Definitely min £90 usually takes longer than you think - with back difficult to access

16 panels @ a tenner a panel, so £160 but you could over a discount if its one of your customers.

I’d only take that on if I was desperate, ive had a bad experience with difficult access rooftop it’s not auful but difficult enough to put me off, I’m sure plenty on her have the skills and know how to get it done easy but I hate difficult reaching jobs I try to find/ pick easy work. Having said that if they accepted my price of £250 I’d swallow my pride and grumble to the Mrs how hard my day was.

If it had been perspex then probably £60, being 6'5" a few steps up a step ladder would solve awkward panels. With it being glass then probably double if they were already a custy. Would pass on the job if they weren't.

That's a real pain that job since its glass and if bits keep coming out from the seals could take hours to rise off.

if it was a regular customer I say 120.

one off I aim for 140 to 150 depending on the stat of the glass and tbh if it's a one off I hope I don't get it.

20 panels of self-cleaning glass which is pain for rinsing down unless you have access to a outside tap I would want £150 up north, but i've sacked off add on's now thankfully.

Iv had bad experiences with glass roofs, they can catch you out and be a nightmare and since i dont really want or need the add on work i would be wanting £150 at least depending on how bad it looks.

Thanks for your comments I was thinking £150-200 this is a regular customer we do a lot of work for but was intrested to get ones views on pricing to see how I compare to others don’t want to be way to cheap or ott with the price , I think that’s reasonable for a conservatory that cost £40-50 k

I must be missing something about how long that roof would take to clean?

I would hope to have it done I ln two hours max.

 

I once cleaned one that took me all day, hot summers day and some of the algae was welded on and I couldn't get the pressure on working off ladders to shift it, I had to use a scraper. Not only that but some of that self cleaning glass needs rinsing and rinsing and rinsing 

 

I think it's worse in summer but I always approach galas roofs with caution, they can catch you out 

 

That's why I'd quote higher than a plastic one. I would probably do that for £70-£80 if it was plastic.

When you say "we" does that mean there were 2 people so it took 4 man hours?

I have just bought a boss narrow scaffold which I would have used, looks really professional. But now that I have so much work (Rained off today, so going to price another job) I would charge £200. If I didn't get it then I would be happy. Too much work is actually worse than too little because all you end up doing is postponing the work and upsetting the customers.

Yes they are very very good I hire them when needed as we don’t use them much and a days hire with delivery is £80 and I couldn’t get it in my van 😂😂😂

this job was was a right pain several window cleaners priced it but when it came to doing it backed out making feeble excuses I priced it like Thomas Sanderson do and it’s now a regular job

Much would Sanderson charge for that? Inside and out, probably 2 grand. I have a 1450mm wide boss scaffold to sell, think its 8 metre tall tower. Give it to anyone on forum for £500 as I have a narrow one now.
