New homeowner here. I need to access my roof for gutter cleaning and other preventive maintenance, but I'm not really sure where to place a ladder to get up there.
As you will see from the pictures in the linked folder the "easy" side of my roof line is right on the property's edge and I do not have any room to place the base of my ladder (it would be in the neighbor's bushes or house and would have to cross over a 6' fence). While the front and the back of the house both have plenty of room for a ladder base, unfortunately I'd be placing the ladder up against the gable end which I've never seen anyone do and I'm not sure it can be done.
Is this something I can expect to do myself (with a friend) or will I need a professional crew? Once I'm on the roof I intend to put some tie offs up there, but I have to get there first.
(BTW, can tie offs be left on the roof as permanent fixtures?)
