Protecting roof from drips?

Jerry Smith asked 10 years ago

I need to paint the trim above a shingled porch roof. I’m looking for pro. hints on how this should be dealt with. I will need to be standing on this to paint. Would you cover the shingles with something (and if so what) or just be prepared to wash off right away? I am using a water based paint. I suppose I just shouldn’t drip paint but don’t trust myself.

Definitely cover the roof. It is easier to cover than washing off drips. Use a drop cloth, a 4×15 runner should work.
