    How high can we go up a ladder without being stung by health and safety? I have to repair some gutters and clean them . Here's the pic

    Thats a bit high for me mate. I don't even like doing windows at that height, let alone the gutters. But I wouldnt have thought you were breeching health and safety regs if you are self employed. Interesting to see what others say though.

    How would a roofer fix a broken tile on that building? He'd get his ladders out. Plenty of grass to dig the feet of your ladders in there apart from that side bit.

    The company that manage it have said to me to quote it and he doesn't want anyone falling off the ladder whilst doing it he said would you use cherry picker or scaffolding? I would like to say to him it can be done by ladder i won't be fixing the gutters my mate will (he's a roofer) I will use the gutter vac. Do you reckon I would be ok to use the ladder?
