    Window and Conservatory Overview

    Window fitters install new or replacement windows, conservatories and glazed curtain walls in homes and businesses. These window specialists work with traditional wooden and metal framed products as well as modern UPVC units. Typical jobs include removing old windows and doors with hand and power tools, measuring up for the new windows or doors, fixing the units in place, making sure they are secure, sealing the fittings to ensure a weathertight finish and removing leftover materials and making good any damage to timber or plasterwork. Experienced window fitters may also use their skills to repair and replace windows in old listed buildings making use of wooden sash windows for example, whereas others may specialise in Velux windows, conservatories or decorative glazing.

    Types of Conservatory

    There are a number of conservatory styles and material types to choose from, with the main options being Edwardian conservatories, Lean-to conservatories, P-shaped conservatories, L-shaped conservatories, and Victorian conservatories. The type of conservatory you choose, as well the overall size, will have an effect on the overall price. Conservatory prices will vary depending on how big the conservatory is, the style, the materials the conservatory is made of, and whether you opt for additional features such as blinds or underfloor heating. The average cost of building a conservatory is around £9,000, but you can get a small, basic conservatory for as little as £5,000, whereas luxury builds can cost as much as £100,000!

    Decorative Glazing

    Many homeowners today choose to add to the individuality of your home by fitting decorative glass to their windows, doors or conservatories. Popular choices include Georgian bars, decorative leading, coloured and beveled glass, though, with modern window manufacturing technology and techniques such as including sandblasting, acid etching and painting, the choices are infinite. Decorative glass can be fitted as part of a new build when replacing existing windows, or you can even simply replace the double glazed units, keeping your existing window frames.

    Triple Glazing

    Triple glazing uses three panes of glass and two gas-filled spaces (usually filled with argon) acting as insulation to cold. These triple glazing units produce a thermally efficient barrier to cold and draughts and triple glazed windows are available in a wide range of sizes, colours, and styles to choose from. Most manufacturers will guarantee triple glazing units for 10 years or more for peace of mind. Triple glazed windows are up to 40% more efficient than double glazed windows and also offer more noise reduction along with cheaper fuel bills. Triple glazed windows cost around 50% more than "A" rated double glazed windows, but they offer greater energy saving benefits.

    Energy Saving Glass

    Double-glazed windows have two sheets of glass with a gap between them acting as an insulating barrier which is often filled with gas. Triple-glazed windows work on the same principle but have three sheets of glass and two insulating barriers. To choose the most energy-efficient window you need to check the BFRC rating. The most energy-efficient glass for double glazing is a special Low-E glass which has a coating of metal oxide which lets in light and heat but stops much of the heat getting out. Energy saving glass can be fitted in all frame materials including uPVC, wood, aluminum, steel, and composite frames.

    Velux & Skylight Windows

    Roof windows, often referred to as Velux or skylight windows are available with a variety of opener types including centre pivot, top hung, means of escape, conservation, one-third opening, side hung, balcony and terrace. The cost to fit a Velux or roof window in a traditional tiled roof with easy access from the loft is around £1000 and includes labour plus timber, window, flashings and building inspectors fee. In the U.K. Velux are the market leader but there are many other popular manufacturers including RoofLITE, Keylite, Duratech, Roto, Fakro and Tyrem. Roof windows come in two parts as a kit, the window itself plus the flashing kit that allows fixing and weatherproofing.

    Wooden Casement and Sash Windows

    Unlike cheap uPVC units, wooden windows offer a more traditional, elegant look which will blend neatly with older brickwork. But wooden windows do require some maintenance in the form of a paint/varnish at least every other year to keep them in good condition. Wooden casement and sash windows are available in a range of different colours and grains and a typical double-glazed wooden unit including glass will cost around £400 to £500 on average, the actual cost, of course, will depend on a number of factors including window size. Wooden sash windows are a little more expensive but can still be double glazed. Fitting costs will vary from company to company but expect to pay around £100 to £150 per man per day, plus for windows on a first or second floor, there will be an additional cost for scaffold hire.

    Choosing a Window Specialist Near Me

    When choosing a window specialist, you need to ensure you make the right choice first time, replacement windows and doors are not cheap! There are a number of national window companies, but many go the local fitter route as using a local window fitter can minimise hassle as their showroom and previous installations will be nearby. Local fitters will be more familiar with the architecture of the local area, plus they are likely to be able to put you in touch with other professional tradesmen in the local vicinity if the windows are part of a larger job such as an extension or loft conversion.

    Finding a Reputable Conservatory or Window Fitter

    Unfortunately the conservatory and double glazing industry are still blighted by a tiny minority of cowboy tradesmen, with many horror stories of poor workmanship, overcharging and high-pressure sales. However, these stories are the exception rather than the norm, there are many reputable conservatories and double glazing installers to be found throughout the UK. If someone amongst your friends, family, and colleagues has recent first-hand experience of a reputable glazing company, then that recommendation is as good a place to start as any.

    Failing that, ensure that you obtain quotes from three or more seemingly reputable companies which are preferably affiliated to a trade association as a good starting point. Don't be afraid to ask questions and check references, reputable fitters will be more than happy to provide these. Building Regulations and planning permission do not normally present any problems when fitting a conservatory or replacement windows and doors, but planning permission is your responsibility ultimately, so if you live in a listed building or a conservation area, you must comply with Building Regulations. A professional fitter can, of course, contact your local authority on your behalf and advise in regard to any planning issues.
