How is Window Cleaning Priced?
Window cleaning pricing is typically based on “per window” pricing. This means that the company has a set price for each window on your home. A good window cleaning company will have one of their representatives visit your home to complete a free estimate before giving you any pricing. The estimator will need to walk around the outside of your home and count/tally up your windows, screens, transoms, doors, skylights, etc. Some companies may even go as far as to have the estimator complete a walk-through on the inside of your home as well. After completing the site visit, the estimator will then be able to provide you with a firm quote for the different services that his company offers.
How Much Does Window Cleaning Cost?
There are all sorts of different styles of windows in the Richmond market. There are thermal pane windows, French cut (true divided lite) windows, storm windows, oversized windows, and really tiny windows. Each style has a different price associated with it, which is why it is important to conduct a site visit before giving a firm price. You can expect to pay more for windows that require ladder access on the inside. These windows are called Palladian windows and are often found over the front door or in a 2 story foyer. Also expect to pay more for windows that are on the 3rd floor that require high ladder work.
Pricing Based on Window Styles:
An average sized house (25 windows and a couple doors) will range between $175 and $350 for inside and out window cleaning. Depending on the style of windows your home has, per window pricing can range from $6 to $25 for inside and out cleaning. As a general rule of thumb, the older the home is, the more expensive the per window pricing will be.
Pricing Based on House Size:
Your window cleaning company should tell you up front what is and is not going to be included in your service. However, if they do not, it is a smart idea to ask what their service will entail. Some companies will charge extra for cleaning window sills, window frames, and window screens. So, it’s important to understand what you’re paying for before having the work completed.
We cannot stress enough the importance of ensuring that your contractors are properly licensed and fully insured BEFORE hiring them to work on your home. It is also advisable to check references for potential contractors to ensure that they are qualified to complete the service in a professional and timely manner.
