    Please see the attached picture of several houseswe currently clean
    naturally we have to use the pole for the top windows on the pics

    angled adaptors etc

    Id probably say a modified wag tail on a pole. Modification is the detailer, wagga's videos on youtube will help there.

    When you say 'we' there lies your answer. Get your mate to foot the ladder if the angle is dodgy over the little roof. So many ways you could park your ladder to get to the tops. You do use ladders don't you?

    If on my own would put the ladder over roof against each wall & do 1 pane at a time (4 moves)
    Get your mate to foot the ladder.

    Wagtail on a pole I would just pull down. They look wooden so may not need to much detail.

    Backpack & pole.

    WFP backpack. £180 from WCW. Includes everything inc. pole, brush, fittings, the works. Problem solved forever :)

    (I just got one and it's AWESOME.)

    (You'll still need your own pure water tho but RO systems are cheap on ebay.)

    Dig ladder into the grass, then walk on roof for the window above the doors..

    Or buy a backpack, them windows are great easy for wfp
