External insulation pricing - window area included in price?

    We are about to get external insulation applied to our house. The builder has taken measurements to know how many square metres of insulation is required. I noticed that the surface area for the windows wasn't subtracted from the overall surface area of the house. I queried him on this, saying that I didn't think that was correct - why pay for insulation for the windows area when there will be no insulation there, but he told me this is the way all the contractors price the work for external insulation.

    Doesn't seem right to me... can anyone confirm if this is a standard way of pricing the external insulation?
