    I can’t reach them with a ladder or scaffold and cannot stand on the tile. Is there anything I can on my roof so I can walk on it to paint them?

    could you use a couple ladders and use one ladder that lay flat from the peek of the roof to the ladder you use to climb up on. Possibly put a sheet of plywood on the ladder laying flat to stand on? I consider screwing or maybe clamping the board to your ladder though, make sure nothing can slip!
    That’s a tough problem, not sure what other solutions you have without some kind of specialized equipment specifically made for your type project! Try YouTube search for working on tile roofs to do painting, etc. Maybe you’ll find a good idea there too! YouTube has a wealth of info that’s helped me many times over!
  • You could rent a scissor lift or cherry picker, but it does take a bit of practice and 2 people. Have you thought about hiring out? They would already have the equipment. I know it is much less expensive to do yourself, but sometimes you need to explore other options.

    Best of luck, there’s got to be a way?
