Painting Roof Peaks

Brad Self asked 10 years ago

I have two peaks; first floor peak no problem but the second floor peak is a big problem, roof is steep. How does one get to that second peak? Hang over top roof or is there something I can rent?

You could rent a boom lift, but this is expensive. You have a couple of options other than the boom lift;

1- Extend a long ladder up the roof (same angle) and work of of it, like stairs. This might work if the height isn't too much and you have or can rent a long enough ladder.

2- Use a safety harness attached somewhere to hold you and your tools. I have done this but it isn't easy or fun.

You will have to be inventive without being dangerous.
