Yeah that's true the slow months suck. I was thinking of doing pressure cleaning, driveways and doing the roofs as well when there isn't much to do.

By the linear foot + the type of light (isicleor strand) overall job size and difficulty. Plus you gotta plan for going back and fixing something. LED vs. incandesent makes a HUGE difference too. Plus you have to take it all down afterwards and store it.

At least that's how I do it.

That cleanup looks really nice!

Ohh I see, that seems like tedious work but a great pay off in the end. They way you price it makes sense, I'm sure that most guys do it like that. Do you have a lot of customers who have you do it?

I just started this year but did 6 big houses. I have 10 lined up for next year. lights and cords can get expensive. One of the house was 2k just in lights. No cords or timers either.

We do them too what I do is the customer buys the material plus my 20% then we charge per man hour to put up and take down
I also charge for storage if they don't have room
Average house is $4500 first year then $1500 per year after

That's awesome stuff. Any of you have pictures? Would love to see them. I would want to try that out but I can't see myself doing that yet being 17 but that is a cool idea!
