    @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?
    Many thanks

    Thanks ever so much. I had a quote from supplier in which I have used to fit v small windows and they quoted about £1900 and then there would be fitting on top. I was not sure what a window company would charge but had hoped it woudlnt be over £3k.


    Thanks again for your help it is v apprciated.
