    Hi there,

    I'm relatively new to window cleaning and I've been asked to give a quote about doing fascias and sofits aswell as all the windows. How do you quote for it?

    Lastly is there a specific way to clean them? I use the water fed pole.

    Thanks in advance

    David

    Soffits and Fascia's by themselves - I normally charge about £20-£25 per side of a 'normal' 4 bed house.

    Not sure on specific methods of cleaning, I'm quite new to WFP and have either used extendable pressure washing lance or done it by hand in the past. I have done one soffit and fascia clean since going WFP but it took ages - probably the brush I was using.

    I think Gardiners Sill brushes are good for them? Someone with more experience will advise.

    I did fascias and soffits yesterday, with gardiners sill brush. quoted 40, took me over an hour unfortunately, but still good, the sill brush was brilliant, i could reach in every little corner without having to change the angle on the brush
    I think when pricing any job, you have to think 'how long will it take?' that is how much could you earn if you were doing windows. on the other hand some wcs charge higher for things like fascia, gutters
