reasonable prices on windows and gutters

Hello,
I have just got into the windows and gutters business and I am wondering what are reasonable trade service prices ? The business consists of mostly residential homes in the Massachusetts area. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I got my start doing windows on Nantucket Island, MA

I wish I could get the amount of money that we charged up there back here in Jersey!

Pricing varies greatly on windows and gutters depending on your market, the types of windows, access, gutter access, etc.

The best thing to do is either try to get a gauge of what your competition is charging by checking out newspaper ads, money mailers, craigslist etc.

Remember, you don't have to be the cheapest guy in town to get the jobs.

Tresemme has a great range of hair styling products that are very good quality, and are very reasonably priced!
John Frieda also has salon quality products at a good price. I use it all the time and love it

Who cares about hair products!?

Where I live prices range from $4/ for a double hung inside and out up to 12.00.

this is for a inside and outside cleaning, but i would start around 5 and work up once you finally become a good cleaner.

Remember working for yourself is all about selling and not really the work your doing.

don't get me wrong you need to offer a quality service, but before that you need to offer a quality pitch.

Look at your competitors websites, see if they have an online quote form, submit it and then compare their price with price that you want to quote. You do not have to be a cheaper, you just have to offer the best service for the best price.

Hi all,
According to me it will be better if you can take idea of price of your competitors. In your local area you should watch that what is average price. After that you will be able to fix your price apart from that it may be possible that your competitor would have lower price and in this situation competition will be tough so you can add toll free number or any free service with your services.

IMO, you will run yourself ragged competing on price. There are window cleaners out there who are working for peanuts. They have no insurance, probably aren't paying taxes etc. so how can you, as a legitimate business, compete with them. There are also the legitimate businesses who have 10 employees that they are paying minimum wage to. You can't compete with their prices either, if you are a 1 person gig and want to make a decent living. You need to offer value instead of price. What do you bring to the table that your competition doesn't?

Just being clean-cut, punctual, polite, and doing a great job is head-and-shoulders above a lot of window cleaners out there.
