    It's got to the point now where the thought of tradding is like a form of slavery,

    I still trad some houses, but the low sun and seeing the lines, detailing, wiping the ledge blah blah, is really not enjoyable anymore, not to mention how long it takes....:rolleyes:

    Has Anyone else who's wfp started to feel like this? It's such a drag having to get the ladders off now, used to not mind it, but now I'm finding wfp is being used for nearly all my houses...

    A year ago wfp was being used for maybe 75%, now more like 99%

    Wfp is just so much easier and faster, it's like night and day

    Yes I rarely use a blade now, and would never take on a job that I can't wfp.

    I don't know how you still do that dave, if you've already got the wfp out and working, why bother tradding the bottoms, just means you've got to carry the squeegee etc with you, and the bucket etc...

    I just find it so boring now, takes so much longer than wfp, makes me moody doing lol!

    Yeah wfp is quicker but I find getting my ladders out a lot quicker then getting the hose out, dragging it round the back then reeling it back in. I find setting up for trad quicker then setting up for wfp but quicker cleaning with wfp.
