Having moved into my first home 6 months ago I find myself getting round to
some of the jobs I've been putting off. One of them is replacing the
flashing on the conservatory roof. My problem is how to get at it....
Conservatory is appended to a small kitehcn extension which has a flat roof.
I assume its just made from timber in which case I'm slightly apprehensive
about standing on it. Can anyone give me an indication of how sturdy these
flat roofs tend to be?
Depends how big it is. If it's anything more than 6' wide it
would have to have been stood on during construction, so it was
strong enough then.
However, that doesn't guarantee the timbers haven't rotted
through by now.
Mine had been up 20 years, and was a pain to get down, no problem parking a car
Also my conservatry roof, which I modifed the pitch on to 2 1/2 degrees (min
recomended is 15) will hold my weight with no problem.
It has to be able to hold a pile of snow, which is water, so are you ............
