    Hi folks

    Does any of you include window sill and frame painting among your services? Does it work for you well - and what are the pros and cons of such a service add-on? And last but not least, how do you price it?

    Not a chance. I really have zero interest in being an odd job man. I am a cleaner of windows, gutters, connys, patios etc. Thats enough without messing about with 'handyman' tasks.

    Likewise, it's all the filling and sanding that's a pain. Pass it on to a mate.
