UPVC Windows FAQs

Price depends on the specification and size of your chosen window style. To receive an accurate quotation, please call us on 0300 333 6525 or submit a request and we will put you in touch with your local Eurocell installer. 
Eurocell has a network of 10,000 fabricators and installers around the UK. Call us on 0300 333 6525 and we can advise you on the nearest suitable installer for your needs.
Most window companies will offer a supply and install service. Those that don’t will be able to put you in touch with experienced, professional installers.
Yes! Modern double-glazed windows have much thicker glass units than windows of 10 years ago. This cuts down noise transfer, so you hear less noise inside your home, for a more peaceful, relaxing lifestyle!
No, you shouldn’t have to move out of your home while your new windows are being installed. Reputable installation companies will be able to complete the task quickly and efficiently. They normally complete one room before moving onto the next and will talk to you first to explain exactly what is involved.
Exact time depends on the number and style of windows. But as a general rule, a whole house (8-10 windows) should be fitted in 1-2 days. Your window supplier should carry out a full survey before the new windows arrive and will therefore know the extent of work required.

Carrying out the survey also means they will have manufactured all the replacement windows to the exact size needed to replace the old frames – again minimising time on site.
Look out for the British Fenestration Ratings Council (BFRC) Window Energy Label. This is similar to the one you may have seen on your fridge or washing machine. A-rated windows are the most efficient and are the best way of improving the energy efficiency of your home.
Your window supplier should be able to deal with the old windows. If they’re made from UPVC then they can be sent to a recycling facility where they are used to make new energy efficient products. Eurocell has its own UPVC recycling plant.
If you’re worried about your home being a potential target for burglars, then it’s definitely worth asking your window supplier if the company’s products are Secured by Design (SBD) accredited.

SBD is an official UK Police initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime.' If your window supplier has this accreditation it means they are authorised to supply windows and doors with an optional Secured by Design endorsed upgrade that includes extra security.

Most window companies offer a guarantee. Ask for details when you request a quote.
Some minor plaster work may be required around the window reveals, although your installer should carry out this work.
Yes, you will need to remove these to allow the installer clear access to the windows
Yes, they will need access to both the exterior and interior of your house to carry out window replacements. A reputable installer will make these arrangements with you and ensure that any mess is cleared away when the job is finished.
Planning permission is not normally required for repairing, fitting or replacing doors and windows, unless you own a listed building. If you live in a conservation area (or other designated area) you should consult with your local planning authority. Visit: www.planningportal.gov.uk for more information.
Normally, a soft cloth and warm soapy water is all that is required to remove dirt and grime. If you want a professional quality finish, specialist UPVC cream cleaner is available to buy from all Eurocell branches nationwide. Abrasive cloths and solvents should never be used to clean UPVC, as they will damage the surface finish of the profile.
