Well, I do go up there to check the caulk and to clean it off. I'm careful and it seem to work OK, haven't created any problem yet.

When I 1st walked on my roof, the creaking concerned me. But it creaks less now....maybe because things have "settled in" some ?? Other than the noise, the roof seems sturdy.

Thumbs up

I walk on mine several times a year. I just make sure that the soles of my shoes do not have gravel on them. This is the year that I will be removing and replacing the caulking for my rubber roof so I will be up there alot. Have not had any problems yet.

I have a Flagstaff 26 RKS and get up there several times a year to clean and check things. I weigh about 195 now. I used to weigh around 230 and still got up there, so go ahead, you won't hurt it. Don't invite the neighborhood up there for a party though.
