In order to secure the ladders on the roof of the porch we had to screw cleats to the roof itself.
When we were finished with the painting that necessitate ladders on the roof, the cleats had to be removed.
Any nail or screw hole on the roof, even a porch roof, must be filled so that rain and snow don’t infiltrate into the underlayment.
One by one the boards were removed and the holes were immediately filled with (in our case) brown sealant.
The roof shingles were gingerly pried up and the sealant was squeezed into hole and the shingle patted back down.
The ladders are down, the cleats are removed, the holes are filled and the house is painted.
AND the 24-foot ladder has been reassembled. Tra la.
