Expect the unexpected ;-)

 

Levitation would Be good safety feature, that's for sure

I have no doubt Jake knows what he is doing the same as i could run about untethered on a roof all day

The reason i don't is the fact that the 1 second your mind wanders or something unexpected happens is the time you learn your lesson the hard way or don't learn as you are now in a morgue

Complacency is the biggest killer imo

I've moved on a lot since I posted this thread, the last conny roof I did was £150 in 4 hours, but I charged fairly, customer said the price was fair...

 

Getting a good price means you'll do a better job

I try to keep pushing boundaries price wise as to be honest I hate doing them so want to make it worth my while for the hassle.

 

150 for that size that @Jake posted was dirt cheap in my book as if was filthy I would have quoted at least double if not more.

300 to clean a conservatory, I'd take that all day long, I thought 150 was a good price! :D

It was dirty, but only took 4 hours smurf, no way would I have got it for £300, they would of laughed in my face.

 

£150 for 4 hours work is lovely jubbly, and it's one nice lump of dough rather than dribs and drabs from window cleaning,

 

If I could do one of them a week, I'd be more than happy. £600 a month from conny roofs would be great.

 

It probably would take you about 3 days though smurf, as your into all that health and saftey, but you know me by now, 'get on with it you wimp' as my dad always said. It pays to be brave. None of that ankalad rubbish.

 

Just be safe and know your limits is my motto, and as I've said over and over and OVER I don't stand on plastic roofs or any conny that doesn't have a steel support structure.

 

There's risk in everything.

 

Anyway that's how me and the guys who trained me do them, we get up and get on with it. Never had an issue, but can't be bothered to go over all over again, we all work differently. :cool:

Smurf

You may joke but you can easily get 150 for roofs a third of the size of that one.

You say that smurf, but you can only earn what the customer is willing to pay, it took a month for this bloke to come round to the idea of spending £150 on this job,

 

You'll only earn what the customer wants to pay

It took less than 5 mins to get this one for 150

 

Approx 5m x 3m roof in the middle

Yes well done smurf, the point remains, people will only pay what they see is worth it, some will have no problem with a higher price, some won't, 'something is only worth what someone will pay for it'

 

On another day you wouldn't have got that job, it's all dependant on the customer

Having the right gear for the job looks more professional and believe it or not customers will part with more money for what they see as a quality job done professionally
