If you want to find an exact standard figure, then it’s unfortunate because there are none. For instance, the prices for TOSTEM aluminium door and windows products vary from one to another, depending on the product type and design.
So if you want to get the exact price for purchasing aluminium doors and windows, you must first identify your requirements and assess the cost as per the available options to get the total price.
Now, to answer your question more clearly, you can expect to pay anything between INR 135 to INR 28,000 or even more for your doors and windows, depending on the choices you make.
In this article, you will discover some of these options to understand better the cost of aluminium windows and doors in India.
Windows by a Company or Fabricator
While selecting doors and windows for your home or office, it is advisable to evaluate the provider. You can purchase products from a trusted company or a local fabricator. Moreover, some manufactures only take care of casting or extrusion and transfer the final fabrication task to the local provider.
All such scenarios mean that you have to depend on the local fabricator’s skill level for the performance or quality of the product. On the other hand, partnering with a trusted company that steers the end-to-end process of window manufacturing and fabrication does not depend on any local engineer or fabricator. For instance, TOSTEM INDIA ensures end-to-end product manufacturing, from casting to fabrication.
Such a partnership also ensures that the warranty you receive is from a trustworthy company and holds up. Hence, there can be fluctuations in the price of doors and windows of a local fabricator and a legitimate company. But in the long run, you benefit more from purchasing doors and windows from a company.
The price of a product is directly proportional to its size. But, instead of thinking about the price per sq. ft. in sizes, the buyer should first analyse the windows’ functional usage and quality features. Many times costly per sq. ft. window may not serve the functional requirement, and on the other hand, a low priced window will give the best performance as per the given home requirements.
The pricing will also vary if the windows are anodised, which are more preferred these days because of the surface finish and long-lasting life it provides. Such a coating is cost-effective as the windows and doors do not warp or corrode and require minimal maintenance.
For instance, TOSTEM aluminium windows and doors supplement anodisation with their patented TEXGUARD coating. Such a coating ensures that the products’ colour lasts for 40 years. More importantly, the prices for TEXGUARD-coated anodised coated windows are similar to standard anodised windows.
The window door design is another factor that affects the cost of purchasing doors and windows in India.
There are so many different designs available in the market, and the prices may vary depending on the material used, cost of production, supply, and demand, among other things. Examples include
- Casement windows
- Double casement windows
- TOSTEM folding doors
- TOSTEM sliding doors and many more
Another important factor influencing the cost of windows and doors in India is their utility or function. Different functions will have varied requirements, which may vary depending on
- The material used
- The size of the windows and doors
- Colour used
- Manufacturing/production process
- The thickness of the material used etc
All these will play a huge role in determining the aluminium windows prices in the Indian market. Some of the functions you might consider include but are not limited to
- Thermal efficiency
- Space utilisation in your home
- Maximisation of light in your home
- Wind, Air, and Water Insulation
For instance, if soundproofing is your top priority, you may have to choose from the different glazing options like double or triple glazing, etc., which may vary accordingly in terms of price.
In addition to sound insulation, you should also consider water ingress and wind load resistance while choosing Aluminum windows. A window manufactured by the local fabricator cannot ensure water and air tightness which is very important in coastal areas or cities.
On the other hand, many window manufacturing companies test their products on global standards such as ASTM, JIS, and BIS. This may vary in prices, but these factors are essential to be considered as they may affect the window performance to a large extent.
When calculating the cost for your doors and windows, you must never leave out the cost of installing them out of the equation. Although some window companies like TOSTEM offer total price inclusive of product, installation and delivery. Whereas other partners are complicated and may require some professional assistance to install. In this case, the total cost will depend on
- The difficulty of the job
- Value of the product
- The time needed to complete
As you can see, there are so many factors to consider determining how much you will need to pay for your aluminium windows and doors. But, it is advisable to prioritise your functional requirements.
