    I have done the insides of plenty of conservatory roofs with a small extension pole, and one of Ungers 0 degree squeegees. I use there fixi clamps to hold a scrim, and do it traditionally. Get a decorators sheet to cover any sofas or furniture you cant move about. 9 times out of 10, they are hardwood floored or tiled. But keep any carpeted areas in mind also if there is any.

    Yeah be careful with furniture because you get black drips of dirt that you wouldn't think will be falling off. I did one of these a couple months back. Bring your step stall in and set it up at the lower end of the glass - i.e where it slopes off. Then just applicator it and then squeegee it like a normal window and use a pole. I did a massive conny like this using a small unger pole and trad gear. It takes a while to do and it gets bloody hot in connys! But knowing you chris, you've prob priced accordingly

    Well I've priced it at what I'd be more than happy with for two hours work. Is this a realistic time scale?for a 12/14 foot Conny roof lads?

    I'll bring poly dust sheets and ask her to move what she can. As off to a big hoose further along coast after this sat job and time is money!

    Not sure about the channel buddy, but unger's S channels are about £3 (14 inch). Might be worth buying just in case. You could probably get away with just elastic banding a scrim over your poles cone, to save buying a clamp. Clamps is just what I use.

    Its hard to judge as I haven't seen it, but I have never had the inside of a conservatory roof & windows take more than 30 mins. If you've priced it for 2 hours, you'll be fine I think.

    Any time I am inside someone property I wear shoe covers. Not really necessary in a conservatory, but if its wet day and you drag in mud, the custy might not be too pleased hardwood/tiled floors or not. You can buy them from B&Q. Might be worth a though also.
