Hi, 

 

Has anybody got any recent quotes from Norrsken or Rationel Aura Plus windows? We are looking at 45 sq m of glazing and need them to be alu timber clad and triple glazed. Trying to work out supply and fit price per metre. 

 

Also, what sort of lead times were given to you? 

 

Appreciate any help!

@Russell griffiths - Thank you. How long have you had Norrsken? Are you able to give me a rough idea of how much did it cost you from a per sq mtr price?

I can't help with up to date figures but I too am about to seek some prices for Rationel for our sun room windows.

 

Last time, when we bought the windows for the main part of the house, Rationel won on price hands down compared to any of the other quality window suppliers that bothered to quote.

@Rainmaker cannot help with prices, I have absolutely no idea how many m I have, I had a budget and they came in under budget with better spec glass than I thought I would get, so I bought them. 

They have been in since January, but we are not in the house yet, I fitted them myself apart from the lift n slide door, and I wish I had done that as they charged me £2000 to fit that and a big triangle window

the fitters where nice lads, I just didn’t like spending £2000 for one days work.

Hi,

 

My Rationel Aura Plus quote inc. fitting works out at £551.95 per m for 38m2 of windows alone. They were also quoting for a sliding door and a front and back door, so maybe the price per m2 for glazing alone might be slightly higher if there was less in the job for them.

 

Thanks, Rob.

@ProDave

Know it well,  we had a friend there and we used to take the kids paddling in the ford when they were small, they are in their 20's now so you were probably there at the time.

I wanted the Highlands but the boss won with D&G, that and the midges.

@Russell griffiths

Windows - I too hated paying over 3K for four blokes and a spider crane for a day to lift my windows into position so I can now level and seal them, but it seems to be the going rate. I suppose you are also paying for them to take the risk of breakages.

@Rainmaker sorry no modern social meeedya stuff, yours looks a big project, good luck.

Yes in the summer we used to swim in the river at the ford.  I have yet to find a river up here warm enough to swim in.  I wonder who your friends are?  PM if you want to.

I lived there from 1990 to 2003

Thanks.

Kloeber have quoted me £8500 + VAT for a 2.5 x 2.1 slider with one fixed pane. That is a very large difference

When I got my initial quoted for house windows (not the sun room windows I am now dealing with) the most expensive quotes were > 2 times the cheapest,  and there was no reason to it as the most expensive quote I got, others have had reasonable quotes from.

It is all rather interesting, to say the least. I assume thats through your local Rationel distributor?
