Pretty sure they had a 24' pick on there and another small ladder on the roof with the other ladder bracket. These guys do some crazy stuff around here

I have seen some pretty dumb stuff in my time, would not put it past someone doing it. A lot of people out there not in their right mind.

Kinda hard to figure out what that's all about .
Not to mention the window sill damage .you can look at those vinyl Windows and they'll get scratched .

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Easy to see what they were doing. If you are going to put your ladder jack 6 rungs up from the last place the ladder touches anything then you have to brace the top of the ladder to keep it from kicking out on you.

It's in the OSHA manual... Look it up.

Edit: They have a spotter on the ground just in case anything bad happens. Seems legit to me.

The bottom was actually secured pretty well too but forgot to take a pic of that. OSHA will only show up to investigate an accident where there is a fatality in this area.

I would have took the two nails out of the end and used them where the 2x4s cross.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


A few years ago I was working down the street from a drywaller friend of mine. I stopped by at lunch to shoot the chit. It was one of those homes where ,When you walked in the front door . The cathedral went up over the upstairs landing and down the other side to the kitchen . He had three full buckets of mud in the foyer with a walk plank on top of two of the buckets , another walk plank running from the second step of the stairs to the third bucket. With two stages sitting on top of the planks .
Upstairs from the landing to the top of the scaffold,, he had an extension ladder running across with a strip of OSB on top of the rungs .

I said dude! There has got be a better way,!

He said ,, F IT! They wanna build this crazy chit ? We gotta reach it somehow !!

I know someone that has used a 40 foot aluminum extension ladder on top of ladder jacks. With OSB strips, nonetheless.

I know someone that put a step ladder on his stage plank that was on extension ladders with ladder brackets. He only broke his leg. Hes back in action though.

I borrowed scaffolding from a drywaller and was appalled at how worn out the plywood on the planks were... Guess I was being picky.

Buy you're own damn scaffold !

Really tho.. my 7 footers are in good shape . But all my 10 footers need the ply replaced . And i have 10 of them. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find 10' ply? I'm kinda waiting to save enough coin to replace them with salt treat .

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


BlackTop: Menards has 5' x 10' x 3/4" nominal treated plywood for only 100.00$ a sheet, the 5' width allows (3) plank infills per sheet for ~118" x 19.5" aluminum and plywood decking/ composite planking...

https://www.menards.com/main/buildin...452505105.html

I think I'd go with a under deck glue and screw lap splice and save About 50%.

With thousands of miles of salt water coast on the right hand side of Virginia, surely you can find a wood boat lumberyard/ chandler?

The stuff I see on a daily basis is mind blowing. I'm just the gutter sub and I had to tell the roofers to make sure they put a kick out at least for me.
