First roof job.

Recommended Posts

Alec

Right I've taken on my first roof job, it's a dorma bungalow so not to bad. The front is ok not too steep to walk on so that's easy. The back is steeper so will be done using ladders & cat ladder. 7fc852d4cf2d3bf1152c8c54cbe731d5.jpg71b88652fd146ad94fa50abcb8ac5c79.jpgI've just purchased a harness, can anyone recommend anything else. What do you use from the harness to the ladder in order to lock in..

You need a full body harness Alec. The ideal method is to be attached to a safety line via something like a Petzl ASAP. Safety line is attached to anchor point on opposite side to which you're working. Reason for this is say your cat ladder is resting on a ridge line tile that you cant see has no staying power cause it's all mossed up and that tile decides to give out, well with your weight on it and gravity your ladders going down and if your tied off to it then so are you.

 

If however you are bent on anchoring to the cat ladder then you want one of these Petzl Double Absorbica Y Rope Lanyard with MGOs and Captive Triact-Lock Karabiner

Right I thought anchoring to other side would be the case. Where would you anchor from? Would you not anchor the ladders? Then you can anchor from them? What would I use to anchor from the other side mate? Appreciate the advice.

Anyone have any pics of tools that they may use to scrape the roof tiles.
