    @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.
