QuestionsCategory: QuestionsHow do you balance and transport a container of concrete on a ridged roof?
Handyman Staff asked 3 weeks ago

I need to point the ridge of my roof which is at around a 30-40 degree angle. I've done some quick patches before but trying to juggle a small amount of concrete in a bucket with a rope attached while filling small holes was a trial.

Does anyone have any tips on how to secure a bucket on a ridge roof without needing to drill in a ridge anchor? Even then the bucket is at a very bad angle and hard to move with. at least with my tools I can hook them over the ridge or attach them to my harness

The roof is a standard ridge with the interlocking wavy masonry tiles (I don't know the right term for them, they're heavy and very textured. I need to drill holes before nailing them onto the beams to prevent them cracking)

The ridge itself is made of half cylinder type type tiles so there's really nowhere stable on the roof to leave a bucket except for one chimney that I can prop against but I don't want to be running back and forth trying to get a bucket of cement down before it starts hardening
