    Sold all the WFP gear at the weekend. Found out my old Unger stuff and put some streaks on my windows ha.
    So I watched loads of You Tube videos and I am slowly getting there.
    Going to get a Wagtail flipper today for where the ladders won't go.
    I am sure it's the right decision for the work I have. I never really took to wfp, I'm not knocking it and the customers were happy it's just me.
    Thought I would explain so as not to confuse people when I ask for advice
    Cheers
    Rich

    Why is that then? Tis only for a few over connies or extensions with sloping rooves.
    Are they uncontrollable?

    However I word this I'll sound mad and I'm definitely not knocking wfp. It's just more satisfying for me.
    Plus that chap in the Unger videos is my hero. Specially using applicator and squeegee at the same time.

    I know what you mean, I do some wfp work, above conservatorys roof, and hard to reach windows, and I can do a really good job, they look amazingly clean, but am never satisfied!

    But when am doing trad, can be really satisfying.

    Thanks, I think it depends on how much work you have and if the houses are suitable.
