Nobody on here can tell you if the quote is expensive without knowing the size of the windows, how many vents you want in them and the quality of them. You need to get at least 3 to 4 quotes so that you can make the comparison.

The quote we have had is with a local private team that replaced our roofline and doors, which were reasonably priced.

I think that is inexpensive. Just counting up my windows and I think it is 10 or 11, a mixture of sizes and we paid 10k in 2015. Ours are cottage style, a bit like this (we didn't use this company).

There is an old expression that is very true for loads of things and also windows. Buy cheap buy twice.

The hinges and shoot bolts are where certain suppliers compromise. Then 5 years later people spend a fortune having to repair them.

Finding the middle ground is the hard bit. Not being ripped off but also getting good quality at a good price.

Fine for Tradesmen as we know the form, not so easy for others.

OP. Hope you get a good price and quality for what you want.

Our windows are about 25 years old now, I think they cost about 6k back then. We will be getting a new back door soon (never had a pvc one because of cat flap) and sadly replacing our last original sash window (circa 117 years old).

For most things I would agree. But there are two exceptions for me - kitchens and uPVC windows. The profit built into these products seems to be enormous.

The prices being quoted on here are mad in my view unless they are for something very special.
We had quotes for an IDENTICAL kitchen form various suppliers. Same doors and carcasses from the same suppler. Prices ranged for 6k to 15k. For the SAME THING. Unbelievable.
