Independent Advice

The Doors & Windows Compare website is owned and run by Insight Retail Group Ltd (IRG), a market intelligence agency for the home improvement industry that also runs the consumer facing price comparison websites Kitchen Compare and Bathroom Compare.

The Compare websites are dedicated to helping consumers save time and money during the process of researching for high value home improvement projects such as replacement doors and windows and new kitchens and bathrooms. These projects are almost always complicated and require a significant investment in personal time, project management and ultimately cost. There are often many decisions to be made including the choice of colours, styles, functionality, how to finance the project and most importantly where to buy from and who is going to install and complete the final project.

Our mission is to help consumers make the right decisions during this process, when investing in their homes and we aim to do this by delivering independent and transparent advice.

Price Tracking

The information we provide through our Compare websites is obtained from a number of sources, including publicly available information obtained from the featured retailers and suppliers. This information is extracted from websites, from in-store prices and printed promotional material available from physical stores and from other printed sources including retailers national press and TV adverts. The products, attributes and prices of the specific items featured are obtained and checked on a regular basis across each of the featured retailers and suppliers.

Points Of Quality

You may think all Doors & Windows are created equal - this is not the case with many different factors all going into the manufacture and production of each item. Here we look at several areas that are worth considering before you purchase.

Comparing Price

We have created four unique ‘model’ homes upon which the Doors & Windows Compare price comparisons are based. In each case, components with identical specifications have been identified from the retailers and suppliers price lists. The four model homes are based on the most common types of home available in the UK and are used to provide an indicative cost of replacing all of the doors and windows.

House Model Comparisons

The comparisons we make and the prices we show on Doors & Windows Compare are based on four model homes. A two bedroom terrace, a three bedroom semi-detached, a four bedroom detached and a detached bungalow. We find this is the best way to simply and quickly provide an indication of the cost of purchasing fully installed replacement doors and windows for your home.

The model homes are based on typical UK houses and include a range of different sized windows from a small single window through to triple and quadruple windows, a front and back door and a French door at the rear of the property.

The prices we publish provide a good indication of the retail prices you will pay today to replace all your external doors and windows in a typical house of that size. What you see below is the breakdown of the items included in each of the three unique Doors & Windows Compare model homes.
