not done any for ages but...can see plenty that need doing ...if I ever got a quiet spell and wanted the money I could always post through that I do them as custys can be a bit er...slow to ask...

 

I had one with filthy gutters and so wanted to clean them as it would make such a difference but communicating by text she didnt get the idea so I havent mentioned it since but..

 

I am very tempted to do just six inches to see if they notice..

 

I did tell her a pound a metre as its only the gutter...

 

but for some reason she tried to pay me assuming I had just done them...I thought ...cant you see I havent done them ..so I gave up...its hard work sometimes..

 

one will turn up soon Im sure..:D

I think they like to get ther moneies worth by letting it get green and shitty. I done about a foot or so of one of me custies gutters on their connie, plus a very small patch on roof to see if i can tempt them, lol. U never know by doing that they can either think,

U cheeky bugger:eek:, or book it in!:):whistle: or worst of all not notice u've even done it.o_O

Nice job @lou. What methods did you use? I'm particularly interested how you cleaned under the flap near the brickwork.

Hey Tuffers , i sprayed it all down with garden hose 1st to get the shit off, making sure to flush the shit out from under the flap then using a pump sprayer with swarfega outdoor cleaning chemical, sprayed the whole roof, then scrub with wfp, brush head just about fit under leaded flap.

I was watching a lad doing one of those accross the way and took no time at all using a pressure washer standing on the roof.

 

No really @Jake that is not a windup :D

I wouldn't stand on that!

 

I'd possibly use my PW for the facias on a low pressure setting though, that's always faster then the brush, then I rinse down with pure before final doing the windows

Good point, I do that sometimes to be fair, but not really when doing a conny roof...

 

And yes, stay close to the wall!!
