My 6 windows including a bay, new back door plus changing a window for french doors were done in 2001 and cost 6500 here in Chelmsford. A small local company who did a perfect job.

I got a quote from Anglian Windows at the same time as - 11,000 plus and gradually they brought it done to 6,000. I told them where to go. 🤬

17 years later the same local company knocked through a solid wall and put in a new window, 1,100 and again a great job.

Very high mark up on UPVC windows and doors and they don't cost much to make (I do accept that the quality can vary). I've installed some smaller upvc windows myself and upvc french doors. I've also replaced the blown sealed window units myself (usually very easy to do). I was quoted around 280 with vat to replace a large sealed unit in my front room (ground floor) and I bought the unit myself and took the old one out and fitted the new one in around an hour, and it cost me about 75 for the sealed unit.
