I would have to say with anything, use the proper tools.
Think about where and how you will install the antenna and how to should run the cable.
Consider if those screws you are thinking of drilling through your roof will leak some day and cause expensive damage.
Running the coax along the and on top of the roof edge will collect debris. (Had a Dish guy do that on my house. What an idiot)
If you plan to mount to the chimney, check to make sure it is sound enough and is not crumbly. If it is crumbly, you should have it fixed anyway. Major source of leaks. Don't mess with or try to screw into the chimney flashing. It will leak.
Make sure to buy and install quality ends on your coax. Cheap parts degrade very quickly.
