    I`ll get some grief for this!

    Yes because he misses the one above conservatories and sloping roofs (maybe even the frosted glass) lol....

    If there like the houses about here you could easily do 30 in a day, the only problem is you cant charge 10.00 per house.

    i dont buy it, all window cleaners i chat to when im out claim silly things. its called letting the comp think your doing well. you wouldnt go round telling people your doing bad would you if you were. i always tell ppl im well busy if im not. means your in demand then.
    i think he does about 18-20 a day. i couldnt do 30 wfp a day if they were all together.

    If you did 3 an hour for 10 hours but I don't know many trad cleaners that work more than 6 hours a day. But 30 houses is do-able. Shouldn't really compare yourself to others as it is the quickest way to get you down.

    if there on the same street then yes, but if there all over the shop no chance!
    speed isnt everything, its one way to get a bad name when the quality of the job isnt that good. takes one person to destroy a business.
    if they were bungalows then yes.
    3 custys x 10 hours means he done 1 house every 20 mins. he has to be really fit. most homes have 10-15 windows ( ones i do have. )
    this also means he never stopped for food and drink because he had to start at 7am till 5pm. its only just started getting lighter at night aswell. not saying he did and not saying he didnt. were all open to an opinion aint we lol :D

    someone tell me my maths are **** lol :rolleyes: :lol:
