    Hi All,

    i've been to quote for a job with some tricky windows to reach. 1st floor windows are inset a bit, though a goose neck on the pole should deal with that.
    Just a bit stumped how to get to the higher 2nd floor windows?



    Any ideas?? IMG_0056.JPG

    H&S would say - leave them. Surely they could be done from the inside if both windows open.

    Why get yourself into a dangerous situation?

    Agree with Spruce. Just tell them top ones cant be done. Just not worth the bother.

    4 Metre goose neck, just not sure where to buy one!

    What a really really silly design! they must be reversible windows if not then the architect needs a slap.

    doing them from the inside would be a pain as custmer would have to be on:rolleyes: ide use a ladder with a microlite standoff on the roof tiles then wfp from there so a standerd 22ft or even 18 ft would be more than anouth :D
