Mountain of activity on rooftop



“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” — Edward Abbey

There is a mountain of physical activity that takes place on the limited area a rooftop offers tilers. Brandon (on the ladder) prepares his work area and transports roof vents down the ladder so that tile replacement can be completed. Kyle ( in smaller insert) carries repair materials to work site on roof.

This is the second in a three-part series of articles highlighting the efforts, skill and many hazards that this four-man repair team routinely face in their daily tasks.


When the weather is agreeable the men who scale the ladders and work on the roof repair can accomplish a great deal in one day.

They are skilled professionals and take advantage of the kinder weather patterns that make their work space more amenable to finishing their tasks
