    Are you thinking of using WFP to restore the frames? Best doing that sort of job off a ladder. Get some uPVC cream cleaner or uPVC solvent cleaner and magic sponges.

    For heavy restoration I use this one

    For light restoration ie just needs a freshen up and has a few marks here and there I use this one

    Tried a few different types, most are good on light restoration but the above is my fav at the moment, cost wise you can't really put a price on each job imo as they all take varying times depedning on how much work is involved, I charge £30ph and everyone seems happy at that so far, did a full restoration of a double patio door last week that took me 2 hours, was coverd in paint splatter and gone all grey as was 15 years old. Got it looking brand new and they were chuffed to bits, far cheaper than replacing it!
