Do we always need a roof ladder? Does it really help with safety? What does it do for us? What does it not do for us? How does construction effect its use? Do we need two ladders to the roof?

  1. If you have to use it to stay on the roof then it helps with safety. I find on a gentle pitch it is a trip hazard. Fire conditions also figure into the decision as well.
