For me it depends on the quality of the frames. If they're wooden and kacky frames/peeling paint I tend to up the price.

For Georgian I start at £3 a window.

Watch out  for the ones with bonded glazing bars as the glue breaks down over the years and they become very easy to knock off with your brush!

I don’t get many Georgian window jobs in my area and the ones I have done in the past I always feel like I’m underpriced. So I don’t want to sell myself short.

Well hands up here.

I've never consciously had 'a price for (uPVC) Georgian windows' but this thread has crystallised that I should allow not so much for the panes but for all the side frames and deeper cills.

If OP wants a reason in the back of his mind to up his prices to customers then good on him for asking.

The truth is there is no hard or fast rule.when trad I used to charge a higher price as they took longer but with wfp I don't see a noticeable time difference than cleaning a normal window on maintenance cleans obviously if they are bad on a first clean I'd double the maintenance clean price.
price higher/work harder!

For me it’s the bow fronted Georgian doors the frames are really deep for the brush

Didn't get the job as quote was to high not sure if i was to far out, this is the front down the side there is a door and 3 small georgian windows and round the back there is a French doors 2 sets of 5 bi-folds and have to go on a roof to do a roof lantern and 3 more georgian windows like the smaller ones on the front.

I quoted £60 monthly or £72 every 2 months

I never quote monthly for larger domestics like that.id happily clean that for £50 8 weekly(minus the roof lantern as I don't use ladders at all now).I have quite a few properties like this right near each other and they are easy to clean and only take 30 mins on maintenance cleans.
