Can anyone give me an indication if this is a reasonable quote or not.

I have 2 arched double glazed windows (in wood frames).
Each window is about 2'6 wide and about 4' wide.


The seals have gone on both of them.

to replace both windows (not the frames)

as they're arched I presume they're not standard

all in for £300

Is this a fair price.

What glazing are you having? Are they toughened units? With any georgian bar etc?

Sounds a little over-priced if it is just standard clear glass.. the curving charges are approximately £20 maximum, install shouldn't cost more than about £25 a unit.. the units themselves about £60 each...

I think you could shave at least £50 - £70 off that!

A proper job to glaze into timber windows would be more than £25 labour. The old putty/butyl needs to be stripped off, the rebate cleaned, the beads cleaned of any putty/butyl then the new piece bedded into some fresh butyl.
