So Not Just The Windows Then...


Recommended Posts

Customer rang yesterday asking for windows to be done today, in & out. Not a problem, good bloke + get a load of other work off him. Also asked if I could jet-wash his one of his patios as he hasn't got the time. No issue, been doing his house for a while, so knew how big it was (about 25 sqm).


Get there & his wife says "he's told you everything hasn't he", "yep, windows & patio" - "err, no bit more than that"


List includes:


Windows in/out

All 3 patios & path around the house (about 200 sqm)

Greenhouse in/out



Plus his pressure washer is a little RAC unit.


Going back tomorrow to finish off!


Must say though, his RAC washer was a surprise. For a little DIY electric unit, it ran without fault for about 3 hrs solid & gave some really good results.

Oh yeah - know what I need to earn & getting it!


Smurf, I was really surprised by it. Thought it would be stop start every half hour or so with overheating, but just kept going. Making the back ache a bit and not quick, but given the area in question, shoudl have it all done in 4hrs.

Don't mind doing the extra bits - just a pain when you work out your days & then have to re-jig it all as the job is 3 times as big as initially indicated.


Got a few I do the odd bits for - helps pay the bills!

Still has the dirty water sitting on it - took the photos before I rinsed the surface off.


Wasn't as good as I could have done with my gear, but customer was well pleased - and thats what matters.
