Conservatory clean

I've never tried a set of those myself as I prefer to use either a conservatory roof ladder or my triple 12 bps ladder with an ankalad fitted used free standing

Smurf has the pro gear and its bloody excellent equipment if doing lots of conservatories but you could still easily manage with the ladder you have m8

I would not trust those folding hinges myself but still looks a handy cheapie ladder to have if they are safe to use.

M8 don't put this on the roof at all it's to heavy, you should manage in ladder and stepladder modes to be honest

Most would do it like this still which is still ok rather than trying to rest that type of ladder on the roof..

You just have to make sure the ladder & standoff is set right. Best practice when working from a ladder is to use good stabiliser safety device to stop the ladder sliding backwards on slippery surfaces

When I say slippery surfaces I also mean they can be fine one min but when water splashes on them they can turn lethal. Also not all surfaces you put the ladder on to do a roof will be level so you will need to level the ladder.

I did one a couple of weeks ago. I used some high steps, a hose pipe and wfp. Came up really nicely and I never had to climb on the roof. I like that conservatory roof ladder kit @Smurf but I only do a dozen maybe fifteen a year.

Are you using wfp or trad on this job @marksss ?

That sounds about right m8,I know they say you can't put a price on safety but they obviously can and it's bloody high lol

Great bits off kit though but is bloody scary using that roof section.

Especially when its glass and you are working above looking down some crinkly top sat below :D
