Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Hi everyone

We need our sash windows replaced. They have a rounded top so would be best if they are wooden. However the cheapest quote we have has is £6.5k which is too much. Does anyone have any suggestions about how i can get them done cheaper? And ideally recommendations for companies to try?

Best wishes,

Sally.

It depends on how many windows you are talking about? The least we were able to get 3 timber bay windows was in the region of £5K, and that excluded new boxes etc. Furthermore they were of the rectangular variety. We did go far and wide and got approximately 5-6 quotes. 

Thanks for this i eull have a look. It is for 3 windows 

Locally there’s PM Windows and Acorn. Both have lots of recs on HoL. They’ll charge between £1.6 and £2k for a rectangular bedroom size window. No doubt a rounded top will be more expensive. Going for cheap windows may well prove to be a false economy.

I’ll add a tag to your post so you can check out other threads. 

Thank you 

Do you know what wood you were quoted for? You want windows to be made out of a hardwood like Sapele, that is extremely durable. But expensive. We had ours done by Acorn and they are Sapele. 

Not sure which wood! Will have to look. Thanks!

I had a cheaper quote recently from Woodstock Joinery in Archway, which a friend had used and recommended. I decided to go with Acorn (more expensive) because of their insurance backed guarantee and better presentation/more info etc, but my friend didn't have any problems with Woodstock. (NB there is another Woodstock Joinery possibly in Enfield but I don't think they are connected.)

Thank you!!

I think Woodstock would definitely beat that quote for 3 windows. Or Acorn do refurbishment as well as replacement if you wanted to get a quote for that. 

Have you sourced a quote for getting them restored? Most carpenters do Sash window restoration

  • They're beyond restoration i think....

Worth getting a quote. I thought mine were beyond restoration but the carpenter did wonders.
