How do you install the ridge cap without sliding off the metal roof? I am planning on installing a metal roof on our cottage in Northern Wisconsin. However, I am concerned as to how you put the ridge cap on last and have enough grip to stand on the roof and install the cap? IS there anything I should put down to prevent me from sliding off the roof while installing the ridge cap. Thanks for info. I'm a contractor, but never have installed a metal roof before--so a do it yourselfer on this one. Same goes for flashing around the chimney which is a stone chimney located on the west side of the cottage, all the way to the ground--not in the center. Thanks for any and all help.

Hanging ladders from the ridge is often the best option.
