I Walked Right Off A Roof in Tampa

I Walked Right Off A Roof In Tampa

Once, my boy and I were up cleaning a HUGE shingle roof in a ritzy Tampa Florida subdivision.

Our old Box Truck had two reels/pumps, and we had our ground man down below.
My Son whispered "Dad, check THIS out!

A College age girl, and her very fit Mom were next door Sun Bathing.
I will leave the rest up to your imagination, but let's just say I was "captivated" ?

To make a long story short, I was spraying while walking backwards, and looking at the scenery, and walked myself right off the roof in Tampa!

I landed in a big Viburnum hedge, thank God, but couldn't walk for a week!

I can share some other true, but funny stories about some of my "adventures" in Tampa roof cleaning.

Chris I had a cousin do the same thing while he was on a commercial roof, but he wasn't as lucky as you, he walked into a high power line and got electrocuted.

Yes, my ball valve was open, and it sprayed the whole side of the house! Viburnum Bushes are very hardy, thank God! We spent over an hour watering.

There are lots of dangers to cleaning roofs and gutters. It should be left to the pro's. We were subbed some commercial gutter cleaning years ago, because he fell and broke his leg. I was bringing a leaf blower to the gutter line, 2 years ago. The ladder was set on wood that had been water sealed. Big no no. I got to the gutter line and it slipped out from under me, lol!! I landed on the ladder! We were able to finish the day but I was hurtin for a few days after that!

Climbing ladders and walking rooofs should be left to the pros.
