    Talked to a windy the other day real friendly guy who was shocked I do my own windows as his thinking was he likes to keep an eye on what's going on with pricing when his own house windows go up in price so does his customers

    The guy I bought the van set up off said he did his own windows but his wife was over the moon when he wanted to do a demo lol

    This is purely curiousity

    Why would any window cleaner pay to have another window cleaner clean his house :D

    My own windows I clean when I feel like it,...needless to say they are sparkling clean at lest twice a year :lol:

    I rarely do mine, Last time I did them was months ago. I only did them cause I was trying out new equipment even now I dont do them when Ive got new stuff to try out.

    I clean windows all day last thing I want to do on a day of or after ive finished work is clean more windows lol.

    Just recently moved house but at my last house we had a window cleaner. Reason being he was doing em well before I started cleaning windows and I owed him loads of money so didn't wanna cancel him incase he asked for it
