    i dont do that as im just starting out, and have seen that some soft wash treatment is generally required..
    but i was asked to day for a quote and said i would come back to them.... so how do you price a Fascia board and gutter clean.
    i thought about doing a test bit with just pure to see how bad it was...iv only been up and running a month and am quite happy sticking with glass for now, but i should not shy away from this sort of clean:hiding: whats a fair price per metre...

    soft washing is easy i am still a trad but i normally charge £50 a front and £50 a back. what you have to consider is how long it will take you and how much you can make them hours with normal windoiws

    I charge £25 a side, washing with pure works well enough. Low flow rate and give it a good scrub and a rinse off after.

    I love cleaning gutters and fascias. I could do them all day every day. I add a splash of ubik/virosol/whatever to my backpack full of regular tap water (no point wasting pure) and away I go. I find that a flocked sill brush is best. I don't charge per metre or anything like that. I tend to have a look and price depending on how I feel. Pricing starts at £50 for a typical three bedroom council house which takes less than an hour.
