2 thoughts on “How many rungs above roof & Why?

  1. 3 to 5 rungs. Preferably 5 rungs. Makes transition from the roof to the ladder and ladder to roof easier. Also for visibility so you know where your escape route is if you have to get off the roof in a hurry. You should also throw a second ladder to the roof to provide a second means of escape. Know your ladders height limitations. roughly one section per story is a good rule of thumb.
