Difficult without seeing..def minimum of £20 a side tho so £80. I'd prob say £100 for that tho. Are u tradding it or wfp?

You should work out what you would be happy with for the amount of time it takes and charge that

eg. A 4 hour job needs to pay at least what 4 hours on the glass would

All my family are on the south coast and they can afford a decent price round that way..

Don't ask me as I get shot down by Tuffers all the time

 

what do you call reasonable size could end up being a mansion can't it cheapncheerful

 

The cheek of it :mad:

 

A rule of thumb, well my thumb. £1 per bracket to bracket on a gutter, so if it's S/F/G then £3 bracket to bracket on the gutter, plus a bit more if the price doesn't add up to a fair whack :)

I start at a £1 per metre as tuffers said bracket to bracket and thats for black gutters and white fascia soffit up another pound for white gutter..and up another if we spy them dreaded vents..or do a runner..

Have you thought about buying a backpack @daveyboy1, filling it with tap water and using a pole and chems. Don't know if you've done any with a conny in the way, but it makes life easier :thumbsup:

Wouldn't £1 per metre be hardly anything? I prefer daveys method, guess the amount of time/earning required, add a bit on incase.

 

For above example I'd prob say £120 - £150

No, not really when you can fly round with a WFP. Not many houses have just a soffit, a fascia or gutter to clean. It's usually a minimum of 2 of them. My house is a normal 3 bed with 10 gutter brackets at the front. It would take me 20 minutes to do an S/F/G on it and I would earn £30 by my way of quoting.

 

Not a bad add on service me thinks.

I did a bit of fascia cleaning today. It was a bit of a favor for family selling a house. Looked rubbish after using wfp, looked better but I was no way happy with it. Good job it was a favor not a proper job!!

 

I get such hit and miss results with this kind of work I find it impossible to quote accurately.....definitely my least favorite job to do!!!!

I was going on the fact my house is around 4.5m wide, so to clear the gutters would be £4.50 a side. I think I mis-interpreted the question, I thought it was gutter clear, plus scrubbing the plastics :-(

 

I did one weekend.as you describe tuffers, and charged.... £30 :)

 

Managed with a sprayer with ecover and hot water, followed by wfp pure. I think I Got lucky it was a bit dirty but scrubbed to clean quite easily

Even the smallest job you should be able to get at least 35 - 50 squid per side clearing gutters and at least the sames for cleaning the outside of guttering, fascia & soffits.

never do a big job like that on a monday-it will sap your strength for days afterwards and delay your normal round . do it friday . so you can recover over wkend

 

if they say mondays the only day that fits in with us , tell them friday ,and keep repeating the word in a dull monotone . folk usually buckle and give in if you do this

another tip i can give if you have one of these multiple jobs ie- gutters +fascias+ windows is stick firm to your price. many customers think AHAH lets try and get a tenner off before you even start . the moment they suggest anything like this you must walk away , totally ignore,theyv offended you and youre hurt

 

few years ago i walked and remember that jus as i was about to pull away in my car the lady appeared and tapping on car window,pleading not six inches from my face . i turned slowly and glared at her at which point she pulled back thinking Sh//t
