    Hello everyone, I'm just starting out with window cleaning trad. So first of all let me say thanks for taking the time to read this! My main question for you is how do I go about pricing up houses (front, front and back, exterior and interior), I've heard different things from £s per window or per hour but still remain confused. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

    Welcome :)

    Where are u from? Prices are different all over :) im up north and a average 3 bedroom house my way i do for 3 kwid the more south u go... The more expensive

    I price via time

    I want to earn 20 kwid per hour so if a house takes me 20 mins to do ill charge 7 pound

    So 3 houses in 1 hour = 21 kwid
