    As long as he follows safety rules, he'll be fine.

    I put a new roof on our house 5 years ago and wore the seat out of a pair of jeans cuz I wouldn't stand up and walk around, just scooted around on my butt. Well eventually I got to where I could walk around OK. I hate heights.

    Looks like he has plenty of safe staging, that's good.

    Looks like fun to me--I like being up high. :lol:

    Love his smile in the last photo! Seems like he doesn't mind it too much...

    Looks like a nice setup with the scaffolding and he looks comfortable up there.

    A husband is going to do what he wants and a wife is going to worry. I'd say don't worry but I worry every time my husband is on the roof too.

    He obviously knows enough to build a scaffolding instead of trying to do it all from a ladder.
    Deserves an Attaboy!

    Your pics brought back alot of memories of my Dad...he owned his own contracting and building firm...he was never afraid to go up to the roof of the tallest buildings, ladders, etc.,refused to wear any protected gear, he said he was in control of the situation, yet he only flew on a plane one time...hated it...maybe if he had been able to sit in the pilot's seat it would have been ok with him...Naomi

    My husband is a contractor. I kiss him goodbye every morning and keep my fingers crossed he comes home at night in one piece
