I told you here all about our bird’s eye window in our bathroom and that during the renovation we are adding 2 more.
When I asked our contractor how much the 24 inch diameter round windows cost on the pricing sheet the answer was $1300 each. So naturally I went to work searching the internet for round windows. I was happy to use a used window.
No such luck. Then on Ebay I found a vendor of specialty windows in New England. The 24 inch round window is $635. The wagon wheel grill another $125.
And the interior trim is $145. That’s $905 per window, a savings of $395 per window.
While talking to the salesman I asked if there was a discount for ordering 2. He said he would give me the 5% that he allows contractors. I said great and before the conversation was ended he offered a 6% refund so the price for 2 round windows is actually $1702 with free shipping and no sales tax.
I’ve been getting a lot of mileage lately just asking for a discount.
