Roof access question

I was cleaning the windows at a quarterly window customer of mine and in looking at their roof saw that it is ready for a cleaning. I know full well that I am not ready for this roof, but wanted to ask questions because in the future I will want to approach them on it.
Gutter to peak at tallest is ~70 feet of roof (80 feet from the ground), it is a cement roof with a 15/12 pitch, so never going to even think about walking on that. There are three flat areas circled in the picture, how do you do something like that?

Go go gadget…
More wondering if I should use a lift, or is there some secret I don’t know.


If you’re not able to hit those areas from the gutter line or, walk the valleys, renting a lift is the best option. Valleys are much easier to walk but I’m not sure that’s even possible on a 15/12 pitch. I’ve never dealt with one that steep. That’s a big enough roof they probably won’t even balk at the additional cost of a lift.

I’d much prefer Jake’s idea though! I’d give it a whirl.


Are you Hawking?

A lift Will get you on the roof but you’re still gonna have to walk it. It looks like a huge house and it’s not gonna get you up and over very far just up on it. If it’s walkable get a harness and attach it up there, be safe.

Or you could be like rick Siri and use his cool telescoping wand to clean up 80’ and over 150’!

Get a powerful drone and hover the gutters on a nice dry day/week. I’ve cleaned my gutters like that. Otherwise its nut hug city in a harness. Amazin sells a roof kit for 99 bucks
