Pricing Questions (TDL's)
Permalink  
 


I recently added window cleaning to my services.  I had my first big job yesterday, and I severely underpriced the job.

In & out cleaning, I charged $6 per double hung.  It is a big house with a guest house out back.  The job came out to $300 total between both houses.

We pulled up to do the job, and my cousin (who is the window expert) immediately said that the price was way off.  It turns out the windows were TDL's, which are way more time consuming than standard windows.  We figured about $650 would have been a fair price. 

My question is, how do you guys price TDL's?  Also, how do you price standard windows?

Please fill out your signature and don't be so blatant about spamming the forum. Google doesn't like that kind of post.

Thanks,

We charge on a per window basis, and that flat fee per window fluctuates by season.

Normally a standard double hung window we do for $15 per window in and out. That includes glass surface, screen wash and a wipe out of the sills and tracks. Some other types of windows like 6/6 storms command upwards of $30 per window because they are so time consuming.

I hope that helps a bit. If it doesn't ask away, I would be happy to help.

About the same as Chris L described above (same region) for regular double hung windows.  

When it comes to storms I peak out at about $25 each though. The way I see it, if I'm going to have to charge more than $25, then it usually means the windows will have to be cut open / hardware doesn't work / havent been cleaned since 1892.

At that point I explain to the customer that replacement is a better option than cleaning. The aggravation of spending 1 hour on each window isn't worth it to me.
