    ^^ yep pretty much that. Don't spend ages with the WFP as tbh it only really gets rid of a small % of the builders mess they want rid off.

    Don't go anywhere near it is my advice. there's more grief to be had with builders cleans than enough. Builders scratch windows and you get the blame. Cement scratches windows and you get the blame. Or you can genuinely scratch the window yourself in which case you deserve the blame. If you don't know exactly what you are doing its very risky. Windows covered in dried on cement, PVA runs down the glass

    Three times the money but easily three times the work and the risk is just too much. Most jobs go OK although they always take longer than they should. And always hanging over your head is the risk of a big claim for something you did or didn't do.

    I won't do them, as you can probably tell. If you have to ask, are you sure you know what you may be getting into?
