How much does your window cleaner charge?

I've just had a quote from a window cleaner for £25. I live in a 3 bed semi detached with about 22 windows (panes of glass). Is this expensive? I really don't know if it is or not as I've never had a regular window cleaner before. He said he can come every 2 months so that's £150 a year just to have clean windows. I don't want to be ripped off but he's the only local one around and I can't reach my top windows myself.

£8 every 4 weeks but just for the front. Two big bay windows, small window and door. £25 for the back too but we're never in to give access.

I live in a 3 bed house my window cleaner does front and back and my front and back door and charges £7.50 per month!

3 bed detached, plus a conservatory, £8!

massive 4 bed detatched (not a stealth boast it's a rented shithole that I pay way too much for) £10.

Seems steep to me. £20 for four bedrooms - Victorian house massive windows, 14 in total (5 bays so loads of panes). But I’m in Yorkshire AND there’s quite a lot of competition.

sorry it's £9 but I give him 10 - we have 30 windows

JammyTodger Wed 21-Feb-18 17:44:36

I've just been quoted £60 shock 4 bed semi in Worcs. We have a lot of windows but I was expecting half that at most. I'm looking into becoming a window cleaner now...

£3 every 2 weeks. Thats for a terraced house and he only does the front bay window and 1 upstairs window x

Depends how many window cleaners are around where you live - busy area think will be cheaper.

Parents live in 5 bed detached house in built up area pay £8 (front and back) every two weeks

I've just paid £25 for 5 bed detached front and back but hardly any window cleaners here and it's countryish area

Do they do the fascias too? I didn't think to ask

Crikey, I’m in a 3 bed in the South East and it’s £10 a month!

Squ1ggle Wed 21-Feb-18 17:53:17

£5 every 2 weeks (though a bit unpredictable) for a 3 bed semi. That's front and back including upstairs with 3 Bay windows and a side window.

bookgirl1982 Wed 21-Feb-18 17:56:53

Ours charges £1 per window/door.

Are the inexpensive window cleaners that have been mentioned here using the traditional method? By that I mean a ladder and a bucket and chami leather?

gobbin Wed 21-Feb-18 23:49:57

£15 every two months, 4 bed detached, 13 windows.

SpadesOfGlory Wed 21-Feb-18 23:54:37

£6 about every 6 weeks. 3 bed semi front and back, as well as the panels down the side of the front door.

Redyoyo Wed 21-Feb-18 23:57:09

£4 for a 3 bed semi with 10 Windows he comes twice a month I give him a fiver and a cup of tea and a biscuit and he fills me in on the gossip in our street well worth it! Even my kids say ooh there's Davy lets find out what's happening this week!

Buglife Thu 22-Feb-18 08:19:45

My window cleaners use the traditional method. And are £10 for the whole house once a month.

jessei Thu 22-Feb-18 10:48:34

Oh I should have mentioned he uses the reach and wash system pole. Not the traditional way so maybe that's why it's a bit more expensive

toldmywrath Thu 22-Feb-18 10:54:50

The pole system is useless if you live in a hard water area. Just saying.wink

PurplePotatoes Thu 22-Feb-18 10:57:34

£8 for a 3 bed detached using pole system.

I think there's 11 full windows made up of 3-5 glass panels plus patio doors.

We once had someone charge us 20 quid though from a largish company..this is just a guy on his own.

Buglife Thu 22-Feb-18 11:06:05

I don’t understand why the pole would be better really. My cleaners aren’t here more than 5 mins and the windows are clean.

RayM Thu 22-Feb-18 11:23:02

4 bed detached. £10 every 8 weeks. They do a few on the street that day.

LucilleBluth Thu 22-Feb-18 12:11:46

4 bed detached, £13.

Turkkadin Thu 22-Feb-18 23:20:41

Ladderless Water Fed Pole Window Cleaning is much safer for the operative. Being up a ladder is dangerous and many ladder users are injured and even killed. Tap water isn't used with a Water Fed Pole. The water is purified before use and should dry in the air to a streak free shiny finish.
