One of my upsells is powerwashing driveways/walkways, especially if I will be powerwashing the house, since it only takes a few hours anyway. Can make an extra hundred or two dollars for an hour of work. Any finished wood front doors get a mention from me. People dont think about their front doors enough, especially if they use their garage for entry. I've sold several refinishes by simply bringing it to their attention. Or, if its still in good shape, I tell them to make sure to do maintanence coats every couple years to prevent a whole refinish.

I do like the can light idea...

Another pretty easy upsell is window washing / roof cleaning on an exterior. Two ways to go about it:
1. Do it yourself while unmasking and punching out.
2. Hire a cleaning company from the start. This is your new window sub develop a relationship with them. I have a company that specializes in roof cleaning and window cleaning. They scrape off moss and treat the roofs vs. Pressurewashing them. Easy upsell for the right demographic. Your sub gets to keep the client for future cleans (ours gives us a great deal because of this) and you can make a few extra bucks off making a phone call or two.

Window cleaning is a touchy up-sell only because washing windows that have been painted can damage the new finish. If the paint has not cured the cleaning solutions can damage the paint job.


We stick to upselling carpentry or painting dry erase walls.

I up sell screen repair. Especially on homes with screened in pools. Big jobs I will sub out. This allows me to cut the screens to fly a ladder through the lanai. I am getting to old and fat for walk boards and ladder jacks. so I win twice when they bite.

You can polish the windows with a slightly damp microfiber cloth. I do it all the time with just a little water & a little vinegar in a just damp cloth. Just keep a plastic grocery bag full of them & Bob's your Uncle. (Or maybe Bob is my Uncle, either way...)

90% of our work is painting cabinets and upsales for us are soft close hinges & drilling - installing pulls. But one of most profitable is cutting out door panel & installing glass

Being in Canada is sucks that we cannot buy the 250 g/l (VOC) Breakthrough.

I'm curious, what product would you use if the 250 Breakthrough wasn't available anymore?

I love that thread you made a few years ago and still refer to it.

And the good thing about cabinets is we've never been rained out, stung by a wasp & work in a/c

times have change, real estate agents , interior decorators & GC's now beg us to work with their clients because of the value - return

but i love working direct with HO, 80% of our work
