Get yourself some scaffold or a boom lift.

Sophie,

The last thing we want to see is an injury. If you are not comfortable with roofing, let a pro do it. A fall from a ladder will change everything.

But, there are ways to secure a ladder to the house. Go to youtube and see some of the devices to do it.

I don't have access to my back yard with anything large, so a boom lift won't work. My dad has scaffold, but it's only 8 feet high. I'll figure something out I'm sure.

Looked around, but didn't see anything.

Measure your access points, then check out a few rental yards for various lift devices that will do the job. You may be surprised what's available.

Is it possible to take out a section of fence or access from a neighbors yard or driveway?
