Your local Leaders in Exterior Building Maintenance & Cleaning Services
Commercial & Residential
We understand finding multiple, reliable contractors to thoroughly complete the variety of services required to maintain your property can be a daunting task. That's why Transparency Windows and our affiliates are offering an array of services to provide you with a one-stop-shop for all of your exterior building and property maintenance needs.
The scope of services for both residential and commercial windows includes:
Glass Pane Wash & Polish
One- / Two-Sided
1st - 3rd Floor ( < 32' typical)
Glass Pane Detailing
Minor Chip/Crack Sealing
Un-washable Marks (paint spots, adhesive, etc.)
Track, Sill & Frame Cleaning
Our general approach to generating an estimate is by approximating the total time it would take us to complete the listed services you request (based on our experience) and applying an hourly rate of $38/hour. This number is then expanded out to a range that represents the final, minimum or maximum prices you would pay.
Businesses and other commercial entities are eligible to receive a free estimate based on the frequency of cleaning and scope of services requested at the location. Additional price considerations available for entities with multiple locations being serviced.
Our pressure washing services are capable of targeting the following surfaces by using the right chemical cleaner specific to the material:
Interior / Exterior Flooring
Similar to window washing, our pressure washing prices are generated by estimating the total amount of time it would take for us to complete the job. A rate of $95/hour is applied and then this number is expanded out to a range that represents the final, minimum or maximum price you will pay.
Commercial pressure washing prices are determined on a case-by-case basis. Businesses and other commercial entities are eligible to receive a free estimate based on the frequency of cleaning and scope of services requested.
Gutter cleaning involves the clearing of all dirt and debris inside the gutters followed by a wash to remove leftover dirt. The drainpipes are then cleared and all remaining debris is removed from the downspout and surrounding area.
Additionally, we are capable of providing most gutter installation, repair and remounting services (case-by-case basis).
Residential & Commercial
Pricing is based on the floor level that the gutters are secured to:
1st - $0.80 / linear ft
2nd - $1.00 / linear ft
3rd - $1.40 / linear ft
+$0.20 / linear ft for Exterior
Wash of Gutters (all levels)

We know that no one enjoys the exhausting & time-consuming struggle of maintaining the exterior of a house, business or other property. We also know that being forced to choose between overpaying a corporate company for quality assurance or underpaying a stranger for an underwhelming final product can leave any homeowner, property manager, or business supervisor stuck in a perpetual cycle of "getting it done later."
In the summer of 2019, Tyler Tuttle began Transparency Windows as a small, on-the-side window washing business that focused on residential homes in the Iowa City area. Recognizing the region's demand for exterior building maintenance services in combination with the lack of a well-balanced service provider, he teamed up with Devon Duarte and Levi-Runciman to form Tuttle-Runciman LLC and more recently, Transparent Trades LLC. Since then, our dedication to quality, consistency and affordability has allowed us to increase the speed and scope of our services, expand these services to the entire Iowa City-Cedar Rapids Corridor for both residential & commercial clients, and provide them in a professional, inexpensive & thorough manner.
Like you, none of us here are particularly in love with getting up on the ladder and washing windows, pressure washing siding or cleaning gutters. What we do love and where our intense motivation comes from is working with you and your budget to efficiently and effectively bring your property's functionality, appearance and value to its maximum potential. So stop putting off the inevitable and help us help you give your property the makeover it deserves.
We look forward to working with you!
Tyler, Devon & Levi
