    Sorry no photo, roof needs cleaning as an add on, do I just use tap water then finish with pure water and use old brush? Also, How much for 7 or eight panels 2 metres by 1 and half metres?

    As much as you want to earn..take in to account the pvc and finials etc will all take time
    Decide how much you want to earn per hour and think how long it will take you then do the sums..then add 30 minutes as you never guess correctly
    That's how i do it anyway
    Average full conny exterior clean is gonna be a couple hours work if not used to doing them

    £50000'0000000 per panel, of course you can knock off a little for cash.

    You have to know your hourly rate, mine is £40, so if it's going to take an hour (or part there of) then it's £40, if 2 hours hen £80 and so on.

    The glass is completely clear so I guess finish with pure after using old brush and then pure. Will quote her between £20-30 say it depends on how long it will take

    Do people use there normal glass brush on dirty jobs like conservatories, fascias? And when you have gunk on the brush, do you always clean it off before using it on glass?

    Slippy you will regret quoting such a low price, glass conny roofs are an absolute nightmare to get clean, they are hard to rinse off, and always take ages, (unless it's a really steep roof)

    Your gonna want to charge a lot more, it also uses a heck of a lot of pure water mate, defo go £50 minimum, I would say more like £70-£80

    I don't have a massive supply of pure as I work mostly trad with a backpack for stuff I can't access. Conservatory roofs I usually mop and squeegee on a pole then rinse with tap water from the backpack or pure if it's glass. Last one I did for fifty should have been at least twenty more.
