    10 uPVC windows and 2 doors + 1 composite door 6th Oct 16 at 9:39 AM
    I've had my first quote to replace all windows and doors.

    10 A+ efficiency uPVC windows with horizontal Georgian bar that'll be between the two panes.
    2 uPVC doors
    1 timber composite door

    The fitters will not be using towers or scaffolding and are a reputable local company. They offer a 10-year insurance backed guarantee.

    Approximate window widths and heights in cm (ft' in) by width descending:

    177 x 121 (5' 10 x 3' 12) left and right opening, fixed middle
    130 x 107 (4' 3 x 3' 6) left opening, fixed right
    121 x 119 (3' 12 x 3' 11) left opening, fixed right
    121 x 119 (3' 12 x 3' 11) right opening, fixed left
    120 x 105 (3' 11 x 3' 5) left opening, fixed right
    119 x 125 (3' 11 x 4' 1) right opening, fixed left
    115 x 119 (3' 9 x 3' 11) right opening, fixed left
    64 x 105 (2' 1 x 3' 5) entire opening
    57 x 102 (1' 10 x 3' 4) entire opening
    49 x 105 (1' 7 x 3' 5) entire opening

    The quote was a tad over £7,000. I'm happy with the company but have little clue whether this price is good or not. I have two other companies in mind to quote me. There's the hassle factor though, so if this quote is not overpriced I might just go forward with it. Would love to hear what you guys think.

    The outgoing windows are wooden framed double glazing. Rockdoors are quite high spec and therefore expensive aren't they? So even with 3 Rockdoors you think the job should be up to £1000 less than quoted?

    He does . Timber frames out . double glazed can be a pain but 10 windows out and 3 comp doors in for about 6k but certainly under 7k
