larger windows will inevitably be more expensive.

Aluminium Or UPVC Windows?

To put that into perspective, the average cost of a UPVC window is £325. Aluminium windows are the more expensive option and we fully recognise that if you look solely at the initial price, UPVC will be very tempting.

However, aluminium windows are the better long-term option. They’re inherently tough and durable, so you won’t need to worry about repairing or replacing them for years. They also offer exceptional energy efficiency and will cut down your heating and cooling bills. Lastly, they’re more eco-friendly, and while this won’t necessarily impact your wallet, it will give you greater peace of mind.

For all these reasons, we are confident that aluminium windows are a worthy investment. Plus, they’re incredibly eye-catching and stylish.
