    I have just bought a new round but the only problem I have found is that the bottom windows are very high to reach.it means using the ladders to get to them. Do you think I would be better buying a small extension to save keep using ladders?

    got one but still takes a lot of stretching. Would one of those small extension poles used with a wagtail work ok?Do you have any really. High bottom windows like that?It's very time. Consuming using ladders all the time.

    I have my normal double extension ladder and a smaller ladder. One or the other works. Make a bigger cut down ladder for those higher ones.

    Aye a think that would be fine mate.
