    How do you all deal with the 'dreaded leaded'?

    I'd always race to clean the back of the house and leave someone else to do them but now I'm on my own I have no choice.

    I'm not taking anymore on unless they pay time and half.

    I only do trad at the minute.

    WFP works if it's not old lead that runs down the windows and I never liked using it on domestic anyway.

    The custies like the "proper" way better. They want to see us working for our money and don't like it when you "leave the windows all wet ".

    I don't have time for the "you left my windows wet" brigade as there is plenty of profitable work out there to be had.

    Likewise you can pick & choose what jobs you take on doing trad too.

    It's money for nothing and it's there for the taking.

    I will invest in a water sytem as my little round grows.
