Hi all, I'm helping a friend build a workshop in his back garden and we plan to fit the ridge tiles tomrrow. Can anyone offer advice on the best way to access please? We've tiled both sides with artificial slates (500 x 250mm) which have approximately a 50% overlap, pitch of the roof is about 20degrees and 6mtrs wide, length of building (and required ridge tiles) is 12mtrs. Other than growing wings how do we actually safely get to the ridge to install the ridge tiles? Worried about standing/kneeling directly on the tiles in case we crack them. TIA

On roofs that have fragile tiles, you fix the ridge as you tile back to the verge. Complete one side then scratch around bedding ridge on the last few battens on the incomplete side.

Either that or use a ladder with cushioning etc.
