“Are you licensed with the CCB?” That’s a question we’re often asked when doing window washing, pressure washing and gutter cleaning estimates, and the answer is: No.
The reason we do not have a license is that the work Beckon Call performs is not covered under the Construction Contractor’s Board (CCB). In fact, obtaining a CCB license would provide no benefit to our customers.

Reducing your exposure to risk:
If you are hiring work to be performed at your home or place of business and want to make sure that the company or individual is legitimate, here are things you can do to reduce your exposure to risk:
- Ask to see certificate of insurance and bond.
- Ask for references.
- Do they drive a vehicle with permanent signage?
- Are they neat and professional in appearance?
- Check to see if the company has an established website.
- Perform a Google search on the company name, review the results.
It’s important that you are comfortable with anyone that is working around your home or business. Ensuring that a company is well established will help protect you from fly-by-night operations and give you some reassurance that if the need to call for follow-up occurs, someone will be responding from the company.

I’ve talked to a lot of people about window washing, and quite a few of them do not like washing windows at their home.
They like having clean windows, they just don’t like the time it takes and the results aren’t what they were hoping for.
Why not hire a professional window cleaner? When I asked them, the most common response was “I’m not sure how much that costs.”
I clean windows at numerous homes, and one thing I can tell you is that there is a lot of variations from home to home.
With different window styles, height of windows, and so on, getting a look at the job is the best way to price it. But here are some figures to give you a general idea of the costs:
- Smaller home (up to 1,900 sq ft.): Starts at $90
- Medium home (2,000 – 3,200 sq ft): $150 and up
- Larger home (3,200 sq ft and up): $225 and up
