Dormers how high 35-45 feet? Use a 40 footer and lean it right on the roof as suggested above or use ladder hooks and hang a 16-20 foot extention ladder down the side of the dormer from the roof above.
We never nail anything to roofs we do over 30 three story victorians a year. I would have to say we have rented jlg boom lifts for dormers over 45 feet although they do sell 60 foot ladders. A boom lift in our area is $500 for 80 footer and $350 for 45 footer for one day includes, fuel, delivery, and pick up. The discount will be more by the week and or month.
