Customers often ask for a quick price over the phone for a new timber or aluminium windows or want to know the price difference between a few different window types. These seem like completely reasonable questions to ask however there are so many individual factors that determine the cost of a window or door that this often is a far more challenging task that would first appear. Wideline manufacture all windows and doors to order, which means that every window will vary as production processes, labour time, and materials all need to be factored in.
Here are just some of the things that determine the cost of a window:
Because there are so many factors that affect the cost of your window, it makes it impossible to estimate your window and door costs on the spot without all the necessary information. What’s more, each of these factors can alter the cost significantly. That’s why we require certain information about your window, to then provide you with a quote.
It’s important to understand that all the factors above influence the cost of your windows. Wideline input all this information into our computerised quoting tool. Wideline’s quoting tool analyses this data to accurately price each window and door to your specific requirements. Without knowing all the essential information and inputting it to our quoting tool, predicting the price for your window would be more like a stab in the dark than an educated guess.
Remember that installation costs are separate to window manufacturing costs. Wideline are a supply-only manufacturer of windows and doors so you will require a builder to install your windows. A builder can measure your windows to then quote for the windows and installation costs together. If you’d prefer to get a window and door quote directly from us, your builder will provide you with a quote for install only. Wideline always recommends that an experienced builder who is familiar with our products measures, orders and installs your windows. This improves your chance of a hassle free experience. It also reduces the chance of an error in your order.
If your window quote is more than what you can budget for, speak to your Wideline representative. They can walk you through the factors that determine the cost of a window and door and suggest ways that can reduce the overall cost for you. It might be as simple as opting for a different window or door type or swapping the product range of some of your windows.
