Roof quote, is this reasonable?

have had a quote for roof work:

• To remove both valleys at front of property
• Replace valleys with pre moulded aluminium ones
• Replace tiles either side of each valley and cement tiles against new valleys
• Remove top ridge and fit a lead apron and replace ridge
• Fit 2x lead ends to valleys to prevent water coming in to soffits
• Parapet wall needs galvanized stops against lead flashings approximate 10metres long then the complete parapet wall needs a water prove render 2x coats to strengthen wall due to poor condition of the brick work
• Rear valley needs attention
• Gutters will be cleaned through to allow good flow of waste water

The roof is in good condition apart from the above but my main concern is the parapet wall as it is in very poor condition.
The price will include materials and labour and reckon it will take 2 days to complete.

What would be a reasonable price to pay for the above works?
Cheers in advance for any help.

Thanks gents, hillarious! So the £1300 quid quote is by far cheaper, even though it does not include a holiday!
