    So I spent yesterday doing a builders clean on a new extension at a local hotel.

    13 Ground floor windows like this with the bars covering them and two more floors of windows that just needed WFP. 39 windows total.

    The downstairs was a PITA due to being literally covered in mortar as shown in the pics. The upper levels no issue.

    I put in a price of £180 and almost had my hand bitten off. Took me 5 hours to do so I figured £30 per hour plus £30 for costs (fuel, replacement applicator sleeve etc)

    Now it has been said on here before that builders wont pay out good money for builders cleans but I have never found that to be the case. I have always found good money in builders cleans so don't really know why so many turn them down. Sure it is propper graft compared to a maintanance clean but we have to work sometimes ;)

    Hi Green, read your interesting post about how to get commercial shop work via taking the building front pic and using it within a quote! Will be doing that for sure.

    How do you go about getting builders work like this?is there any little tricks that make it more likely to go ahead? Thanks.
