rich why don't you put an edge protection barrier across the roof edge, then where to roof bolts are in rows take a couple out which are near the wall and place a piece of framing timber ontop of the roof then screw it back in, the guys can shimmy down the roof and use the timber bolted into the roof to place their feet to which will sop them from slipping and if they slip, edge protection guard rail to stop them, when you spray the roof back mask the walls first then pull out the timber blocks, have the spray guy on a rope harness like he's absailing.. even if you keep the edge protection there you can put masking all over the guard rails which will stop overpsray onto the cars

You are correct.

Richmond the shoes have a special bottom that has some real grip. They make walking on roofs really easy and they also help with not tearing up shingles but you got a metal roof there.

The pads wear out quickly if you are on a roof a lot and would get expensive if you were roofing everyday. If you only use it once it a while its great. The pads are replaceable just order new ones. I can tell you from experience there grip like none other. I have tried many shoes for gripping and the cougar paws were the best by far.

What if you just put a giant inflatable matress down below, pull the trigger and aim on the way down.

People pay like 4 bucks for a ride like that at the fair.
