    Frank was doing great on exterior house clean today. Gutter cleared out a treat even though a bit tight using a gutter vac. Then a quick wash over the outside of the guttering, fascias & soffits sorted. Then he cleaned all windows as were minging on the house. Going great guns he was until he decided whilst cleaning the conservatory roof to put a big ******* hole in it...FFS.

    Lucky it did not go straight through as was old brittle 2 cell type roof panels... Anyway after frank done a funny song and dance around the garden he then went to speak to the house owner.

    " :itwasntme:honest guv" he was thinking to himself as the chap came to the door. Sadly he could not tell fibs after all as the chap went running upstairs and looked out the window when it happened. Well it did make a hell of a crash when it broke after all. Anyway frank was fully composed by this time and explained what had had happened in a very apologetic way. The customer had steam coming out of his ears at first but after frank had calmed him down he calmly patched the hole in the roof and finished off the job as you do.

    Next frank was wondering is this guy going to pay me for the work had done or not.

    What do you think YES or NO? :D

    Oops. Are you going to buy him a new panel and fit it, or are you paying for someone to do it?

    How annoying. You can probably have it done cheaper then your insurance excess,it should just be a straight swap like for like. At least its still water tight, otherwise you probably be paying emergency fees to whoever would accept the job.

    Even though I was using my ladder with the ankalad I had the top section of the ladder with a microlite on it that I was using on a wall. But then frank decided to move it to rest on the roof of the conservatory so it was out of the way. Next thing I new frank thought he would just check his work as that ladder was in a handy position to do so. . Then the fun begain as one of the rubber wheels went through the 1'st layer of the twin cell panel. Oops! :D

    So the motto of the story I guess is don't use a mircrolite standoff resting on a conservatory roof.:rolleyes:

    Oops! indeed...
    It's a good job I've got insurance for this as if I had standard public liabilty I would not be covered. Mind you I have not phoned them yet as is 250 squid exess. So before I do I will get some quotes in as might work out cheaper to get a local firm to sort it out instead.
