    Presprayed ubik on the conservatory roof first, let dwell then scrubed and rinsed with hot pure.
    Used a microlite stand-off & lader for parts I could not reach from the ground.

    Back upper,house sides and front window frames & glass the same as above.

    Hand scubbed all the side frames & guttering first with ubik then used cream/ solvent cleaner to remove paint etc on plastic to get it back to looking white again.

    Paint splater etc on the glass was removed with a metal bladed scraper.

    Front door I hand detailed to remove marks and filth then rinsed with hot pure & dried with cloth

    Not to mention I used a lot of elbow grease to get it looking the best I could.

    What a bloody nightmare that one was :D
