Windows Question

How much would it cost to take out a bedroom window and replace with french windows?

Thanks for the response everyone. We are in a ground floor flat, the bedroom window looks out over the side return, so we would like to take the window out (it is almost a floor to ceiling window)put some french windows in, and have a small decking area to walk on to with a couple of steps down on to the side return.

You havent given any sizes, and you probably would need planning, you will also need a juliet balcony as its a big drop down if you walk out of the door.
Unless its a bungalow.

Depending on how much knocking out of bricks is required, if it is French Doors in upvc that you require I would estimate around £975.00

I presume we are talking about a bungalow here? you should post a job on this site to get several quotes fromtradespeople in your area, if the window is the same wigth as the french doors then the brickwork would have to be removed down to floor level, the window should have a lintel in place but needs to be checked, if the french doors are to be wider than the window this is a bigger job as you would probably have to fit a bigger lintel, To remove the window and brickwork and fit french doors should cost about £250-300,regards Terry.
