Well it would be no where close as to what you could make doing them your self. If you had a house that had $200 worth of windows to clean and got %10 , that would only be $20. On the other hand if you had 10 of these that would be $200 profit ; but............ if you did these same 10 yourself that would be $2,000 worth of work. Why do you want to outsource this income? Typically windows are fairly easy to do but the workmans comp is high , around 18%.But that can be figured into the prices.
Dan, you say that windows are fairly easy and a good income. Could we start another thread about getting a window cleaning business started? For instance, how would one get started....what are all of the tools involved....how do you get everything off the windows and make them look brandnew.....what chemicals are used....how to properly use a squegee....etc....
I am very interested in going this route, but I need as much info as possible. Thanks, Sherri
I read somewhere in this thread that you would have to figure in workers comp, if you outsource your window cleaning business. What if you subcontract the work out? You wouldn't need to pay workers comp then. Am I wrong? Please advise. Thanks.
You need to make sure that your sub does indeed have workmans comp. Make them give you a certificate showing that it is active. It is my understanding that if there is an accident and the sub for some reason does not have workmans comp then the responsibility will come to you . Discuss this with an insurance agent.
