Prices - Quotations & Estimates

We are always happy to give either quotations or estimates for our double glazing, doors & porches. What, you may well ask, is the difference? The answer may surprise you! An estimate is just that, an estimate of what something might, or even probably will cost. But beware, the legal definition of a contract based upon an estimate allows for extra costs to be added for any 'unforeseen' or 'extra' items during the work being carried out. These potential additional items and costs would be your problem, payable by you. So, beware of entering into a contract based upon an estimate. Especially if it is with a builder as part of larger building works. Within the building trade, this is a well known ploy used by the unscrupulous to put in low estimates and undercut other prices. Once they have the job and it is underway, you may find it very difficult, if not impossible, to get the job finished without having to pay for 'extras.'

A quotation, by comparison, is an offer to carry out and complete specific work for a fixed sum. If you enter into a contract based upon a quotation, then the contractor is legally obliged to complete the work at the agreed (contracted) price, irrespective of any 'unforeseen' or 'extra' items that may come up. (see note on quality & service page for full details)

In practise, we do not enter into contracts based upon estimates; unless they are for very small straightforward jobs, or for existing customers or for where the work has been specified by an architect or other expert. Having said that, many of our contracts start off as estimates!


Estimates
We provide estimates every day based upon sizes, designs, etc, that are given to us by telephone, email or fax. If you would like an estimate, please consult our guide page.

If our estimate is of interest, then we can come and check the details and confirm it as a quotation. Usually, the estimated price is correct. On the rare occasion that it is significantly different, then you have not committed yourself and you can think about things and always get other quotes before making your final decision.

We have noticed that the process from a customer first contacting us, through estimating & quoting to placing an order, often takes weeks or months. Occasionally, even a year or more! This is especially true when people are seeking an estimate, or guide price, for double glazing for a possible new property purchase or major refurbishment involving other works. We know that our approach may appear very laid back compared to other replacement window suppliers, but it works for us!


Quotations
In order to provide a quotation, we need to visit the property to confirm designs & specifications, check for anything unusual or out of the ordinary, and take measurements. If the job is straightforward, we can often give you a price there and then. If it is more complicated or there are several alternatives to be priced, then we can come back to you by telephone, fax, letter or email. This process and our ethical sales policy is fully detailed under Sales & Marketing Policy.


Contact Us
So, if we can be of help, please do not hesitate to contact us. Whether you just need a rough guide price for one window or door, or a fully detailed specification & quotation for a whole houseful of windows and doors, friendly and professional advice is just a 'phone call away.

Don't be shy, we're here to help!
