    I've been asked in the past if I could but said no as I'm not a painter & decorator
     
  3. Christ, it's not hard to rub down some frames, wack a bit of filler on and paint?
    Most of my windows are sat in timber frames. And more than half need attention. Could be lucrative ..........

    It's totally different when ppl pay good money for someone to do it properly to a high standard. I think painting & decorating is a skill so should be left to the so say professional.
     
  5. You're taking the piss? Have you never sanded and painted some timber? Sash windows may be a little more complicated but even they come in bits.

    Yep, its a warm weather job though as the windows need to be left open while the paint drys. Power sanders are your friend, they are more accurate, and a whole lot less effort then by hand. Its a lot more work then you think, but its minimal driving between jobs and it can be a nice week of work in the outdoor sunshine.

    Always handy to have a mouse sander for those jobs
