How Much Does Window Cleaning Cost?

 
average costMedium: $40-$140high costHigh: $56-$196
post E-mail post Post   Comments (45)

Most window cleaning services charge by the number of panes. Each pane is a piece of glass framed on all sides by wood or metal. Some companies charge by the total square footage of the home.

Typical costs:

What should be included:
  • Typically a professional window washer will remove and mark all screens, cleaning both sides of the screens before setting them aside. Both the inside and outside of the windows should be washed, including the window tracks and sills. The clean screens should then be put back in place. Ideally, household windows should be washed twice a year, according to ThisOldHouse.com, which describes techniques[1] for specific cleaning tasks such as picture windows or multi-pane windows.
Additional costs:
  • Screen cleaning is .50 cents-$5 each, depending on size. Some companies will not clean broken or torn screens.
  • Sliding glass doors run $2.50-$8 per door. Some companies average the cost of sliding doors with small bathroom windows, to cut the price.
  • Some cleaners will include sills and tracks. If not, the price runs .50 cents-$5.
  • While second-story work is generally charged the same as single story, third and fourth-floor ladder work runs $3-$5 extra per window.
  • Paint or stain removal on the windows costs $3.50-$6 for a regular-sized window.
  • Removing mineral deposits is included by some companies and runs about $20 per pane at others.
  • Some companies offer a 10-20% discount for scheduling with neighbors.
  • Shopping for window cleaning:

    I wrote a great write up under the Pressure Washing segment on this site as a "return favor" for making me look good in front of my property's Tenants and my Management Company's Board of Directors. Im posting this now as they recently did a great job on the windows. OSHA Inspector unexpectedly arrived and went straight to the roof while I was out and no citations where given. That, I think, says it all.

    This was absolutely the best window service I have ever delt with. I Had them do my house on a referral and was taken by the highly respectful and professional manner in which they performed their service. Their attention to detail was spot on, as at times I am a little overbearing about how I like things done. They have always exceeded my expectations and I rarely brag about services I have had, but I must give these guys credit because they really take an honest pride in their work. A perfect example of our loved Veterans. Recommend! Recommend! 602-828-9539

    I was hesitant to have my windows cleaned by this company, but their prices could not be beat. Most companies that I spoke with quoted me outrageous prices, so I kept calling around. Eventually, Premiere came out and gave me an estimate, schedule an appointment, and now everyone compliments me on my windows. Thanks Premiere! I have recommended you to all of my friends, and co-workers.
