jackson10, if budget is tight call Alex at Window Cleaning Resource
and they can recommend the very basic tools for a window cleaning
service. I am in Canada , but have been talking/ dealing with WCR
since 2009. These folks will not steer you wrong, and have gone out
of their way to get me equipment not available in Canada.Call Alex!

jackson10, when you get a chance go to
click on my prices page, this has worked extremely well for me showing
clients how I count windows to give them price I will charge them.Lots of
work and fine tuning went in to getting this to where it is. Good Luck!

So do you charge by the number of window plains ?
Thank you

@jackson10: if you were addressing me, yes I do charge
by the pane.Set a per pane price, leave the same for all
size, it all evens out in the end.I compare to how long it
should take me to do it times my hourly rate and compare
to charge by per pane pricing. If done correctly, the numbers
should be very close! Never tell a customer what you charge
by the hour for window cleaning! Hope this helps.

I went to the Weekend Window Cleaning School in California and learned Hands-on training. Visit

This is a 4 year old thread.

But welcome anyway…and I’m primarily a window cleaner.

And to think, some poor sap is paying you for “SEO services”… :roll_eyes:
