Roof Anchors

The Need

Steeper Pitch

Often a roof pitch is steep enough that I will need to install a roof anchor. This roof anchor works with my rope and saftety harness to keep me from falling off the roof

This roof anchor is fastened to a composite roof. See the carbiner attaching the rope to the anchor.

How It Works

The roof anchor is a piece of metal that is securely fastened to a roof joist. This roof anchor, affixed to the roof joist, has a loop or ring attached to it that allows me to securely fasten a carbiner. This carabiner connects my safety rope attached to my harness to the roof anchor. This way if I slip while on the roof, the anchor and rope and harness will hold me from sliding off the roof and injuring myself.

Temporary or Permanent?

I can install a roof anchor "permanently" or I can remove it when I'm done. The roof anchor will not cause the roof to leak. The roof anchor can optionally be painted also to blend in with your roof.

The roof anchor is fastened to the joists through the roof with long #12 square-drive screws with washers to seal the tops.

Advantages of a Roof Anchor

Safety

The advantage of having a roof anchor on your roof is that other people can use it. This helps other people work on your roof safely. Or maybe you would like to use it if you go up on your roof.
