    I have just done these.

    My question to you all is how long do you think it would take to remove masonry paint scats and drips/runs from the glass and frames (9 windows,upvc 2 glass panels and one patio door on each) on these four properties. They are all new build and in a row.

    And how much would you charge?

    I will tell you how long it took me and what I charged after I have seen your responses.

    A pic would have been nice but sounds like a lazy hour per house so £40 per house for me so £160

    (I expect me to take 25 - 35 mins per house not an hour but will still charge that anyway)

    As Tuffers question - that's for external only)

    Before and after pics would be helpful too.

    I suck at blind quoting, I like to look at the place and get a feel for it. As a rough price maybe £30-£35 each?

    Sorry about the pics. I didn't think about it at the time.

    It took me a day and half. I charged £250.

    I have no idea how you can do them so fast Green It was hard work, I must be out of practice. :(

    I did roughly 40 of these inside and out recently and it took me 8 hours. I was having to work round painters too, so was cleaning after they had sanded some windows while they were on a break etc. One thing I did notice is that they all shot off home at 4pm on the dot, while I worked for as long as I could to get the job done. Bunch of skivers!

    Why don't they leave the protective film on the glass until they are finished?
