    Another double glazing Journey 29th Jan 18 at 9:48 AM
    Hello looking for ballpark figure on replacement doors and windows;

    FRONT DOOR with 300mm glass side panel, 1155x2070, letterbox, at least 5 point locking, Upvc or composite
    BACK DOOR (KITCHEN) 860x2070 at least 5 point locking, 1 glass panel (less than door)
    FRONT WINDOW (BIG) 2050x1500 3 panes 1 opening all toughened
    FRONT WINDOW (FROSTED) 850x1050 2 panes 1 opening
    SIDE WINDOW (DINING) 1750x1200 3 panes 1 opening
    SIDE WINDOW (KITCHEN) 850x1050 2 panes 1 opening
    SIDE WINDOW (BEDROOM) 1150x1200 2 panes 1 opening
    BACK WINDOW (SPARE ROOM) 1150x1200 2 panes 1 opening
    BACK WINDOW (MAIN BEDROOM) 1150x1200 2 panes 1 opening
    All with trickle vents, locking handles, brown woodgrain external and internal.
    A/A+ rated glass and warm spacers.

    Going to get quotes from small independent, large independent local manufacturer/fitter and possibly sole trader who did next replacement door for neighbour. Located in Inverness.

    Well first quote is in, spec changed slightly asked for oak woodgrain on white frames, and the front door is composite in chartwell green and back window spare room changed to french door. Price 9800. I'll not tell you how much for chartwell green on white frames throughout, needless to say its way over my budget.

    Small independent No1 came around measured, specified and has not got back to me , its been over a week, Im not chasing him if he can't be arsed.
    Independent No2 rough measure, some good advice, specified, and gave me a quote of 7500 after scribiling on a piece of scrap paper, this includes 2 composite doors. Im not sure weather he knows his prices or he just guessed and added 1000 to be sure....

    I was quoted 99,000 for double glazing 7 windows in a 3 bed terraced. The company was called Anglian.

    The 99,000 quote was comedy indeed. When I looked shocked, he offered me a discount, to do it for 60,000 instead of 99,000.
