    Well they can see out of one side now that's for sure :D
    Myself I would be rather peed off knowing someone has been on my property without my permision messing with my windows. I would also phone them up and give em a right bollocking down the phone. All depending what responce I got I might notify trading standards and maybe the police aswell.

    What some forget too there are lots of vulnerable old people about so you should not go messing about like that.

    Very risky. Imagine this.
    You enter a property without permission with the intention of doing work you have not been asked to do. Whilst leaving you notice a gnome has been broken on the step. You did not do it.

    You cant prove you did not break it. Police investigate the criminal damage and note that you are happy to enter property as a trespasser. Your integrity is in doubt.

    Or their window lets water in. (wfp) Or you put dents in the lawn. (trad) anyway, you get my point.

    Now read this.

    I once cleaned a metre of guttering for free on the neighbouring property from the property I was working on. I did this because my customer has to look at it from their kitchen window.
    Three days later the guy called me to say that he had not asked me to clean his guttering and now it leaks. I went back to my customer's garden and tried to seal the joint. I ended up having to fit a new joint. He wasn't happy because the new white joint was too bright, (he cant even see it from his house) and demanded I replace all the guttering on that side of his building. Of course I told him he had no hope of that happening. Then I got a letter from his solicitor, telling that I had damaged his clients property and they would pursue the case in the courts if I did not put things right to his clients satisfaction. I spoke to a customer of mine, who is also a solicitor, who advised me that as I had no permission to touch it I had no hope of winning and it would be cheaper just to replace is guttering.

    I spoke to a local guttering company for a price and explained the situation. They refused to even quote. They didn't want to get involved. I said I would put up new guttering myself but the guy said he wanted his builder to do it. In all it cost me £600.

    I'm not bitter,.........................yea right. It was two years ago and feel anger every time I drive down that road.

    Be warned.
