Aluminum windows: well-being at all / all prices!
Sticking an exact price on an aluminum window is an extremely hazardous exercise as there are variables that influence the price component. To try to answer the question "how much does it cost?", Let's look for a moment at average standard rates as well as the fluctuating elements to take into account before making your purchase. The price of a standard aluminum window with double glazing varies depending on: - The size of the window : it goes without saying that an XXL bay window will not have the same price as an aluminum window of 60 cm x 60 cm. - The type of glazing : double glazing, triple glazing, burglar-proof, anti-UV, tinted, anti-noise are all options that affect the price of the aluminum window. - The type of opening : the realization of a custom aluminum frame requires 20 to 40% of additional budget compared to a standard type aluminum window. That said, take into account the fact that a French window will be cheaper than a tilt-and-turn window, in the same way that the nature of your window will cause the price of this one to evolve - a window with small tiles will be more expensive to manufacture for example. - The choice of color and profiles : for a white aluminum window: no additional cost. For duck yellow: expect a little extra cost. - Installation and installation costs : here the installation conditions vary according to the quotes of craftsmen and professionals - these quotes taking into account the complexity of the removal of your windows as well as the level of difficulty of access to them. To reduce the installer's travel costs, one trick is to have all of his windows installed at once.
