Porch roofs tend to deteriorate more rapidly than main roofs because people walk on them. The only solution is to keep people off of them.

We use roof jacks and planks. Set a ladder on the plank and lay it on the roof to work off of.

I also have a question re a smaller porch roof. I'd love to put on slate, but I'm worried about the next painter who needs to paint the adjoining second-floor clapboard walls, stumbling around on a ladder laid down on the slate and attached to...well, nothing much. How is this issue generally handled?

What is the best way to work on a porch roof?

The main roof to the house (100 years old, Peach Bottom) is in perfect condition, however, the porch roof needs some work as there are a line of broken slates.
I have a bunch of slate that is a perfect match size and color. However, it looks like there is no great way to get onto the roof to replace the broken ones!
