How much do black, grey and coloured uPVC windows cost?

Choose the colour that matches the aesthetics of your property and you could give your home a unique look.

Of course, at this point, you’d be wondering how much these windows cost. Read on to see how much grey and coloured uPVC windows cost.

Factors affecting coloured uPVC window costs

How much do black upvc windows cost
Black uPVC windows from our members All About Windows

The cost of your windows will depend on a range of factors such as:

  • Colour: Some tones that are not as popular might cost you more. Similarly, if you choose a wood finish, you would pay more for it than for a flat colour.
  • Size: The size of your window plays a huge role in its cost. The bigger the window, the bigger the cost.
  • Shape: A square-shaped window is uncomplicated, and therefore costs less. On the other hand, if your windows are an unconventional shape, the manufacturer will have to put in more effort to get it right. Even a simple rounded top will add to the cost of your uPVC windows.
  • Type of glazing: Single glazing is much less expensive than double or triple glazing. However, if you want your home to stay warm in winter without exorbitant heating bills, you may want to opt for the latter options. Of course, whether you choose double or triple glazing will affect your coloured and grey uPVC window costs.

What are the benefits of coloured uPVC windows?

Here are some of the benefits of coloured uPVC windows:

  • Price: If money is a factor in your choice of windows, you can’t beat the quality and features you get, even with the low cost of coloured and grey uPVC windows. You’d be spending 50% to 100% less than what you’d pay for timber and aluminium windows.
  • Heat efficiency: uPVC windows have a multi-chambered profile that traps air to create a pocket of insulation. Combined with double glazing, these windows effectively trap heat within your home, giving you better thermal efficiency.
  • Aesthetics: When you have a dark coloured property, white windows would prove to be too stark a contrast. In such a case, you’d prefer a matching colour scheme for your uPVC windows. Alternatively, if you’re a person who prefers a timber aesthetic, uPVC windows could be the cheaper way to achieve that look. In either case, white uPVC windows would not be the right choice for you.
  • Ease of care: As you would know, white is the most difficult colour to maintain. Every smudge, every bit of dust and debris shows up clearly on your white windows. Coloured uPVC windows, on the other hand, are good at hiding minor imperfections, so you don’t need to be as conscientious about cleaning them.
