    Hi,

    I have been given GRP roof quote back in July. I have contacted the guy again and he said the insulation price has recently gone up by 20%! so I have to charge you more on insulation.

    Is this normal?

    Thanks

    Prices have went up a fair bit because a lot of suppliers are running out of materials due to COVID.

    Likely he was 20% under on his quote.

    It's the same price at my merchants as it has been all year.

    Whats 20% on a few boards/packs anyway - £5 per board/pack ?

    He obviously feels he can not carry the increase/error .

    Our suppliers usually do give a bit of notice of looming price increases though.

    I guess its up to you, not happy vote with your feet
