    Since i got back from holiday sunday i have been tradding wherever possible
    It may seem a step in the wrong direction but i am actually enjoying myself
    Had a couple of softwash jobs and broke the wfp out for a few awkward windows but been trad poling and using ladders and loving it
    Anyone else ever feel like a change to break the monotony?

    I've been doing some softwash etc too so my day does get broken up
    I will end up doing more big jobs rather than windows soon the way it is going now
    Got my first big render softwash week after next
    Did a small one today..cleaned lean too conny roof and sides and did the render round the windows etc too

    Yeah I had the same this morning - there's a few roads I do that are just 'quicker' from a ladder (lots of roofs to run along to do upstairs etc) and it is refreshing sometimes. I tend to just do what I feel like most days rather than stick to either method. Entirely depends on the house I'm at. Just about to order a Moerman Fliq too to try that out!

    Sold off my trad work and don't miss it in the slightest. My ladder comes off the van only about 3 times a day for flat roofs

    My ladder will always stay firmly on the roof.

    Never tradded apart from having a dabble on my own windows and doing insides. It is quite enjoyable but as soon as a ladder comes into the equation it becomes a ball ache. Glad I started in the wfp era
