  • How does it compare to the other quotes you’ve received? That will give you a sense.
  • Safe style ( before going bump) was £14k

    Go find some local independent installers, and avoid the ones that use salesmen on commission. And if they have a showroom, that will be another sign that prices will be higher.
    £11K sounds way too high.... Without knowing the sizes, I would expect something in the £6-8K range.

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

    Very big windows ?

    Wood I presume 

    Have you checked they have lintels to the exterior leaf ? 

    Plastic windows will definitely require them 
  • Thanks for the replies , old windows are PVC ( 30 years old ) so a straight replace 

    7 of the windows are approx. 7ft by 4ft 

    Regards

    Got another local quote at around same price 11k 

    Guess everything gone up a lot at the moment 

    both of the 11k quotes  are local firms with no salesman on commission or showrooms

    Went back and re-read your initial post - I missed the 6 windows upstairs....
    11 windows in total, three doors, plus a patio door - £11K isn't too bad. Expensive, yes, but as you point out, prices have gone up.

  • Last year we had our 1930s 3 bed semi (so also big windows) replaced. That was 9 windows, one back door, aluminium bifolds and a pvc front porch done for £16k and this was in London. We got 4 quotes all around the same.
