Hi

Just after advice,was just reading about arrests made locally to me of window cleaners operating without a licence(had never heard of window cleaning licence)

I don't actually do windows just guttering and fascia boards

Do I need a licence for this?Im Going to start doing Connie roofs in the next couple of months but have no I intention of doing windows tbh

Anyone know the score?

Sounds a bit of a grey area to me as surely you wash down the windows afterwards or at least use trad/rag them down?

 

Same goes with conservatory cleaning as what are you going to say if you get asked to clean the windows or glass roof "sorry I can't as I've not got a lic to clean them"

 

If it was me I would contact your local Scottish council to confirm if you need a lic or not but as window cleaning is part of my job I would have to bite the bullet and get one.

 

I personally think it’s ridiculous as they only brought it in to cut down on house burglaries and scams so anyone walking about with a ladder they think is a scumbag up to no good.

Neil what council area are you, if you don't clean windows you will not need a window cleaning licence. I have 2 licences because I work in 2 different council areas about £140 for 3 years per licence. But you are not cleaning windows.

Don't do windows but will have to rinse down now and then if using chems on guttering

Just a thought that crossed my mind so that means that every trade that has to give a window quick clean after work has been completed needs a window cleaning licence, joiners, glaziers, gutter cleaners, facia fitters and cleaners, etc, that just doesn't seem right.

That the daft thing as if you work on the boarders of 2 councils or more you have to apply for a lic to work in each area. Then some councils you don't need a lic at all as they can't afford to administer it. :confused:
