Sash windows are most commonly seen in older properties, many of which could still have the originals in place if they have been well taken care of. However in some cases they may need replacing. If you own a property where the sash windows have seen better days, you may want to consider replacing them with new ones.
Alternatively you may simply like the style of them and want modern versions installed instead. Whatever the case may be, you’ll want to find out a little more about pricing before you go ahead.
Average price examples
As you can imagine there is no specific figure you can put on a window like this. A lot will depend on a number of different factors. These include the size of the window, what it will be made from (wood or uPVC) and the quality of the glass used all have an effect on the price. However it is possible to get a ballpark figure.
Sash windows made in uPVC can start at around £300, although the cost can be more depending on the specific company you use. This is for a one metre square window, and the same size in solid wood would start from about £500. Existing wooden ones can be repaired in many cases, and the prices would normally be cheaper per window than actual replacements. However it does depend on their condition. If the window is only mildly in need of treatment, it will probably be far cheaper than a replacement. However, if it has definitely seen better days then a replacement might be the best option.
The type of sash window can also have an effect on the price. A box sash window replacement will usually cost more, especially if the box itself needs replacing and cannot simply be repaired to accommodate the new window.
If you own a period property and you want to replace the existing poor quality sashes with brand new ones that look old, you can expect to pay a lot more for them. In this case prices can be in the high hundreds and even reach £1,000 per window or more. Many specialist companies provide windows such as these for period properties. In a sense you will be paying for their expertise. The windows you receive from companies such as these will be authentic looking. They will also be far superior to the basic entry level uPVC sash windows that would only cost a few hundred pounds.
