I agree, huge mark up. Thats why I favour the middle ground.

Sorry should have said 450.

This is what he charges on average per window. Obviously give or take depending on size, openings, colour etc.

We had ours replaced only last week.
We had four quotes with 3 ranging from 5000 to 6000, one company quoted 10000, this was for 9 windows and 3 doors (2 external and 1 internal porch). One of the windows was huge.
We went for the middle quote based on recommendation and ended up invoiced at 300 less than the quote.
As for the expensive quote which we disregarded straight away, the company sent a letter saying they had a 40% off sale so could reduce the original quote to 6000, bringing that company to around the same cost. We still disregarded as we felt that it was a con compared to the other companies.
Like others have said I would get a number of quotes, remove the outliers and focus on similar, then if you can go with recommendation rather than the cheapest.
