    Nice one Donny ;)

    There are very few bungalows were I live so must be a lot easer to for you to clean regarding the safety aspect?

    Do you still use fall arest kit when cleaning bungalow roofs like that?
    How do you rig it up to work safely?

    Lots off bungalows up here right enough, it gets very windy i n the winter so its been traditional too keep the houses low as possible. Smurf i usually use the fall arrestor by putting a sling round the chimney and hooking the fall arrestor onto that, it has a 15m wire on it, if chimneys are not in useful position i take a wire down other side of house from side roof ladder is on and bolt it too house on ther side this is attached too roof ladder meaning it cant slide and hook fall arrsestor onto the ladder or the wire depending on what kind of tile or slate we are cleaning, fill holes left by drilling with silicone sealant, if punters dont like that then its scaffolding tower and hook onto that but that costs and as nobody will see drill holes once we are done most dont mind. Next time i set it up ill take pics
