[/detaillong time lurking first time posting my question is how many go up on a roof to get hard to reach windows or is that frowned upon
Hello and welcome to the forum !
I only walk on roofs on the rare occasion but I do if I have to .
Florida also, roof access to windows is at times needed in order to reach the window. It is not unheard of to mark a window as “uncleanable” if it is too sketchy to reach.
Yes ladders are used here in Florida. Your other options are DI, or RO system. If you’re a traditional kinda guy you can use long extension poles with squeegees/mops attached to it. Ladders are used a lot inside residential homes, outside as well if you don’t have a WFP. Some commercial buildings its nice to have a ladder. Like today, I climbed Space Coast Credit Union to clean some windows that a pole could not reach. Also, ladders gives you the opportunity to leave a cleaner finish because your face to face with the glass.
All else fails, do as Garry said, “mark the window uncleanable”
