    Hello all,

    Been a succesful first year. Up to 25 accts so far and still getting calls. I do some odd jobs as well.
    The other day, I had a customer ask me what I would charge him for his winders to be washed. I offer the service, but never really expected to get a residential market. Told him $5 a window, exterior only and he jumped all over it. Did his house and daughters house in less than an hour for $70. Is this an untapped market????? Anyone do any window washing residentially?

    No but there's too many Lco's ALL offering the same dang services so if you can
    find something unique like window washing and get paid for doing it then I say do it.

    One it gets you into a niche, two it gets you out of my hair :p
    Seriously thou it sounds like a good idea, peace out.

    I wash windows too. I do mostly commercial but will occasionally do a house. For a small one story house I will charge $80 for inside and outside windows.

    I too had a customer who wanted windows washed "outside" we did this and also changed light bulbs on several diffrent outside poles... Made out like a bandit.....

    WE have toyed with the ideal of Pool cleaning.

    I started just mowing, and noticed while cutting they had another guy come by and powerwash, do the gutters etc....Most customers would rather pay one guy to do it all. If you have the time, make some money......
