Hidden costs of double glazing
A lot of us quite like to get a general sample or idea of local double glazing quotes online before we get serious about buying anything and without doubt, when potentially spending a lot of money we are inclined to do this kind of thing first.
The thing is, when you ask a double glazing window installer for a price over the phone or an estimate, you may not think about the little things that you need to tell them in order to get a realistic price.
Did you know that for every window that opens some installers make an extra charge? Or if you are fitting casement windows into a space where old box sash windows used to be then you will be charged extra for ‘making good’.
Even things like the type of cills or window furniture can add costs to the job – so the only way to know for sure is to get a written quote for the cost of your own double glazed windows, not the average cost.
