    Did a soffit, facia & first clean on this, he didn't want gutters doing but now he does I got £150 for the clean but if I had done gutters at same time it probably would of been £175. Next window clean is £40 if I make it £65 does that seem OK. Gutters are metal so no idea how long they'll take. 1457207164527.jpg £25 seems low for gutters as a separate job

    Your first price and ongoing price for windows (£40) seems fine - assuming back is standard house. £25 way to low to clear out all the guttering.

    wash em down, when he saw the finished soffits etc he said he wished he asked for gutters as well but i'd packed up & had somewhere else to be so i said best wait till i'm doing the windows again, its just £65 seems a lot but £25 extra for all the gutters seems cheap, house is an L shape at the back so not just a straight length

    Always include cleaning the external guttering in with cleaning fascias and soffits Simon.

    Pointless doing F+S without G. Learn from this one and make sure you quote for FSG next time.

    Next time if they say ok don't want gutters done, say no probs, the price is still £175.
