How Much Do Casement Windows Cost?
Like all home improvement products, the price of your new casement windows can vary on a number of factors, including the size of the window, the style of window, what materials you want them made from and what additional features you want added.
For instance, uPVC and aluminium are incredibly popular alternatives to traditional timber windows. uPVC, standing of unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, is a hardened resin that is incredibly hardwearing and with a lifespan of around 25 to 30 years; uPVC windows are very affordable and, thanks to options for a woodgrain foil finish, able to replicate the look and feel of traditional timber windows without any of the natural wear and tear of actual wooden windows which often need repainting every few years to keep up their appearance.
Aluminium, on the other hand, is a bit more expensive than uPVC, but with a longer lifespan of around 45 years and a sleek and minimalistic appearance, they are well worth the investment.
Not just suited to modern homes, aluminium makes a perfect fit into more traditional properties, with a range of colours covering the entire RAL colour wheel. Unlike uPVC, aluminium casement windows’ slimline frames blend in well with any kind of architectural style and do not draw attention away from other features by sticking out of their frame like uPVC often does.
No matter what material you choose, uPVC and aluminium are both hardwearing and strong against outside forces, harsh weather and anyone trying to gain entry to your home, often coming with multi-point locking systems as standard.

How Much Should I Pay For New Windows?
When getting some brand-new windows for your property, budget it going to be a major deciding factor what kind of window you want.
Not only does the design of your window affect the price, but also how many windows you want installed, with every additional window adding to the price.
With single windows costing around £250 to £800, depending on the style of window, the size and what materials you want it made from, when trying to find the right price for your new windows shopping around and comparing different prices and companies to ensure an affordable quote and a high-quality installation is always the best way of making sure you have the best deal.

Windows are a vital protection against both the worst of the weather and anyone trying to gain entry from the outside, and a well-done installation not only improves your houses’ overall appearance but can end up paying for themselves through the money they can save you in heating bills thanks to their outstanding thermal insulation.
Are Casement Windows More Expensive?
When looking into the price of different kinds of windows, you may have noticed that different designs of window come with different price tags.
So, how much is a casement window, and does it cost more than other types of design?
Casement windows are actually one of the most affordable designs out there, with the price varying between around £200 to £500 for an individual window, although this price can vary up to around £1,000 depending on the size of the window, materials it is being made out of, any additional features and labour costs for its installation. Sash windows, however, cost around £500 to £1,000, while tilt and turn windows cost £400 to £800.
However, all of these prices can change dramatically to be cheaper or more expensive depending on your design specifications.

How Much Is A uPVC Casement Window?
For decades uPVC has remained one of the most popular materials used for a range of home improvement products, and it isn’t difficult to see why.
Standing for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, uPVC is a hardened resin that is incredibly hard-wearing, durable and easy to maintain, not showing any of the wear and tear that natural timber frames often suffer from.
While timber frames need sanding, varnishing and repainting every few years to prevent them from flaking, chipping and generally looking worse for wear, uPVC remains looking great for over 30 years with only an occasional wash down needed to get rid of any residual grime.
uPVC is incredibly easy to manufacture, with a vast majority of it being recycled into new units once they have reached the end of their natural lifespan, which makes it incredibly affordable.
The cost of a uPVC window typically starts at around £200 for a basic 1000mmx1000mm casement window, with the cost increasing in terms of size and what colour you want.
While white is the standard colour, you can choose for your uPVC window to have a natural woodgrain foil to replicate the look and feel of timber windows, usually only costing up to £50 more.
Another alternative material commonly chosen for windows, however, is aluminium.
Made from natural metal rather than being manufactured, it is far better for the environment, but with the cost of the material being higher than uPVC it is a little bit more expensive.
Aluminium frames are incredibly sleek and are a popular choice for more modern builds, although they can easily suit any type of property, with a slimline design that doesn’t stick out beyond the frame like many uPVC designs and maximises the amount of glass per window. For a singular aluminium window installation, it is typically expected to cost you between £200 and £500.

Like their door counterparts, French casement windows open from the centre, with two independently opening panels which open out in a swing arc, inwards or outwards depending on your preference.
When fully open, this window creates a large aperture that not only allows for excess amounts of ventilation and a great view but also provides a useful escape route in case of fire or another emergency.
With both panels able to be independently opened and closed, however, you can also control the amount of ventilation into your home, keeping your property from becoming stuffy without venting out all of your central heating.
French casement windows also feature a centre mullion, breaking up the glass in an ornate decorative pattern, similar to that of a French Door, which is isolated from the outer frame and is carried by the sash when opened to create an unrestricted view.
