This home is very well maintained and just beautiful. If it were mine, I would hire someone else to do the window cleaning (smile). The dividers are on the outside. I only wish they were on the inside. She only wants outside done. This is what I wrote down...
8 Windows with 15 panes each 18 Windows with 8 panes each 23 Windows with 6 panes each 8 Windows with 10 panes each 2 Windows with 20 panes each 1 Window with 25 panes 3 Windows with 16 panes each 5 Windows with 4 panes each 1 Window with 21 panes 10 Windows with 10 panes each 6 Doors with 10 panes each (French style) 1 Door with 9 panes Front door has 3 long glass panes (Wide one in middle, smaller on each side) 1 Attic window with 9 panes. You have to get on 2nd story roof to get to this window. The roof is shaped like A frame home.
The windows are not in bad shape, but oh my what a pain

Yes , a big PANE. So you gonna bid it. I know you can do it but are you going to make it worth your while. Sounds like some ladder work and roof walking. Figure in some risk factor also. I hope you don't low ball this one and be mad at yourself while your on this job. Hope the best for you my friend. Dan
Ok Danny, I am coming up with around $621.20 for the cleaning. May I have your honest opinion on weather I am too high or too low? I feel like I am a bit high, but again I have never bid this type of job before so I really dont know.

Sounds decent to me. Maybe a little low. I know it sounds high but I have did a few houses for this price in past. Its a lot of work and most people that have a house this size can afford to hire it done. Bid what you want to though. What sounds good to me may not to someone else. Also you have actually seen this job site and know what its going to take to get it done right.

I'm not certain that your customer really knows what they are asking for. Linear feet is a measurement of distance. Width and/or Thickness has no bearing in linear feet. For instance is you have a perfectly square room that is 12 feet on each side you could say each wall would need 12 linear feet of (baseboard) or in order to do the room entirely you would need 48 linear feet (4x12=48). What they might be asking for in regards to window panes is your price for square footage. Square footage is a measurement of area. That same room that was perfectly square from our earlier example would actually give you a measurement of 144 square feet. Square footage is a measurement of width and length. Cubic feet would be length x width x thickness. Make sense?
