    Good job :thumbsup:. How do you lads who offer pressure washing find the time between window cleaning? Fair play, but the storing of all the gear and all that mess puts me off.

    I agree a bit here
    Infact I've lost little interest in pressure washing
    Last year I was solid working sat and sun and late evenings
    It was actually a welcome change from being on the glass
    This year I'm actually turning away jobs lying and saying fully booked
    It's messy and hard graft
    Windows is simple
    Much more stress
    Another thing is a provided aftercare leaflets with every job and a year on getting calls saying weeds coming back

    Looks like a dream job that, lovely big slabs with good pointing, with my set up I would hammer that in no time at all, in fact it would be embarrassing how quick that would be.

    Just noticed that half clean pic, you used turbo on the lot? would of took all day then I reckon.

    With the rotary it would be pretty much the same as mowing a lawn.

    Honestly? time is a big struggle right now, working 6 day weeks (was 7 but **** that, makes me ill with my heart I can't work like that these days) seriously looking at how to split the business in two because its getting close to full time with both windows and pressure washing, people are having to wait 4 weeks for pressure washing jobs and getting 2-3 weeks behind on windows.

    It might be messy but the money is a lot better than windows, I prefer to do a £200 driveway in 4hrs than clean windows on 15 houses.
