    So priced a three story house today. Fifteen pvc Georgian style windows and very small conservatory. Very easy access recon half hour to do. I said £25 outside 25 inside. Customer literally shook my hand done he said. Two other quotes he got. One at 40 outside 50 in. The other one. Apparently £200 in and out. I think my price is fair even if it takes a bit longer first clean. What do you guys think?

    Mate as long as you are happy that's all that matters.

    I aim for £40 per hour so if you are pulling £25 for 30 mins that's sound in my book.

    should be £60 for insides as they will take a lot longer than you think .

    Inside price will be the killer. £25 for outside sounds good. depends if its a new build/old build etc.

    I have a new build with like 25 windows £15 and takes all of 12 minutes.

    Think I will go 1.5 x inside in future. Only done a few in and out so far. Honestly wonder how some customers actually know,there windows have been cleaned. The insides are miging. Thinking as I have added it as a extra service on all payment slips. Any of them asking will be double the outside cost.

    I did get Cought out on a bungalow in and out. Cleaned it Trad for a year with pervious windi. Extentions and a conservatory. Happily agreed to do insides thinking 20 mins. Turns out it's a chalet bungalow. Upstairs and valux in every one. I never noticed. Luckily I hadn't given a price. So only lost time not £.

    I charge the same for the insides as the outsides
    Doesn't take any longer if you use some sort of degreaser in your solution like ubik or something
    Cuts out all the effort needed
    If they are bad i applicate and give a quick scrub with a green kitchen scourer then squeegee off..takes a couple of seconds per window to do
