    Think you'd be wise to get several quotes. I'd get quotes from reputable local companies instead of the large national companies.

    Depends. Does the quote include a contingency for lintels if they are required - An important point to check with older houses, as many of them used the wooden (and steel) frames to support the outer leaf of brickwork.

    £5K for eight windows is not excessive depending on colour & number of openings. But much is subject to what is involved during the fitting. Always worth getting other quotes from local independent installers.
    Her courage will change the world.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    Price is reasonably competitive, but check what warranty is offered - the last guy who was much cheaper to quote for our windows was offering a reduced warranty in comparison to the industry standard which I believe is 10 years
