Can you run a ladder up the roof line from the ground? Maybe hang a ladder off the peak down to the dormers. If not use the roof jacks. Peel up the shingles, nail em in, take em out, fill holes with roof tar.
Back your truck up to the house and put the ladder in it. I that works then you are golden. If not then I'll require a pm as to the really odd situations that I've done.( no sense incriminating myself with OSHA)Thanks for your ideas guys.I cannot put the ladder on the roofline from the ground.Will either use jacks or hook onto ridge with ladder.
yep same here.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.
