    I can't seethe pic very well but is that guy holding a roller with both hands? :eek:

    I was on a painting job today and the house outside had a gang of thatchers working on the roof opposite. Now those guys are crazy. Ladders everywhere, all at dodgy angles, and when they wanted to move across a bit to the right they would just bump the top of the ladder while they were still on it at full apex height. :eek:

    Longer ladder with an ankalad deployed, mircolite standoff resting on roof tiles and that job would have been alot easier & safer to do cheapncheerful.

    Even better would have been to use a camera & guttervac from the ground that is if the gap between the tiles was ok and the gutters & downspout bends were not badly blocked with sods.

    well i honestly was going to say i cant do it ....but i think..i could do it from the two velux that over look the gutters with the proper tools of course but it is in thier bedroom so its up to them....yep...last time...unless of course they leave me the money and they arent there....well i sort of scoop it out and send the sh.,.it everywhere...:)

    i did start out with oasis blasting away in my ears...but soon changed my mind as i really had to concentrate...
