    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

    £30 or there abouts a side on a normal semi. Depends if the customer drives a Porsche or a Mondeo really. Virosol used diluted on the plastic makes the job so much quicker :thumbsup:

    I just got of the phone and booked in a small 3 bed detached for £140. Mind you that was for clearing the gutters aswell.

    Another two earlier today booked in over the phone was for £95 just to clean the ouside of the guttering, facias & soffits. The other one was for £120.

    There is good money to be had if you get the price right as some jobs can be pigs to do. :)

    reading Smurf 's prices, i think it's different when someone calls up for a quote and when an existing customer asks, personally I wouldn't go as high with a loyal customer
