hi guys

I need to get up to the window ledges above the front porch but have no idea how to do it without falling through or kicking tiles off.

Is there a set of ladder or walking board i can hire that would allow me access?

Its where the circular window is

Ladder ( possibly with a stand off) into the corner lashed to those porch posts at the bottom with rope shouldn't shift. Deciding factor might be what you have to do once you are up there.

what ive suggested is common practice for roofing access on all sizes of tiled roofs and sometimes on slated roofs.roofs if you fall off some shaky DIY contraptopn your wife will freak out even more.

I have seen that done. Couldn't believe it :shock: , the builder went push push shove shove, and as wes56 said you make "steps" in the roof.
But I have to admit, I prefer the bent ladder idea.
