All depends on the customer i suppose smurf, some are tighter than others, dont think many would go over a ton.

You also need to have a good reputation for doing quality work to win higher priced jobs.

A most importantly the bottle to quote high as is dangerous work as many will undersell their services.

Nice job tolish, dont know what the prices are in your part of the country, but in London i reckon anything between 70 and a ton for the job, depending on the state of things.

Cheers mate. The gutters worked out at about 125 and as he is a window cleaning customer I timed it in with the monthly window clean too, so all in it was £150. It was a good days work, there was not much in the gutters, mainly just the blocked downspouts, and the facias had just been painted so that was easy to clean. Hes always been a good customer so its worked out well for all concerned.

Thanks & no as they look like yanky shite to me.

 

Did you take any pics on what was in the guttering when you took the anglian gutter guards off?

Thing i have in my mind when giving a price is the massive eastern european community in London, honest them lot will work for nixys, you quote 100 they will go 50, so have to be mindful of that as well when pricing round here, we lost a few cleans in the past to Polish cleaners who were undercutting a 15 pound clean to 7 pound, its the same everywhere i know, but in a city of 11 million people, its a dog eat dog city.

I'm not interested what others might charge myself as my price is what it is so they can take it or leave it as is no skin off my nose so to speak.

Yeah understand where your coming from smurf, thing is just starting over again i can't be choosy and have to compete with others and try and give the cheapest price i can. hopefully one day will be able to be more picky,

 

And on your name, have a friend who is named smurf, his name is Sean Murphy, hence smurf:)

My mum's boyfriend was a roofer which was always done professionally

but when it was quiet we did everything

When i was 15 i could skim walls

Replace rotten bit of wooden windowsill(sometimes with p38 car body filler lol)

Dovetail joints etc

Did cdt and design com at school also which is designing then making stuff

Made a wooden half pipe for skateboards for an exam

Slightly small but worked

That stayed up for a couple of years after i left as my younger brother used to play on it

I think I'll be ok

 

Plus i can run fast when it all goes wrong..heehee

 

Got kicked out of design tech at school, bit of a bad influence the reason ha ha. thing is i was round my sister's house in Kingston little while back, thought the old man next door looks familiar. turns out he was the teacher who booted me out. i hold no grudges and reminded him of it, he found it highly amusing. said i was one of the most difficult kids he teached.

 

Erm now i know why i am a window cleaner ha ha. hated school was in the bad boys class, with about 15 others, no girls allowed, just us disruptive lot, still i grew up and turned into a good boy, honest, he says in a high pitched voice.

I got 9 gcse passes.all good grades but only because i winged it big time

Used to bunk as much as I could and reckon detention is where i learnt the most

I have a bit of a photographic memory which helps as I don't forget what i get taught

My son has mild aspergers and all his symptoms match me to a tee

Think that's why i am good at the hands on and techy stuff

In my day they were called "O" Levels but so called GCSE's are like CSE's so not so good:p

 

They replaced both O levels and CSE's.
