Frist construction clean up bid I’m in Florida and I don’t know how much to charge any insights will help picture are add it
Figure up what your price would be to do your regular clean of the windows for the job - then multiply that price by 2 to 2.5 times your regular rate for CCU. For really trashed windows (lots of paint, stucco, tape, and stickers) 3+ times your regular price.
For normal cleans, I have a price for each item. Price for a door, a screen, a track, small panes etc. I look over everything and adjust each item price as needed. Track cleaning for a CCU is usually 4x the normal price, for example.
Whatever your regular price is, then 3x that for CCU
Omg this looks like a home in Orlando, where we’re based. This is a monster of a job. Minimum 3x and don’t doubt or question if it’s astronomical. They can take it or leave it. I’ve learned my lesson and would probably walk away from this. The amount of work and stress isn’t worth it, while you could be doing 3-5 other jobs that equal the amount you’d make on this without the amount work involved to complete it. If you are in Orlando and want some help pricing it lmk
Totally agree on the 4x track cleaning price. It’s always the tracks and frames that end up taking us longer.
They didn’t take it from what he told me they had someone come out to do the job but the company walk off more likely they under bid. But this guy was like they where much cheaper I was like ok hope you find someone else like that have a good day.
Good for you. CCU is definitely a go with your gut. Builders want cheap and fast. CCU is neither. I recall in our early days someone wanted a quote for this beautiful lakeside home. We quoted $1,000. Guy tells us someone else could do it for under $300. Just need windex and razors ok pro! We went by to look at later and it was scratch city. Plus, ton of risk and liability and stress. Blah, not worth it.
Edit: such a beautiful home, and they cheap out on something they’ve spent so much money on.
Yeah how is it up in Orlando it wouldn’t stop raining in Ft lauderdale
I agree with what the people above suggested— figure out what your normal price would be…and then factor in the CCU. How much you charge for CCU for YOUR business is your own price-- but yeah I have to agree…I dislike CCU because it takes 5x as long, bare minimum. HOWEVER, if you are getting what you need to from the job to be profitable-- there is plenty of wiggle room.
Not all contractors are budget oriented. Many I have dealt with just want it done, they are tacking their 15-20 percent onto your price anyway and putting that into their pocket.
I have to agree, looking at this one---- you got yourself a 2 day job (Maybe even 3, day 3 would be the final walkthrough and touching up, etc) if you are by yourself (And want to do QUALITY work— people try to rush too much into one day. After 9-10 hours working, there is no way their QUALITY is the same as when day begins. You are not as fresh as you were at 7am compared to 5pm. Unless of course, you are Superman.)
Some of those look like 3 piece ladder work, the ladder work is what will take you the longest. The rest of the job looks pretty easy and the company did a good job keeping the glass decent. (LOL, trust me, I’ve done some jobs where I would have been better off HOSING it off, terrible prep job from the construction crew…jeeeeeez) Time consuming though. All CCUs are.
