The initial cost of replacing double glazed windows can sometimes put customers off of purchasing new windows & doors; home improvement loans are a great way of replacing your windows & doors without the substantial upfront cost.
Many companies have in house finance options to help with the cost of replacing double glazing, but could you get a better rate by shopping around for a home improvement loan?
In this guide, we will give you the pros and cons of using an in house finance option vs getting a home improvement loan.
In the double glazing industry, the interest rates vary from 7.9% APR to 12.9% APR although there are some companies out there offering lower and higher rates of interest.
Make sure you look carefully at the interest rates and any arrangement fees before signing up to any finance contracts.
You may also want to check that the company you are purchasing with is FCA accredited and is legally able to offer you the finance.
Home improvement loans are a great way to pay for your new double glazing; interest rates can be as low as 2.9%.

Compared to some of the double glazing finance options offered by double glazing installers, you could save over £2000 by opting for a home improvement loan.
So, in summary, double glazing finance is still a great way to purchase new windows and doors, but you could end up paying more back. If you use a double glazing company that includes an insurance backed guarantee, you will not be getting much benefit from the double indemnity protection.
Always take your time when considering purchases of double glazing there are many options available to you. As much as companies will want you to sign on the day and use in house finance, you always have the opportunity to look at home improvement finance.
