What to bear in mind for UPVC Windows Prices Quotes
When you start out looking for double glazing prices, especially UPVC, then you need to give yourself a little preparation in order to have a good chance of getting a nice deal.
All UPVC Windows Prices are not created equal. There can be a wide variation in costs for even the same sized window, depending on where you are and who you but it from.
The cheapest option many folks think of is to buy the windows and fit them as a DIY job. Let me tell you, this is not a good idea unless you are in the trade and are skilled enough.
Even then, there are things you might overlook or regulations that you may not be up to date with.
Saving a few pounds here could cost you a lot more over the long run. Stick with the professionals, but be choosy.
Firstly: don’t deal with an installer supplier who is not a member of a recognised trade body. Trade bodies are there to help weed out the scammers and cowboys.
Associatioans like FENSA, CERTASS, GGF , DGCOS TRUSTMARK etc are all signs that the installer has price in their work and has been confident enough to be vetted and accredited by these independent trade bodies.
Trade associations also offer better consumer protection if things go pear shaped.
Secondly: Check out their local history. Get references from clients in your area.
Thirdly: Get at least 4 or 5 separate quotes from big & small companies. Local companies can often provide a really competitive deal on prices with good quality work & material.
Finally, take your time. If you are not happy with the quotes, get another one. Don’t sign any contract in a hurry. Any credible company will hold the quote for at least 14 to 28 days. go here for more information.
