The short answer is yes.Just make sure that every time you use it the roof ladder and the roof hooks have no sign of wear and tear. But here are the ladders online sales staff answers to this quite common question…
A1) Yes of course you should. As and when they show signs of wear, damage or distortion. Always check regularly, especially if external fixings.
A2) Depending on how often you use your roof ladder will depend on how often you need to check it for defects. If you use it daily you should give it a once over every use and then a thorough check every three months. Look for small cracks, dents or signs it has bent out of shape or the wheels are lose or damaged. If you see any of these signs replace your roof hook as soon as possible with either the manufacturers replacement hook or a roof hook kit that will fit on any ladder. Roof work is extremely hazardous so you need to ensure your ladder is up to the job at all times.
