Some surprising cost perks of getting your windows replaced

UPVC Windows

You may have heard about the many benefits of getting your windows replaced with much more energy-efficient, double-glazed versions, but many worry about the first hurdle: will it be too expensive?

On top of this, many homeowners are worried about the cost in the long-run, and whether it will be an investment that’s worth making.

Panic not, however, as there are many funding options for those who want a more secure, energy-efficient home, and not have to empty their bank account to do so.


Many people have heard of the help to buy mortgage schemes, aimed at helping younger generations to get a foot-hold on the housing ladder. Did you know, however, that the same principle exists for those looking to get replacement windows?

There are a number of installation companies that are partnering with the Help2Buy Windows Scheme, which provides homeowners with access to otherwise expensive home-improvements. This breaks up the cost of the overall payment, eliminating the need to pay a large, lump-sum up-front.

This funding method makes it more affordable for those who do not have large sums of money in the bank, ready to spend on home-improvements.

As with many other funding policies, your needs will be assessed individually so that an estimate of how much funding you will need can be decided.

While the funding itself isn’t actually provided by Help 2 Buy Windows, one of the aforementioned associated installation companies will provide this instead.
