I need to repoint my chimney. To do so I need to put an extension ladder on
a lower roof. Is there anything I need to know to make sure I do this
safely?? Does it need to be secured somehow??
Thanks in advance.
And when you find a ladder that will reach from the ground, you want to put
a spreader bar at the top to widen the area of contact with the chimney.
Then you need a body harness tied to a shock absorbing lanyard tied to a
rope-grab tied to a vertical safety line that is tied to a grappling hook at
the top of the chimney. That's what an osha-compliant roofer uses.
