Unified-Inch Quoting Practice?
I just had one contractor come out and supply a quote for Simonton windows and he let me know that his approach for quoting was to compute "unified inches" (sum of all heights and widths) and multiply by a "dollar per inch" factor to come up with the quote.
I was a little surprised that it didn't matter if I wanted double hung or sliders or..., though I can see that the basis is directly related to inches of frame that need to be prepped and sealed.
Is this a usual practice in the industry?
Should this be raising red flags for me?
