    For an average conservatory roof I usually charge around £40 for the roof and the gutters,

    But I'm starting to get a bit fed up of charging £40 when I could do 3 houses in half the time and make the same money, so I'm thinking of charging more! Yesterday I quoted a roof/gutters on a ladies conservatory and quoted £70. I thought the lady would be in shock at that, but to my suprise, she thought that was very reasonable!!

    Time to stop worrying so much about prices me thinks...!

    There not the easiest jobs, plus we have to take time out of the window cleaning to do them, so really I think I should be charging more, as it takes a while...

    I don't mind doing them in the heat, just use more water! Better than being freezing cold...

    I did one today for £90, an average sized one. I tend to clean the lot as I don't see the point of doing just the roof as it looks a half finished job. Try upwelling whole connys Jake and you can earn more wonga.

    Oh, and I had a Frank moment and knocked the crest off :D. Fortunately it was one that slides into place, so I waited for the owner to bugger off out and then got up there and put it back :whistle:

    Never takes me that long!

    Yeah I always do gutters as well as roof of the conny, never usually takes more than an hour and half though, depending on size...

    Just thought it was about time I upped the price, as could easily clean windows and make 40-50 in 90 odd mins...

    It's a rather a long story but the motto of the story is don't use a micrlight standoff on a conservatory roof. Oops! :D
