    great job and a nice price , could the first coat be applied from the ground using a harris pole as it would be faster and easier , and the second off the cat ladder

    Not really as you have to work the first coat in quite hard and at that reach you simply cant apply enough pressure also there are spaces between each slate that you need to work the paint into , you just cannae do that fae the ground, , we took a side each for first coat and were done for 2:00 pm from a 9am start, two of us did 2nd coat at the front and were done for 4:30 so , a morning will see it done so a day and a half so a good earner and I have 6 of these slate roofs still on books to do.
