Window Coating Removal

A regular commercial customer of mind referred a contractor to me. He is remodelling a store and wants me to remove approximately 280 square feet of a self-adhesive translucent coating. I did a test patch today with an simple water/Dawn mix and a scraper. The test patch came off fairly easy and didn’t leave an excessive amount of glue residue.

How would you price this job?

And, any recommendations on what to use if I run into any dificulties?

UPDATE: I don’t think I will ever agree to a window coating removal job again. It took me so much longer than I anticipated that I should have charged 4x what I did in order for it to be worth it. It was physically demanding, slow, and tedious.

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes we are the bug, sometimes we are the windshield…

Sounds a lot like tint removal! Ugh! I hate tint removal.
