In this case the gutter runs across the front of the garage and will get damaged. I never put my ladder on pavement unless I use the spikes. I don’t like to damage the pavement so I prefer to put it on the grass.
Charley may do it this way but I don’t even bring anything but my Camera, Sony tape recorder,tape measure, flashlight and it all fits nicely in my CARGO Pants. This leaves my hands free to hold the second ladder. I put the second ladder on my should and up I go or if I am with the Client I will ask them to pass it to me on occasion.
I take my own pics after 3 bypasses on my legs I will take all the exercise I can get ladders are good. Farnsworth said our roofs were so flat we could play ball on the roofs. It was a nice quite day I was in no hurry the temp was down to 102 so I was just playing around thinking about all the guys that wear pink panties and stay on the ground. Did I ever say I enjoy ragging guys, but I don’t worry about electrical outlets in bedroom closets:p
I still report them but let my Client make the decision. Don’t get me wrong when I am on the roof sometimes I am there for almost a 1/2 hr. When I am done nothing is needed but a tick report when I get off the roof inspection portion.
I would have to agree with Farnsworth, besides the catwalk in pic #1 I don’t see a section of roofing there that has over a 4/12 pitch, even the neighbor’s roofs in the background are baby roofs. I would hope there would be no knee-knocking on them-thar roofs…Play ball!!!
Ya would be surprised pardner how many dudes won’t walk a 4/12 pitch yes today was a cake walk I was just demostrating the second level mount. BTW I never agree with Farnsworth just because I can disagree;-)
I don’t walk many in the wintertime but if it’s summer time even rain won’t stop me. Walked a 10/12 on Friday in the rain and have a 12/12 on Wednesday that I may give a try. As long as I am not damaging shingles up I will go.
