I am being quoted a 54% increase by Home Depot for Sequel wood windows for precisely the identical set of 13 windows installed by my condo neighbor in 2009. Could such an increase me possible? What can I do to get the Home Depot to get closer to the price my neighbor paid? This is being asked to pay $20930 as opposed to $13,587 ! A huge gap!
Thank you so much

Differently and justifiably so

As a contractor the new regime in power feels anyone in business is a bottomless pit and can afford to give employees unlimited paid vacations, sick days,personal days,holidays, free medical, same retirement as civil servants or the thief's in the senate /congress 1 term retirement is costly.

Then there is the increase in taxes business, corporate,sales,real estate higher utility bills and of course fuel costs.

Remember FREE Food, Low cost or no cost housing is costing someone dearly to "SPREAD THE WEALTH"

When people scream someone cannot make a living with $12.00 an hour and then when a raise is given, don't you think this has to be passed on to the consumer?

Near me in NYC there was a toll on a bridge of .10 over 200%
NOW its over $2.00.

One day look at the taxes placed on gasoline and think about someone buying a new car paying the tax on it then the same person trades the car in buys a new car pays the tax on it and the dealership sells the old car (that already had the sales tax paid) and sells it again and collects sales tax on the same car that was already paid for

As long as people allow an out of control government to spend recklessly with no accountability on how many or how much they spend on vacations and other perks prices will have to continue to rise
