    Agree lol. That photo window was atlantica
    Cost a bomb. But I bought it before the build like a mug. Don't get me wrong I love the window.
    But when my builder did my other window.
    I fell through the floor. When he told me what it cost. That's when I realised I had been a mug. Haha. Live and learn

    Yeh they quoted my nephew nearly 4 grand for his window, It cost me less than 500 quid including bespoke stainless steel frame, and took about 3 hours to cut block out and install

    Its who you know as well lol. That counts for a lot lol. That is some saving on that quote Steve. Good on you.
    My four sons all know lots of contacts.
    But it was all after the lord mayors show.
    So to speak. I went mad at them when they started quoting this and that. Reason they all went over my plans. And not once did they say I will get you this or that dad.
    The positive that came out of it. Is now when doing stuff on the house I am right on that phone to them. And save loads now.
    But I ain't seen nothing that beats koi tax.
    Only maybe mortgage tax .

    curved besides costing more, will also distort the view, depending on the degree of curve and most likely annoy you
