I am trying to paint a steep pitch roof line. Its the roof line between the house and the attached garage. The peak of the roof line is 32 feet on the house and about 20 ft on the peak of the garage. This means I have 12 feet of wall that I have to paint at the peak of a steep roof. any suggestions? I am new to painting and would like to hear some ideas.

Seriously though, there is plenty of info here in threads like this.

You may want to read some of those and then post an intro here.

Thanks

It will be ok. Just tell the homeowner you don't know how to paint it and ask if they have any suggestions. They might tell you how the last painter did it.

Get some rope and tie one end to your vehicle, drape it over the peak and tether down.

Just make sure your shoes have good grip, you tie a good knot, and the rope isn't frayed.




p.s. tie it to structure not some plastic trim piece.:thumbsup:

Since we're in Canada I'll call it close enough.

Up here a tan and willingness to do the insane for cheap is all you need
Yeah tell me about it, good times I had when I first came here, working for the minimum and doing the most dangerous, so yeah "mbadams2" hire a mexican that just came over, he'll figure it out! :yes:
