Halocho #1501- A fence around your roof

It's a Mitzvah to put a fence around ones roof to prevent people from falling off. 

The fence must be at least 10 Tefachim (80 cm - 30") high and must be strong enough that a person can lean on it and not fall. 

A roof that is never used does not need a fence.
