    hey guys, while picking up my son at nursery today I was asked to do a job which I'm unsure of how to price. It would involve a full house clean on a detached 4 bed house with conservatory. By full clean I mean, sofits/fascias, gutters (in and out) windows and frames and full conny clean!

    Said I would go and price the job for her, if she contacts me but would like a rough idea of a cost for the full thing before I go.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    How long you think it will take times the price you want per hour, maybe add an hour on top to make sure and add in travel costs etc.

    Similar type of house with similar sized conny, was going to price it all in at £150 but didn't know if I was being greedy or selling myself short. Think it would be an all day job.

    You'd be wanting £150 for just the S/F/G IMO.

    £150 just for some fsg tuffers? And you called me expensive :p I'd probably be around £80 for fsg (£1p/m and takes me around 2hrs), £20 for windows if regular, maybe £60-80 for connie roof depending on how dirty it is, so say £180 all in. But seeing as you only charge a fiver up there for windows, I'm guessing your fsg and connie prices will be lower too...? Pricings wierd, some have lower window prices but high fsg/connie roofs etc, some vice versa, some a mixture. Best just to do what diwrnach said and work out how long x by your hourly rate. I'd say 5hrs would do it all for me :thumbsup:

    That would cost her my day rate of £250 and then I can relax, work at a leisurely pace and ensure I take time to do a thorough job on it.
