Double Glazing makes a real difference to your home as not only does it look great, but it can save you money on your energy bills and increase your home security – BUT it does cost money so it is important that you pick a reputable supplier offering a good quotation.

Trotfield Windows is a reputable double glazing installer in Telford who have fitted double glazing in many homes throughout the area and they some important points to consider before obtaining double glazing quotations:

  • Check local regulations before getting a double glazing quote – some buildings are listed, and this means that either you will have to comply with certain aesthetic rules or cannot install double glazing at all.  Your home may also be a designated conservation zone which will also affect the alterations you can make to your home.   Contact your local council to find out the regulations for your area.
  • Have an idea what you want – it is easier to negotiate with double glazing suppliers if you know exactly what you want.  Carry out some research to ensure you know all of the products available. 
  • Check the energy rating - most double glazing units have an energy rating between A and G that gives an indication of how efficient they are at reducing heat loss from your house.
  • What would you like your window frames to be made of – window frames can be made from a wide range of materials including uPVC, wood and steel and they all have their pros and cons – do your research!
  • Consider your budget – think about how much you are willing to spend and whether there is any flexibility one you receive your quotations.
  • Make a list of questions – before you meet the sales person write down a list of questions to ask to ensure you don’t miss an important point.
  • Choose recommended companies – the very best double glazing supplier is one that is recommended by a trusted relative or friend who have double glazing installed by them and they were happy with the price, product and installation.
  • Check the company credentials - Check the credentials of the company, if they are not able to provide a certificate for your windows you will need to get the council out to provide this for you.
  • Don’t be afraid to haggle - there will always be some room for negotiation in the initial quote so have a go and see if you can get a higher energy rating or a discount on the price.
  • Get at least three quotes- you don’t always have to go with the cheapest, weigh up what is included in each quote.
