Conservatory roof strength

Postby » Fri Jan 22, 2010 8:25 pm

Need to access sofits above a conservatory. I don't have room for a tower as conservatory spans majority of building width. conservatory is 3m out from the building so cannot get a good 4:1 ladder ratio to reach sofits. Would the conservatory roof be strong enough to support boards and lightweight ladder? If so how do I allow for the angle of the roof?

take the roof panels out of the conservatory to gain access to the soffit
they are easy to remove.
