I will be Lead Window Cleaner (Foreman) for a new Home Services business locally.

Full time, YEAR ROUND, $19.00/hr. for the first two weeks and then a raise after that.

I'm tired of running a business by myself. It's really frickin' hard.

So, now I have support. I will run crews (About 3, two man crews) and I don't have to worry about the books.

But, if I ever have to fall back on MY clients, they will already be there, as I will service them on the weekends and such. Or I will sell my accounts to the new boss.

Ha! I'm looking to eliminate the spare time.

I have only worked two days in the last month. Now I have steady work. Winter sucks for my line of work, but they do more than just window cleaning. They do home maintenance services.

I actually love it. You get to see how rich people live too. Plus being in the Puget Sound area, there are some spectacular views from on top of a roof.

Window cleaning pays by the pane, but if you are good enough as an owner, you can make 50 to 100 dollars an hour just by yourself.

Different rates for different size windows I guess? How much per pane?

The going rate is between 4 and 5 dollars per pane. This includes inside and out. 50 panes (Not frames...Some frames have two or more window panes in them) = $250.00. It should take 4 hrs if you know what you are doing. Double that if you have no experience.

Skylights are 10 dollars each unless they are larger than a regular skylight. If so, double that price. Kitchen/Garden window boxes are 30 dollars each. French panes (Smaller than 10" by 10" are 1 dollar each.) Oversized panes larger than 3 by 5 ft are 10 dollars each.
