Painting side of home


I am currently in the process of painting my home. I just realized during scraping that there are some areas I don't know how to reach. They're where my roof extends beyond the house for the front porch and deck in the back yard. I don't know how to set up my ladder in these situations.

That's the side of the house with the deck. The front porch side is the same story. How do I setup my ladder in that situation?

Going by the picture, I would think a 24-28 foot ladder with a stabilizer on the top would work from the ground.

The stabilizer might hold the top of the ladder out far enough be at a useable angle from the ground.... Looks like it from here anyway

I don't see any good options for putting the ladder on the roof, its so narrow.

Be safe. A ladder can slip on concrete easily. Use a helper.

I have a stabilizer. It doesn't help me reach out to finish the side of the roof which is like 5' extended from the house for the deck.

You can set up on the facia. The slant of the roof puts the ladder of at the top a little, so adjust it on the ground. You can damage the shingle edge a little, and you have to reach under the ladder to paint. Sometimes its the only way, unless you scaffold or something.

Could you draw out what you mean or found a photo? I'm not familiar with all the terms.

You can hire some experienced painter otherwise you may get hurt as the roof cannot support the ladder properly.
