    Well it was a freebie just to sort out a tennant that was giving a housing association a bit of grief. I had to go to see all the properties in question anyway to put in a quote for a yearly clean. So whilst I was there I killed two birds with one stone so to speak. Now the contact from the housing association thinks the sun shines out of my **** norm :D

    This was the pic before it was unblocked so never assume it's ok just because you cant see any **** growing out of the top of a downspout.

    The three inch screw that you can't see in the pic going through the bend joints was a bit of a give-away why it was blocked :D


    I don't mind stopping for a cuppa as is all about building bridges and you will be supprised what useful info you can gain. Also they will often try and help you get more work too.;)
