To wfp, or not to wfp. THAT is the question

I’m looking at landing a condo assoc (1rst) 62 units… I figured it would take about 65 - 70 man hours to complete traditionally. It’s 1 and 2 story only, about half and half. Although, the way I bid… (10 feet or less is 1rst story) a decent chunk of the 1rst story needs at least a step ladder. So my question is… if I were to do this job in 70 hours traditionally… about how long would it take to do with WFP, for a skilled user. Thanks

oh, its outside only as well… which is a good reason why wfp looks so tasty on this one, and a reason to break into the market, as I have not yet.

It is hard to believe you can’t cut that in half with a WFP…especially since you need a stepladder for a bunch of it.

are the windows covered with aluminum or fiberglass screens?

You could easily cut it to 40 hours w/ no problem provided there are no screens to deal with.

Is this truly a question? :slight_smile:

I think the answer is pretty clear, a lot less than traditional imo. Skilled user I say close to half compared to traditional.

if you have screens on all the uppers (2 panes and screens) ladder the uppers since youll have to anyway, then wpole the lowers

they are all crank outs with the screens inside. The only screens that were on the outside were on a few screened in porches, but they asked that I just bid the exposed glass. So no worrying about screens at all. @jeremiah Yes, it’s really a question :slight_smile: The only experience I have had with WFP was working for F…SHHH and they had a 45 foot tucker with only a DI tank. The results were always pathetic (because I’m sure the owner never changed the resin, he had no idea what he was doing) and the weight was enough to make me shed tears of blood after 2 12 hour days in a row, fully extended in the wind…However, the more I’ve read on here, the more it seems the way to go!

I’ve only been on my WFP for about 7 or 8 months, but here’s a couple of examples from my schedule:

One house I clean took about 2.5 hours traditionally. This week I did it in 1.5 hours with WFP.
I have a five-building complex that I estimate would take about 8 or 9 hours traditionally. (And they would be long hours) I do it in a bit less than 5 hours with WFP. (They are 5 relatively easy hours.)

The time-savings increase dramatically when you move up to the second floor and higher.

For the right jobs, WFP is a huge time-saver/money-maker. The job you are describing sounds like a perfect job for WFP. Take the plunge.

Sounds like a dream job for wfp. Even with my limited wfp experience to date (about 2 months), I could cut that job down to about half or a little longer. I’d say go for it.

Thanks for all the replies. I’m meeting with the the assoc tonight. While walking around bidding these buildings multiple old ladies stuck their heads out and asked if I was going to change my water more regularly this year. (they assumed I was the same company as last year, and began giving me a lesson on how dirty water does not do a very good job cleaning windows) Rofl… I’m going to use the WFP pure water as a selling angle to quality when I meet with them tonight. If I get this job… and I sure hope I do… the plunge will feel good :slight_smile:

All condo assoc in here refuse WFP service since they can’t guaranty the windows properly shut or any leakage in houses. But if the allow it that would be an excellent way to save a bunch of time.

Are you doing the inside windows?

He stated earlier that it was outs only. Stop nodding off Mike. :wink:

Oh, did I fall asleep?

No, Mike Defiel, Boston Mike. Then again, maybe you fell asleep as well. if you were awake you’d know that tho…

If our friend is new at WFPing he won’t be able to check his work from the inside and that’s not good. Rookies leave a lot of drips.

And if there is hazing the residents will notice very little in cleaner glass.
