This is how I lifted my tower from horizontal to vertical:  I parked my jeep in 
the driveway, which is on the opposite side of the house from the tower (in the 
backyard).  I pulled my Jeep's winch cable up and over the roof and down to the 
top of the tower where it was attached with a nylon sling.  On the peak of the 
roof I built an X frame out of 2x6's with a roller on it for the cable to go 
over so it didn't dig into the shingles.  A friend operated the winch via my 
commands on an HT from the backyard.  It worked perfectly.  

When there's a will, there's a way!

My suggestion was the rope over the roof as a sky hook, for a block and 
tackle rig that did the lifting.  Otherwise, there will be damage to the 
rope, the roof, and a bad situation with a lifting crew or worse yet a 
vehicle out of sight of the tower!
