Rubber Roof 2016 8528 IKWD

Is it safe to walk on without doing damage? I need to cut a couple branches and clean.

just make sure your shoes are "clean" nothing that can scratch or puncture your roof is stuck to your soles and just walk carefully its an awfully long way down if you miss step

It doesn't specifically say, but on page 17 of the brochure on the website it says "Built strong enough to allow periodic maintenance on the roof" and it shows 3 people on the roof. It also says you have a ladder.

Given that I'd assume that you could walk around on it if you're careful. If you're concerned you could always use some thin paneling to help support your weight.

Yes it is. I'm a big guy, over 250, and I can get up the ladder and walk around. Just be careful of the edge.

I washed my roof three or four times a year without issue. I tried to stay closer to the sides while using the pole brush (I'm 190lbs).
