Hi chaps, ive been asked to quote to clear the roof valley gutters on some industrial warehouse units. They need doing as a one-off and then customer wants them maintaining every 2-3 months...They have a H&S officer on site, and am a safety conscious person so want to make sure everything is safe for me to proceed with the work. Ive got the camera up there and there is standing water in the valleys (cant see much else) and debris collected around the downpipes. My method would be to access the roof at a safe place with secured ladders, shift all the muck to the downpipe end of the valleys and have a second operator to vac it up from the ground. Use roof ladder to assend and decend the roof at the apex and repeat. For areas inaccessible to vac, bucket and trowel it to an accessible place and vac the bucket out. A couple of questions: How can you tell if the valleys can be walked on? Has anyone got any thoughts on the above, or experience of similar? Do i need any qualifications to be working on the roof in the first place? Ive thought about scaffold towers / platforms etc, but someone still needs to walk along the vallys to clear them... I also need to quote for their office buildings which can be done with the vac, so dont want to pass on the industrial units as will likely losethem both... Thanks in advance!
I haven't been in the window cleaning trade for too long but I've been asked to quote for two large offices, one of which has around 65 large windows plus many more internal windows. Now I know most people quote based on how long its going to take them e.g £30-50 an hour, this obviously takes experience, something I don't have right now!! So just looking for a bit of advice on how long you reckon It'll take me to clean and how much I should charge for this. Many thanks!
