Conservatory roof ladder.
Posted by Squeaky_Clean (Squeaky_Clean), 6 October 2003Does anyone know the best eg cheapest place to get a conservatory roof ladder? The only price I can find is £399 + Vat . Just priced up a job for a window firms showroom 14 display conserveatory's so I think one may come in handy. Also does anyone use one? any good?

Whats a conservatory ladder, I take it it's angled or something to make it easier to get on top of the conservatory rooves
Posted by Squeaky_Clean (Squeaky_Clean), 7 October 2003This is one
I guess no one uses one.
I think I might be able to make one out of a spare 3 section ladder. worth a try to save £400.

Posted by Steve_T (Steve_T), 14 October 2003I use a conservatory ladder system made by Ultraframe
Ultraframe are the largest conservatory roof manufacturer in the UK. I bought mine last year and it cost me £600 but worth every penny as I soon got it back with the extra work I can now do.I charge around £80 to clean a 4Mtr by 4Mtr Edwardian which takes around 2 to 3 hours, this includes washing and polishing the whole structure including the cresting and finial ( the pointy bits on top) cleaning out the gutters and of course the windows. I don't recommend using bits of wood and rag as you will slip off trying to reach the cresting. I also charge a hefty premium for the window above the conservatory because without the proper gear my customers will never get it cleaned
