    Double Glazing

    Any recommend either a national installer or a companylocal to Haslemere, Surrey that is low cost but reasonable quality, and who isn't a complete cowboy outfit.

    will check my records in work tomorrow and pm you some contact details as my company supplies conservatory products (Polycarbonate glazing bars etc0 to companies in the area:thumbsup:

    cheapest way is to roughly measure your own windows and decide what openings you want .go to a local window manufacturer and get a quote to supply windows.then ring a couple of local double glazing companies and get quotes.you should look to pay an average of £50 per window fitted.so if you need 6 windows and you can get them supplied for £700 then you should be looking to pay around £1000 supplied and fitted.its just a rough estimate.decide exactly what you want before you allow a salesman in your door.and you should have a figure in your head on how much your happy to pay.dont sign or agree too anything.decide in your own time once you have had time to think.i paid £1400 for 6 windows and 2 doors including fitting.i had quotes as high as £6000 they can be robbing thieving ***** lol.

    Also might want to consider that the energy savings from double glazing are not that significant; there's something like a 35-50 year payback period on the investment.

    it depends how much you pay and what type of glass you use in windows.the most cost effective energy saving is cavity wall insulation or roof insulation.anyone on benefit can get this for free i believe.and homeowners can get this for a big discount through local government backed schemes

    It is more to update the look of the property, we currently have aluminium dg, a throwback from the seventies, looks pants and most of the unit are blown and misted.

    I figured about £50 fitting per unit, could probably do myself, but don't have all the right tools and fittings, by the time I have bought that lot I may as well have paid £250 to get the units fitted. Plus if i drop a unit it is not my problem :thumbsup:.

    I know a fair bit about dg but i am out of touch with suppliers, good thing is I know all the usual lines and rough costs, a guy from safe***** once told me the cost of 8 windows and 2 doors for insurance purposes was £60k, he could do me a deal on that day for just £20k :whistling:, he actually suggested I should increase my buildings insurance by £60k, eventually the cost dropped to £3800, to be fair he could have dropped the cost to £1000 and I would not have bought them from him after that.

    Thanks for all the input!:)
