    Any idea of the rough cost for replacing a bedroom window with a deeper window. The width will remain the same so assuming the lintel that is there will be sufficient. The window is just very shallow. Looking for labour cost only as the window will be supplied. Thanks.

    you would be better to get a window installer in to supply and fit post a picture of what you require

    thanks. It’s actually a house we were considering buying, the the window is really shallow. So can’t post a pic. But was just trying to see if we are talking hundreds or thousands to do something like this.

    Factor in building reg fees as well, it can't be self certified under the FENSA scheme

    It's a couple of days work tops for a jobbing builder. Most folks wouldn't bother with regs for this, and yes lintel will be fine.

    Until they come to sell and they come to B Control wanting a Regularisation Cert ASAP.
