    Seems like i am gradually weaning myself off windows
    I have 3 full weeks work a month at the mo but have been hammering the gutter fascia and conny cleaning as it seems popular round here
    Thinking not to bother getting more window work as have made more from that this week
    Just need to make a trolley and quadruple my prices and i will be smurf number 2

    I can see the appeal of your line of work mate
    Very lucrative
    Just don't know about when the spring comes
    Getting most of my work now from recommendations and people i know due to the shite weather and full gutters etc
    Will have to sort a website etc

    If I could guarantee the work I'd jack the windows in
    More hassle

    I can work for my mate anytime i want driving
    Am getting seriously tempted to only do windows if it is part of the bigger job
    No problem with doing windows..been doing it as long as i can remember
    Just like the thought of less jobs for good money

    In a perfect world we all want more money for less work , if you have a big catchment area then go for it ..

    I would happily travel.to the surrounding towns for that sort of job
    Not much over 20 miles to london for me and 4 towns within 10 minute drive from mine
    Tbh Hertfordshire isn't that big but lots of medium size towns
