I recently bought a house and now it's fall so I have to clean gutters. I bought a fiberglass ladder and cleaned gutters one time already, but I did not feel safe/stable at all, that was quite a scary and tiresome experience.
I understand that my other option would be to clean from roof and I need something like this: roofer kit. This seem an easier and safer option. Now, I have a couple of questions about securing the lifeline:
- Anchor (that's mounted with screws or nails) - can I leave it on the roof and attach to it every time I need to go on the roof, same season or may be even next year?
- I have two chimneys on both sides of the roof, kinda like this: ||roof|| If my lifeline is long enough (e.g. long rope ) can I wrap it around both chimneys, kinda like big oval that goes around one chimney on one side of the roof and another chimney on another side?
- If answer to question 2 is yes - can I leave this lifeline oval on the roof for a season or longer so that I don't have to put it every time?
