He said I can drill into wall so could tie ladder with rachet so it's really safe?

Aye and what happens if you hit a cable/pipe or something. Chances are minimal but still. Then you gotta fill the holes in after. You got someone to foot the ladder? Whats it worth man..i’d be advising they either use someone who’s got a tower scaffold, or send a guy up in cherry picker. Cant put a price on safety however small the job

I would use my Boss Tower scaffold and ty it into the building. Then I use a rope with a big plastic tub for my tools which I pull up when I am at the top.

You can hire one for £50 a day.

You won't drill into a pipe going into outer wall.  I wouldn't have thought. I know what u saying though. I just assumed there would be a standoff which would go on roof.

I wouldn’t have thought either. Saying that, plumbing is a totally unregulated profession. Could be anything behind. + if the wall is in bad condition, you could drill with the intent of making a small hole and a big chunk of the wall could fall off...

Www.ladders-999.co.uk
Look under ladder stabilisers- they have every type known. They look like very deep soffits and the corner stones are textured so if you do take it on with a ladder you need to be 100% sure the ladder is secure. You might get away with a microlight on top of the tiles but the best position would be dead on the corner which would impede your work area. That’s certainly an awkward one!!

As stated buy a ladder stand off for £50 and price it into job or use your A frame and rest it on the fascia board done loads that way.

You could make a standoff up yourself. 2 pieces of 12mm plywood, cut a v out of one that will touch the brick corner. Another will fix to the v point and check into the round. 4 metal band straps around the rounds so it can't move. Good thing is, you can have it the correct standoff size you require. Easy for me as i'm a joiner but not much involved.

Do you mean v frame standoff when u say A frame?  Or are you talking about a frame ladders?

Unless you have damaged the guttering I wouldn't bother, I would inform them they need to contact a relevant firm who do gutter repairs. No doubt they will be expecting the job done for £10.00
