    If your sub contracting then no. Be very cautious when doing this... The other window cleaner could steal your work...

    As long as he's insured and if you have risk assessment maybe tweak it then there shouldn't be a problem.
    Only fro personal experience had this on a school I do and got help.
    The facilities manager was fine with it.
