    Hello guys - I 've got another question - I will be very happy if you can advise me . - just got a new customers (2 in fact) - and they've got a sort of french ?! windows - like this

    southlakeswindows.com/images/tricept-french-doors-tn.jpg


    what would you use for that type of windows / doors - a small squeegee or wfp .

    I am a bit confuse - If I'll use a small squeegee it will take me ages to run each square . And if I do it with a wfp it may leave the window with lots of marks ?! - smear

    When I clean wfp - I do the frame first - wait a bit and then rinse the glass - as normal

    what will happen on french windows - if the frame is basically the whole window ?!

    cheers

    If their new plastic ones the georgian styling will probably be in between the glazing.

    How can you quote them a price if you dont look properly at what you have to do?

    if it will be between the glazing then - normal price - if from outside probably more ...
