Builders clean????

Recommended Posts

GF Window Cleaning

Hi Guys

 

What is the going rate for a complete builders clean inside and outside?

 

These are all turn key houses so these will all be fitted with kitchens, bathrooms, carpets etc..

 

The clean will include windows inside and outside. Fascia, sofit and gutter. Complete interior clean including floors, bathrooms, kitchens etc..  I am in Northern Ireland, I know it will vary in different parts of the country. 

 

I am quoting for a complete builders clean for a contractor who has a big site of turn key bungalows  and two storey house's. I haven't done many and the couple I done were for friends who built there own houses. 

 

Thanks in advance for your answers

Allow for an avarage hour per window. Total price for windows times two for the whole clean.

We don’t generaly do this type of work but did two large dorma bungalows for an existing customer the tape on the window frames had be scraped off the window frames as it had been on there a long time and wouldn’t peel , total price £1500 for the two took 4 people 3 days to do ,so not a good earner 😬😬😬😬

Always a tricky one guess you need to know what you want to earn a day and then work out how long its going to take you to do it.

I once few years ago sub  contracted builders cleans , Total nightmare if not equipped properly taking off stickers on new glass ect, what finnished me from doing any more was the site manager giving me a vebal ok to wet scrap stickers off new glass !

when the sun shone on that glass afterwards he got on the blower & denied permission to my guy & claimed on his public liability ins & had the lot changed... 

BE SURE TO GET IT WRITTEN DOWN or suffer a lieing sun of a gun lol.

best of luck.

id say dont bother.......seriously they are a pain in the ****....also if theres any scratches on the glass after you ve cleaned them you could get the blame unless you get them to sign a "scratch waiver",also theres the problem of getting paid,plenty of WCs have been bumped for money off builders.....

 

its the wrong sort of work if you like an easy stress free window cleaning life......

a massive can of worms,

 

always charge more as there will always be issues you dont expected, Ive lost money on builders cleans just for windows before due to these issues.

I just charge well and not bothered if I don't get it. Make sure you report scratches on glass in case they blame you. They are really not worth the hassle, I have often found to my cost.

Like everyone else says "avoid" I did loads for an ex employer on a big development there was 2 men for 2 weeks to complete it which we did then the contractor went bust and our gaffer never got paid in the end !!

Yeah i’d have to say the same. Done a few jobs in the early days working when tradesmen were around and you just end up getting in each others way, they get things dirty right after you've cleaned them. On one job the painter & plasterer had caked every internal window and frame up real bad.
