    We intend to renovate our 1930s 3 bed semi, nothing was changed from when it was originally built, it’s in disrepair and needs total modernization.
    Before contracting a local business we would like to understand the cost and work involved.

    We have very little understanding of building and don’t want to get unfairly charged.
    We would like to have a good idea of the work that will have to be done and the costs.

    It would be extremely helpful if someone can help us create a breakdown, specifically:
    -labour
    -materials
    -work involved

    Here’s an overview:
    We need to replace the windows on the front and side of the house with double glazing.
    The existing timber frames are all rotten.
    We want to replace it with a total of 20 UPVC windows in various shapes and sizes.


    Thank you in advance,
    C

    What type of windows do you have now ie sash or casement and what type do you want them replacing with.
    I doubt you would get a breakdown for labour and materials, I know I don't.

    You show us the prices you have along with the specifications and we will tell you whether we think they are high or low.

    Get 3 or 4 estimates, or get some recommendations (Maybe from Local Council)
