Lichen encrusted conservatory roofs can be a pig to get clean.

RC if you have something better to get it off do spill the beans.

That's a beast of a job.

 

I have decided I hate doing big jobs now.

 

Much prefer knocking out simple domestic regular window cleaning.

Smurf do you charge extra when it's bad as that? When I priced up the job i priced the roof at £60 it's abit trial and error for me at the moment as I don't do many jobs like that so not sure my pricing is right at the moment the roof took 5 hours to clean

On roofs I'm wanting at least £25 per hour so the one you cleaned in the pic that size I would idealy be looking for around £125- £150 to do the job properly. After saying that it's up to you how much you quote to win the work.

Yep Damo sometimes wish I was just bashing out windows myself but if big jobs are priced up right makes it all worth the hassle.
