Don't nail your foot or hand to the roof.
Move fast enough so that some wise ass guy on the crew doesn't nail your boot to the sheathing....:whistling


A telehandler can be your best friend..
Get roof top delivery...



Have all blocking & braces in place.
Have your layout correct.
Tack sheets to all rafters.
Sawdust is slick.
Tie your electric cords together.
Don't forget to plug it in on the ground.
Turn the compressor on.

T&G ply does not usually go on the roof......:laughing:

Although T&G is not normally used on a roof is there any reason it can't be? On my own house I used it , but only because I got it at a really really good price. Sure made one strong roof.

Perfectly fine to use on the roof....

It's just when it's been delivered to the job next door for sub-floor....
