Timber sash windows provide excellent insulation and are a fantastic way to add character and charm to your home. A great selection of styles, designs and sizes available on the market will allow you to find the perfect match for your home. But, with so many available options, it can be tricky to know where to start when pricing your new windows.
How much do wooden sash windows cost per m²
The cost of wooden sash windows per square metre can vary depending on many factors, such as size and complexity.
The average cost per square meter ranges from £150/m² – £350/m²
Many factors, including size, window, style, the wood used and many panes, will affect the cost of timber sash windows.
For example, a large single-glazed wooden sash window will be much cheaper than a small double-glazed one. Choosing a simple design with few or no decorative features will also help keep costs down. The most crucial factor in price is the materials’ quality, which will significantly impact how long your windows last.
Choosing between the three major window styles such as Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian, all have slight differences in determining the price.
You may also want to consider using reproduction windows, as these can offer more value for money. But, again, the key is to ensure that you select a style that complements your property’s look and feel.
Complexity of the window restoration or repair
The most important factor affecting the price is the number of different sections that make up the window. The more sections there are, the more difficult and costly it will be to make.
It’s also essential to consider the number of panes used in the window, and homeowners need to remember that they get what you pay for when it comes to wooden sash windows. You will also need to consider the problems that cheaper options might encounter, such as energy loss or draughts.
