    @Greenface

    Thanks for the Thanks but not sure why?

    Anyway here's my quote

    Measurements-My rough brick to brick

    Windows 17 in total (5 Non opening.)

    120cm x 100 x 10 (3 not open)

    90cm x 100 x 2

    60cm x 100cm x 2 (1 Not open)

    66cm x 66cm x 3 (1 Not open)

    Doors
    210cm x 100cm x 3

    Patio
    210cm x 195cm x 1


    Got 3 quotes from Independents who all seem to use Liniar

    All A rating glass and secure doors (?)

    Cambridgeshire area.

    Quotes range from

    £7k

    £10K

    £13K

    The £13k is for a Oak effect and doors at £1k each (his words) and the others just plain white (no detail on doors) so I would assume that would bring it down to around £10K

    All are local and have good reviews on various sites.

    So my question is:-

    Why is the cheapest £3K less or is this a fair quote?

    What do I need to ask this firm to determine why their quote is way cheaper?

    Thanks

    there maybe a decent firm close to you knocking out liniar for a good price . Liniar is a decent system but something I know little of . 17 white frames brick to brick . depending whats coming out and make up needed could be done for about 5k and not more than 6 add a grand for each comp door and patio theres your 10k I would say max as they are not big frames but 7k is good price for similar profiles and fits but it wouldn't leave a great deal over to be fair , As a job for me I would go in about £8,750 ish and reluctant to drop anything , done within a week


    p.s I'm not interested , too far & too busy

    £9700 Rehau
    £9800 Kommerling
    £10,275 Komerling
    £10,465 Kommerling or Rehau (supposedly)

    All same guarantees etc, differences maybe composite doors specs.

    So Liniar looks too cheap.

    Indication price for 3 large double glazed windows
    Hi,


    I have recently moved into a new property in SE Kent and have 8 windows that need replacing, 3 of which are priority.


    Just looking for price range that should be looking at before making any calls.


    Will be looking for A rated windows which I gather are standard these days.


    All fairly big windows.


    Front bedroom - 256cm wide and 152 cm high. Split into 3 sections - roughly 200cm x 152 cm non opening. 56cm x 152 cm opening and within that a very small separate opening window at top.


    Lounge side - as above


    Lounge front - 380cm wide and 152 cm high. Split into 4 sections - roughly 2 middle panes 130cm x 152 cm non opening. 2 outside panes 60 x 152cm opening with again 2 small separate windows opening at top.


    General rough price to be looking at would be greatly appreciated.


    Many thanks

    Could someone please tell what price range to expect to pay for this. All Rosewood on the outside and I'll probably do front & back separately. TIA. Edit: I'm in outer London.

    Greenface - is there any chance you could give me rough idea of what you would expect price to be for the 3 windows. Or is there anything else you need?

    3 Bedroom 1930s terraced house
    How much should I be expecting to approximately pay for A or better rated double glazed windows in a 1930s 3 bedroom terraced house in London?

    There are:

    2 bay windows which each have 6 panels across each bay
    1 bay in the small bedroom with 3 panels across
    3 3 panel windows, the one in the bathroom has frosted glass

    I'm unsure if I should replace the double glazed patio door or not. What sort of cost would this be?

    All current windows are single glazed made of wood. Wanting to get uvpc and the wooden window sills replaced with uvpc as well.

    One local company which has not visited gave an approximate price of £13-15K when I asked. I thought it was going to be more likely to cost around a third of this price. I'm unsure if that is the list price and when it comes down to the actual quote it will be more inline with my estimate.

    I think I just want plain glass without any lead patterns. Unsure if to go for white or a coloured wood grain sort of look. I assume white will cost less.

    The wooden front door has a piece of single glazed glass in it and for the surround at both sides. Will this be quite expensive to get made to be double glazed either by adding extra glass or replacing the shaped sides?

    I did see a house which had tinted glass in the front windows. Probably for some privacy. Does that cost a lot more?

    Is it be worth getting soffits and facias replaced in uvpc at the same time to save money? Any idea as to the likely cost?

    Thanks for your help.

    too vague to give you anything but a guess but that's over a grand a window if you have 3 sided bays . London prices really baffle me being from Merseyside that figure is simply laughable . Half it and knock a bit off and that's a normal 30s house with timber coming out (are they box sash now ? coloured frames and tinted glass (antisun) are more expensive also . soffits and facias will stop people coming back again so all the mess in one job . as for price --its another job that can run seemingly better normally . Impossible to price where you are but try for about £30 running meter see where that gets you . pic would help even one from rightmove of a similar house . all depends whats coming out and the finish

    4 pane sliding door
    Hi all,

    New to the forum, and keen to get some advice as I'm struggling. I've been looking at a 4 pane upvc sliding patio door (2200mm x 4200, 0-x-x-0, trickle vent, 1970s house) and I'm finding it hard to see what you get for your money. Three quotes to supply and fit three different door manufacturers from three different companies (all smallish, which trusted traders, FENSA):

    1. £2300, Evolve (6pt locking)
    2. £3245, Deceunick 24 (7pt locking)
    3. £3895, KAT door and Rehau windows (6 or 8pt locking)

    For me, there are two aspects
    a. the companies could be adding extras / worth checking the guarantees. And
    b. the product, the profiles look similar, does anybody know what is the difference is between them? What do you get for the extra money? What should I be looking for? Or is it just the companies charging more for very similar products?

    All thoughts welcome to help make sense of the products and how much to pay for them!

Are the 2 doors sliding the same or different ways (I expect you to say different) trying to work out an 8 point locking system . Ive recently done one for 2700 inc timber make up & cill into existing hole . simple seal outside
