I agree with you, but it's not my @ss falling 20-30 ft, so who am I as the homeowner to tell a contractor how to do his job?

He carries his own insurance through his company.

I'm not responsible for his stupidity.

It's not the responsibility of the homeowner to know OSHA's rules.

True, that's the benefit of hiring companies that are insured.

Or, hiring someone illegal since they don't want to get deported.

A 28 ‘ will get you on most 2 story roofs at the eaves. A lot of the times you can’t get the proper ladder angle with a 24”

Damn Frank, good eye for an old fart.

Looks like an ad photo for whoever is selling the stand-off.
You are correct, it is backwards.

Ya got me on that one. That was the first pic. I found showing the ladder jack style, don’t like the bolt on kind.

How tall a ladder for 2 story roof?


Looks like you'll be informed quite well on the needed height and safety aspects. One thought - Use a pair of binoculars and inspect as much as you can from the ground. I've recently done that here where most of the homes are 14 years or so old and noticed that if the boot flash around that vent pipe is at all crazed, it's time to replace it. As soon as they start to go, they curl out and catch water. 5 neighbors all had been taking on some water and I was able to replace the vent boots without problem. Note - what you see on one side may not be indicative of the condition of the other side.
