    Been looking at them for a while now, The best price I could fine was 350.

    It does seem a bit pricey for ladders, I can never get 100% of the dirt of the conservatory roof. not the roof it self. Its that fancey looking part at the top. Ive tried virosol different brushes. You can only push so hard on them before the break. I seem to spend more time on that, than the roof its self most times.

    The compensate for the cost I could add a bit extra on conservatory cleans?

    Could always jet wash the finials and crest clean quickly instead but must make sure you don't get water underneath the main beam or lead flashing on the wall or the conservatory might start leaking. :rolleyes:

    Don't be tempted to pressure wash the rest of the roof or anything else though as could lead to a hole lot of hassle :D

    P & T shape conservatories a conservatory ladder roof section cant be used very well either and are very difficult to clean if filthy too because of the shape of the roofs ;)

    Hot wfp indeed helps rc but some pointy bits are a lot harder to clean than others because of their pattern/design :D [font="Arial""][/font] [font="Arial""] [/font][font="Arial""] [/font]

    To be honest If you can do a good job on most shapes using a normal ladder and wfp then maybe not but you may come accross some that I find a conservatory ladder is helpful to use.
