thanks m8 its realy good stuff that ubik ,yea nuffin worse than pricing a job an then it take longer than u thault
smart job tench
May I ask how much did You charge? A have something similar next week and they want good price...?
If they are after the cheapest price then good luck with that one.
Myself I prefer to upsell the quality of my deep cleaning services I offer rather than sell on price alone. Some conservatory roofs can take no time at all and others can take hours to deep clean properly. I've been caught out too many times thinking a job is going to be easy then found out it was a real pig to do especially the pointy bits due to access issues. Conseratories come in all shapes and sizes and some are very awkward to do so I price alot higher than others would do. After saying that I must be doing something right as I still get plenty of work.
Be carfull using ubik or virosol as can sometimes stain plastic a cream colour which is a pig to get off and is not good for self cleaning glass either. I prefer to use hot water first either tap or pure from the van mount hot water heater. Then if need be use chems/cream cleaners, magic sponges etc for detailing. I also check and clear the downspout, guttering also roof gulleys and box gutters if applicable. Then clean the outside of the gutters etc and would also price up as an extra on a quote if they want the sides deep cleaned aswell which most do on a one-off deep clean.
It is a beginning for me so I do not want to charge much more then the others but That customer knows me for quality so They should not be too tight however it is still very competitive business. They do not want me to do gutters inside only face of them.
