I don’t like placing a sectional on windows with such a small side ledge. Just what you said, one wrong turn or lean and down you go. I would place it in the middle probably straight up(not angled) and clean all 3 or place in two positions. I only use the V-notch on deeper side ledges like brick. Too dangerous IMO.
Would you say a WFP is useful only for homes with a certain amount of windows?? Because if there are only a few spots where a ladder needs to be placed then it wouldn’t take that much time. I mean you do have to get the thing out, get the hoses hooked up, extend the pole, break everything back down and get back into your vehicle. That does take some time I’m guessing but this is based on my experience with WFP’s. They seem to be a pain in certain situations.
I know what you mean, Kevin. Sometimes the landscape and terrain dictate the angle you have to use with a sectional. That’s the beauty of them. With an extension ladder you only have a choice or two of placement. Say there were tons of bushes and a big tree directly in front of those windows. You would have many more options of reaching them with a sectional.
In the middle I would be too low to get more than one window unless I was on like the second rung from the top and that is scary. I can understand if you are not comfortable with the nose on such a narrow ledge but I am, they are designed for such applications. I think with an extension ladder you would have to place it above the windows to have any chance of getting all three and I think it would be quite a stretch.
I would place the extension ladder directly under the center window, to reach the far corners on the outer windows I would put my soaker on my 18inch Slayer. I would then have my 18inch Slayer offset in its handle so I could reach the far corners when squeegeeing them. No unsafe stretching at all.
On the window on the right I would start with the sgueegee vertical on the left side of the window going to the right I would start to get the sgueegee horizontal as I got to the right corner and then a down pull to bottom. Wipe the left edge clean and starting verically on the left its just a turn of the wrist and pull down. Detail the far edges with a huck on the end of my Slayer. I hope you can visualize what I mean.
