    I've attached some before and after photos here.

    Went round to quote the windows, I said £20 which I thought was fair. However, the customer wanted her fascia doing as well which you can see was filthy, complete curveball because I didn't have a clue how to price it so I somehow come up with (don't laugh too hard) £18 lol.

    Didn't anticipate how long it would take or how much there was at all. Trying to do it on a pole was difficult above the conservatory. Didn't have to do the conservatory roof. Also I couldn't clean the ledge of the window very well with just a pole so think id need to get inside to do that. Think they came up as nice as they could without a restoration.

    Anyway s**t money for a bank holiday considering there's two of us but it's only on of two days off I have at the moment so not too upset as I'm being paid to train really. Just hope she's happy with it! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Why is everyone so polite on this forum? What the guy is doing there is madness - perfect photo for the health and safety guys if ever I saw one.
    You need bigger cardboard boxes than that to land on!
