    Hi guys, Looking at going into WFP, am trad at moment. Have picked up some 3 storey work. So couple of questions.

    1. What is ideal size for 3 storey houses?

    2. What about 2 storey houses, but with velux windows (or solor panels)?

    3. What about 3 storey houses, but with velux windows (or solor panels)?

    Any advise would be appreciated. Am thinking about the slx range, will that be best?

    Thanks

    3 story houses vary in size. So its hard to say really 25ft?

    yeh most are modern town houses, but I do have 1 old style 3 storey which is higher. I was thinking maybe an slx 25, but add sections to it if need be. Some of those velux windows seem like u have to step back to get good angle, which would add to length.
    Thanks
