uPVC tilt and turn windows prices
Tilt and turn windows manufactured from uPVC or aluminium are usually the most popular. uPVC tilt and turn window prices are generally excellent value as they require very little maintenance, unlike wooden frames that need regular painting and can eventually rot. Aluminium is prone to discolouration and may eventually show signs of corrosion.
uPVC tilt and turn windows prices tend to range from £280 for an 800 x 800 mm window, to £405 for a 1,200 x 1,200 mm window. Bear in mind that these costs are for the windows only, excluding installation. They tend to be cheaper to buy and maintain than other styles.

What is a tilt and turn window?
Tilt and turn windows are becoming increasingly popular due to their elegant appearance and practical features. They incorporate an innovative hinge mechanism that allows them to open in two completely different ways.
You can fully open them to the side as you would with any traditional window casement except the panes are positioned inside the room. Alternatively, you can tilt the window pane into the room with the opening at the top. It safely leaves enough space for fresh air to enter, but it’s far too small for children or pets to squeeze through.
The double hinge mechanism is easily operated using the handle that’s fitted to the window frame. When the handle points in a downwards position, it’s firmly and securely shut. When you want to fully open the window, you simply turn the handle by approximately 90 degrees. If you would like the window to tilt inwardly from the top, you turn the handle by 180 degrees.
Tilt and turn window advantages
- Versatile design: The innovative ‘two windows in one’ design is practical with openings that are perfect for ventilating the room at any time, helping to keep condensation at bay.
- Ideal for small rooms: The streamlined tilt mechanism saves space and provides an unobtrusive window design.
- Easy to maintain: The tilt and turn design is very to keep clean. You can effortlessly wipe the exterior of the panes of glass from inside the room.
- Air-sealed for insulation: The design is air-sealed to create an effective barrier against rain, wind and noise, helping to keep your home cosy and dry.
- Unobstructed views: Tilting the window lets you look out without the frame getting in your way.
- Safety: Lockable positions let you set the window so that it’s safe at all times. The tilt and turn window is also reliably secure against intruders.
