    I looked at a historical house today. It is two storey. Every window is leaded and old. There are 70 windows of various sizes. Easy access and they want two cleans a year.

    I can't make up my mind on this one. Any thoughts?

    Always careful with them old original lead windows. Id have a good close look, and if it looked like any of the glass had the remotest chance of breaking away from the lead work, I wouldn't touch it.

    That's difficult to answer without pictures.
    Id estimate roughly how many hours, multiply by £35, then add a score for fuel

    It's exterior only, and no gutter cleaning.

    Them original lead work windows can leak quite badly between the glass and lead. I turn down my controller when doing them.
    If I'm honest, I absolutely hate them
