Nice one Neil. Do you find it difficult getting all your jobs done at this time of the year what with bad weather and short days etc. I know I do.

The biggest quote I've ever done was for a 4 storey building. The price for the scaffolding alone came to £16,000. :D

The price on 2 of these blocks is £18,000 just for scaffolding lol

How much would you guys charge to clean the white gutters and fascias and clear the gutters on these 2 blocks all the way round? There will be scaffolding up so I will be able to do it all by hand.

I'd do it all from the ground and pocket the £18000......

 

I would take some money up front, buy a better gutter vac with camera, better wfp than my banana, have a ladder long enough for the downpipes if they are blocked.

Push comes to shove you can hire a cherry picker for about £150 for the day if you wanted to do downpipes safer than a ladder.

So why is the scaffolding already up and does it have a lift also around all the dorma windows so you can reach them by hand too?

Youd better make sure that they will let you go up on the scaffolding first!

Have a misunderstood? there is scaffolding up already that they will let you use, or the scaffolding will be just for you to do this job?

The job is going to have scaffold for me to do the job if I get it, it's not up yet. No access for cherry pickers round back and front only one side. The dormers don't need doing now

No chance with a gutter vac as the tiles are over hanging so much that the tool won't fit in and you wouldn't be able to do a proper job

The tool on my gutter vac is really narrow, if that can't fit in then neither can any crap lol

Scaffolding for 18 grand really can't be the answer..... surely? if it was higher then sure, but it aint that high.

Just hire one scaffold tower on wheels and push it round?

 

If you can get full scaffolding up, you can get a cherry picker in as well surely? the modern ones have a very small footprint.

That's the quote he has got all I'm fussed about is how much I should charge to clean and clear lol

There's small gates to get in to the back gardens and hedges in the way with walls and a gate to get through to the front, I've looked at all the access areas and there are none

Heavy scaffold tower on grass ? Will it not fuck the grass up when pushing it around?

Surely one window clean for £19000. :thumbsdown:

If the scaffolding is just for a window clean, they must be stupid.
