Just bid a big house in a gated community, super exclusive, about 100 panes of glass between 3 stories, lot of ladder work and sketchy roof tiles. My bid came out to about 600 bucks which was 3 times her current guy. He’s been doing it for 20 years so my recommendation was to keep him happy.
I run into a lot of people who have had the same guy since the 80’s and he is still cleaning for 80’s pricing so I tell them to hold on to that guy as long as he is willing and able because they are usually working for 1/3 of what I would do it at bare minimum. I went to Bellacino’s (a sub shop) that had 75 panes of glass (i just pictured the one side of the building, the other side has about 30+ panes). I offered to do them for $120 and she said the guy that has been doing them since they opened 12 years ago has been doing them in/out for $33. He does all the windows in that town too for barely anything. I hate that he somehow can do that and maintain but I respect him for sticking with it and making that town his.
