    Hello Caz,
    Well good as ever to hear from you , If you can tackle taking up laminate flooring ,The blind is well within your capabilities , been much the same with the bride this end seeing her wielding a hammer is enough for me the drill is locked away for now !!!, Not that it is my trade, but I think your quote isn't far out in today's prices ,and yes kids are treasures to have around but know what your saying , and if you resort to getting the sisters around, be the the Gaffa and delegate all the difficult jobs to them showing you have complete faith in them ?.

    Regards
    Pete

    I have worked in window sales most of my life, I ended up selling American and Canadian windows to rich and famous.
    But with the uPVC industry they are all struggling at the moment, so you should be able to get a good deal, do not tell them what your budget is, its so easy for the to extract this information, just tell them you have a budget for windows and if their quote does not come within that budget they will not get the order if it does then they can have the order, this works because I had Anglian windows and his first price was way off and after he gave me his relations discount it came well within my budget, they later came back to quote for the Facia and Soffets and the same thing happened, so all our windows and doors are done and so is the Facia and Soffit's.
    PS
    Depending on your property if it is a conventional Brick build the window company should use Fisher Fixings, to secure the windows and doors.

    If your property is timber framed the they should use non corrosive screw's to secure the windows and doors.

    I would only use a company that has been around for at least 10 years, and of some repute, are they going to come out when you have an issue, due they have service engineers, or is just the fitter who did not do job correctly the first time.

    If you have a larger budget then is much more choice than just uPVC there are several American window companies trading in the UK that sell wooden windows clad on exterior with aluminium, they also can supply bi Folding door Curved Patio and Bi Folding doors, available in all different wood species like Oak, Douglas Fir, Clear Pine, ext.

    Hi Kool,

    My map of Buckinghamshire doesn't show a coast line. How did you manage your photo angle?

    Hi Max,

    Remember, any home adaptations necessary due to MND are VAT exempt, like Barry said.

    Nice windows!
