other problem areas that I needed to repair along the way. In some places I would attach my scraper to a five foot extension pole which allowed me to reach some of the awkward parts of the roof. Note: The Lockjaw by Wooster is a wonderful tool. It is a glorified clamp that screws onto an exten- sion pole and can hold everything from a paint scraper to a paint- brush. I discovered that by starting at the top and scraping downward that the loose paint chips slid down the roof on their own with- out any help from me. This was due to the steep pitch of the roof mixed with the vibrations created in the metal from the scraping. This helped to reduce my cleanup time considerably.
Hand-scraping also allows you to see every inch of the roof and to identify any small holes or other problem areas that need to be repaired along the way.
