The total cost to double glaze your home will vary depending on the number of windows you have; how big they are, what style of windows you want (e.g. Awning or sliding etc.), the condition of the window openings, and the double glazed window installation process required. The type of window frame is also a factor in the cost of double glazed windows, as composite or aluminium double glazed windows are cheaper than the cost of timber.
We previously did a cost comparison with single glazed aluminium windows for a new build – the cost of single glazing fully installed was approximately $9,000 and our double glazed windows cost to be fully installed was approximately $14,000 for a small home.
The price difference and upfront cost for energy efficient double glazed windows are easy to justify with significantly improved quality products in the home and improved standard of living thanks to noise reduction, thermal efficiency, energy efficiency, and the money saved on heating and cooling costs.

The quality of the profile used to manufacture the window.
