Forum Title: Window Replacement Quote Questions
I received a voice mail msg. today from a property management company that I did some work for this past summer. They are asking me to provide a quote for replacing a couple of bedroom windows in one of their properties. Now, I don't know that size of the windows but they are probably somewhere between 24 x 36 to 36 x 48 (at the most). The area the house is in is an older area. Also, I don't know if the exterior of the house is brick or siding (probably brick) so there is an element of the unknown to this. Having never quoted window replacements I have a few question that hopefully some here can help with: 1. Would quoting a price of say 2 to 2 1/2 times all the material costs seem reasonable? 2. Would you charge a higher percentage of overhead if the windows have to be custom ordered? (I'm guessing they will be since the homes in the area are 50+ years old) 3. Are there unknowns/surprises that I should look for when it comes to doing replacement windows? I realize that different businesses/areas have different pricing formulas and that no one can give me specific prices, considering I haven't provide the exact details of the job. I'm just looking to have as much information as possible before I go to do the quote. Thanks in advance.
