Tuesday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

Does anyone have any experience in quoting window cleaning by the square foot?

I am bidding a job and they are asking for a price per square foot for interior glass and a price per square foot for exterior glass.

Does anyone price window cleaning according to this method and have any pricing ranges that I should charge between?

Tuesday’s Answer:

pricing window cleaning by square feetYou might want to ask this question on one of the window cleaning forums because someone there might have a good answer.

I do not price per square foot simply because it takes too long to measure panes.

You might say the panes are a pain.

Instead, I price per opening, $2 to $6 a side depending on size and accessibility.

Since this is not truly a scientific method, why not time yourself cleaning a window similar in size to what you are looking at, measure the glass, do the math?
