    I have done many jobs on a Saturday, have even worked on a Sunday! I prefer not too but if the weather holds you back you sometimes need to do Saturdays or they won't get done until next month. I'm trying to take another man on ans bulk all my window work into 3 days a week, as weather very rarely gives us 5 full days to clean windows. Plus would either give me 4 day weekend or 2 days for PVC gutters or power washing

    I dont work saturdays unless absolutely necessary, but when i have done, i've never had any problems. I wouldnt worry about it mate, especially working those hours. If someone makes comment, just tell them that you are running late and trying to catch up.

    I'm new to this and all my customers are first cleans, done some on Saturday and Sunday, great way to pick up new customers as their neighbours see you and ask to have theirs done too.

    i prefer not to work saturdays but some times you have to the plus side is thers usually more people at home and you end up picking up a couple of new custies just dont start to early 9.30 is usually reasonable

    I've worked last to Saturdays and no prob. When I get to the area I'm working I look to see who's up and do them first. Start about 9
