Facts about this job.
-You SHOULD be able to fit a ladder safely between the pool and the back windows.
-The separators are removable.
-There are probably 10 or 15 windows on sides you can’t see in these 2 pics.
-Lots of the interior windows will require a stepladder.
My normal math (which I’m still ironing out a bit) put me at $410. But I just had a feeling something would make this job more difficult so I upped it to $480.
I lost a couple jobs early bidding $4/pane but I’m think I am in the early stages of carving out my niche customer. I added 15% to get to $480. Bidding differently for ground, step, and extension ladder windows seems give me more comfortable numbers. I’d pull in 6 figs easily if I was landing jobs at $6.5!
Damn fellas and ladies. Lots of bids close to 700. Well, if I get it, it’s not a bad day’s work at 480. But it would be a better day’s work at 700. If I keep winning bids as I carve out my demo I’ll have to experiment with going up 10% at a time til I start getting denied.
I’m VERY new at this, but I figured about $600. Would have probably rounded up to that. I underbid my first few jobs by A LOT. But, I considered them all a learning experience. With time, I’m sure I’ll know how to price better.
This is tapping into my pet peave - where are you located? Your market makes all the difference. Asking us our opinion without this knowledge is useless for you.
Comparing California to NY to Florida to Texas to the Midwest is apples to oranges to grapefruits in many cases. You need to tap into what experienced cleaners are finding in your own market or similar ones. When getting input from people online - make sure to know and understand their markets.
That said, I’m in the dfw area and I would be in the 700 area myself.
