    Been asked to do a single width shop front with door on side, 2 big panes on shop glass top, 2 at bottom, 2 panes on door, client wants inside and out, and maybe signage.

    What sort of cost as I normally only do residential.

    Was thinking of charging £30 as I need to park vehicle as there's no access and use trolley, it may be a one off.

    Thanks.

    Would it not be easier to just pull out the squeegee for such a small job?

    Just a thought a lot of shops don't want wfp as they don't want the windows left wet or lots of water outside.

    what i do is look closely, think it over carefully see if theres some kind of bonus you might get by doing this shop job. it needs to be mentioned before you strike the deal though

    the sort of thing i mean is a free haircut if its a barbers or free food if its a cafe , discount of some kind is essential
