    Did a patio block paver clean in October last year and got paid in full but did not get around to resanding until today due to bad weather. Now that has to be a record :D

    Presumably you gave the customer some technical spiel that to sand in the spring would be more beneficial than doing it in the winter...!!!! lol

    I would not have minded but the patio area was covered in pine needles and other **** where they could not be arsed to keep it clean moss was started to grow in the joints.
    So a simple resanding job took me 3 hours to do as had to remove some moss and weeds from the joints.

    At lesat I had the hindsight to buy a brass paving joint brush on a pole that worked quite well


    Also had to use a paving knife to get out the stubborn weeds.

    To be honest I was hoping they had lost my phone number but at least I got a £20 tip at the end of the job :D

    I understand where you are coming from Shiny as can be very expensive to setup but can also be very rewarding not just in monetary terms.:thumbsup:

    Bloody hell! How did they afford a £20 tip after they had to re mortgage thier house to pay you for the job???! :D

    You must be getting good whether where you are mate, its far too damp here for resanding at the moment.
