How Roofers Get Traction on the Roof
Have you ever seen roofers working on a house and wondered how they are able to stay up there without falling off? In this article, we are going to look at some of the ways that roofers are able to stay stable while working on a roof.
One tool that roofers use is called a goat. A goat is basically a pole with a bunch of steps that go up it.
When it’s placed on a roof, the roofer is able to go up it one wrung at a time working on whatever area needs fixing.
Another thing that roofers use is special shoes. These shoes are made with special material on the bottom of them to get better traction on the roof. Similar to how some sports require a special kind of spike on their clients to get traction, roofers have their own version. The material works together with the actual texture of the roof to ensure safety.
Overall, different roofers might have different specific ways to protect themselves, but these were a few of the common ones. Roofing as a whole is a complex process and it requires the roofers to be prepared for anything to happen while they work.
