Fascia board and gutter clean

Recommended Posts

Dragbag

i dont do that as im just starting out, and have seen that some soft wash treatment is generally required..

but i was asked to day for a quote and said i would come back to them.... so how do you price a Fascia board and gutter clean.

i thought about doing a test bit with just pure to see how bad it was...iv only been up and running a month and am quite happy sticking with glass for now, but i should not shy away from this sort of clean:hiding: whats a fair price per metre...

soft washing is easy i am still a trad but i normally charge £50 a front and £50 a back. what you have to consider is how long it will take you and how much you can make them hours with normal windoiws

I charge £25 a side, washing with pure works well enough. Low flow rate and give it a good scrub and a rinse off after.

I love cleaning gutters and fascias. I could do them all day every day. I add a splash of ubik/virosol/whatever to my backpack full of regular tap water (no point wasting pure) and away I go. I find that a flocked sill brush is best. I don't charge per metre or anything like that. I tend to have a look and price depending on how I feel. Pricing starts at £50 for a typical three bedroom council house which takes less than an hour.

I use a spray nozzle fixed to the end of an old wfp pole and connect to backpack and spray screwfix degreaser and soap all over everything

Leave 10 minutes then quick scrub and rinse

An old spray bottle in your pocket with Ubik or cleaner of choice or even some bottles of Domestos spray from £1 world.

 

Wet the fascias with water, spray cleaner onto your wfp brush head, apply to gutters and fascias, rinse off.

 

Finish coffee, collect check, get on forum and brag about how much you made for an hours work. :))
