Are you crazy?

We got an estimate for some work to be done:

1 small kitchen window replaced

1 window cut out and installed (new window, nothing there right now)

1 side door replaced, nothing fancy

1 front door replaced, specific door chosen, NOT the really high end, but nice

$10,000.  Yeah, we won't be going with that company.  We can get a door for $800 and have someone install it for us for probably about $500.  And we can get our contractor to replace the window.

I think the salesperson saw that we have improved the property a lot (you can tell what is new) and just saw $$$.  We are not in NEED of everything.  We have doors and windows, gouging us with high prices will NOT get you the job.

That sounds like a home store estimate. Goodluck finding a better contractor.
