Default Window Pricing

One of my clients has asked for a quote to clean their windows. Inside and out. 26 windows, 35 in wide, 73 in long.

What is a typical price to charge?


Thanks in advance!
Wil

There are several ways to price. However if its just a simply wash not a "cleaning" and its under three stories on the outside I would charge $3-$4 a pane of glass under 4x4ft general dimensions. So if the windows are made of two panes (A fix and a sliding pane of glass) then you would charge $6-8 per window for both inside and out. If they are just one pane of glass then I would just charge $3-4. It also depend on if you want to clean windows? If you don't want to really add this to your business but will do it then charge the $4 or hourly.

Thank you for the response. It just makes sense to add this to my business offering. I don't like to see other companies come in to my clients to provide service that I can provide. If I can provide the service, be competitive and provide exceptional results, I'll do it as long as I can provide the service across all my clients.

By the way, we are cleaning the windows...both sides of the pane and frame.

Thanks!
Wil

my cousin's husband charges $4 per no matter what floor it is on.

I am sure if it is some giant 10' x 20' window than he gets more than $4 for it but the usual commercial 2' x 2' or residential 1' x 1' is $4.

This may sound really daft (I do have blonde hair :P) but could you define the difference between " a simple wash" and " cleaning " the windows.
Thanks

This is really a good advice.. This is a good reference for you but I think it really depends on how you will deal with your customer...

Though this question was posted over a year ago the difference is as follows:

Window wash: Wet the window and squeegee off, with occasional spot removal with a 2" razor. This is done when the windows are fairly clean and the water/soap is enough to take all the debris off.

cleaning: Wet the window, scrape every inch with a razor, re-wet and squeegee off and clean the frames. This is done when windows are really dirty and it's faster to scrape every inch instead of spot cleaning.

I also have raised my rates to $4-5 a pane, but this depends on what you're market will support. I was having every bid I gave taken so I started raising my rates. Also, I was once told that as long as you have enough business then you should raise your rates until you lose 20% of your bids due to high price. That way the other 80% is priced at a reasonably high price.

I personally do not like pricing by each window pane, but by the job. I need to have enough to pay my employees and pay ins costs and make a profit so I like to price it at $50 an hour and it seems to be very competitive. But sometimes you will have to tweak the price or just say no altogether if they are being unreasonable.

If your home is in need of some new windows, then chances are that you have already begun to compare the different prices of all the available types in order to find the right one at the best price.

Thanks,

Home Depot will allow you to browse window prices at a local store.

Go to www.homedepot.com. Search for keyword "windows", and the follow the links to browse a local store. Enter a zip code, and then select the links for windows--you can choose new construction or replacement, and then casement or double hung, and the like. I was able to find 3 different Andersen windows on my first try.
