How do I know if I need replacement uPVC windows?

Deterioration in uPVC windows can be hard to spot.

Unfortunately, it’s not always a simple case of inspecting your home to see why they might be harming your wallet or even your health. However, we suggest watching out for cracked, chipped or broken glass. Water leaking through and draughty frames are also a sure-fire indication that a replacement is overdue. Some choose to overlook these failings as they believe it’s too complicated a process or even unaffordable. Yet, the benefits far outweigh the cons.

 

Here’s how to measure for replacement uPVC windows

All our windows are A-rated as standard and comply with building regulations.

Replacement uPVC windows can be a considerable investment, so you want to get the size right the first time around.

Heightening your home’s energy efficiency results in fewer draughts, cold spots, fuel bills and Co2 emissions.

Equipment needed to measure replacement uPVC windows:

A metric tape measure (cm’s/mm’s) | A sturdy stepladder (if applicable) | Notepad | Pen/pencil

Important points to be aware of:

  • British window manufacturers and installers use the metric system

  • For absolute accuracy, take measurements from the property’s exterior
    • (excluding bay/bow windows; see below)
  • To avoid confusion, be sure to note width and height dimensions clearly
  • Measure from brick-to-brick, do not measure the existing frame

 

Measuring for replacement uPVC windows

  1. Measure the height and width of the window from the brick-to-brick opening around the window and underneath any existing window sills, add-ons or frame couplers.
  2. Take at least 3 measurements of height and width, from the top, middle and bottom of the window; so, you should have at least 6 measurements to work with.
  3. Subtract 10mm/1cm from the smallest height and width measurement.
  4. Repeat the process to ensure your measurements are 100% accurate.
  5. Send Boyland Windows your measurements for a quote.

  5. Repeat the process, to ensure your measurements are 100% accurate.
  6. Send us your measurements.

How much will my replacement uPVC windows cost?

uPVC is a desirable option as it typically costs less than timber, aluminium and composite frames

Something we get asked a lot is why we don’t showcase prices on our website. The simple answer is that we can’t give you an exact figure for your window replacement because there is no standard pricing. The price of your replacement uPVC windows depends on a wide variety of factors, chief of which is the dimensions. However, it also includes elements like:

  • Design and Style
  • Manufacturing quality and time that’s taken for installation
  • Finishing options, such as; sills, glazing, colours and handles

Our team are specially-trained to measure and assess your home; so that your windows are precision built, especially for you. The last thing we would want would be to list a price that contradicts the price a surveyor quotes when they assess the property. Also, by opting against listing such prices; we won’t risk being undercut by our competitors. Whilst we engage in competitive pricing, we are far more focused on delivering a quality service to our customers.
