There's loads of houses out there that have never been trad. New ones that have gone up in last 5 years may never have been traded before.

was there any difference in price?

Same, I thought it was going to be a walk away job when she described it over the phone. As it happens it's a good 'un. Reason she wants trad is there's hard water stains that the pole ain't shifting. Virasol do it? I've got 5 litres but never used it yet.

I think, given the choice, most domestics will choose trad. It takes a while for the masses to move on, in fact I know of a woman who will still only accept them done pre squeegee way, ie, dunking chamois!

lol i was Trad over 16 years and still Trad certain bungalows. I now pick up more and more customers who had a Trad window cleaner and who now want WFP. If you do a proper job WFP wins. All my customers prefer WFP most say they would never go back to Trad methods again. The problem is there are to many WFP guys not doing the job right like not rinsing or bothering to do frames and sills, or have there PPM to high and giving themselves and the WFP a bad name. Never had one complaint yet about WFP. Keep your PPM at 0 and risnse do frames and sills and you wont have any problems!

 

Last month for example, the daughter of a customer of mine saw her mothers windows i did using wfp, she wanted hers done with wfp, so she ended up dropping her Trad window cleaner and i ended up getting 5 of her neighbours too all of which used to have a Trad window cleaner. The fact you can reach windows on sloping roof and above conservatory roofs etc makes all the difference!
