Did the doctor tell you not to kneel, or does it just hurt too much. I had my right knee done a year and a half ago. The first six months were hell, but now I have very little problems with it. When I need to get on the ground I use a foam pad and have no problem. I climb on the roof and take my pad. Haven't had a problem. If you are fresh out of surgery, I understand the pain.

I went a bought a 10' HD ladder. It IS heavy, but it is wide, very stable. Easy to climb up and it gets me up to the top of the roof. I have been able to work on my awning, TV antenna, hose off the roof , etc.

I bought a lawn chair rack that fits on my MH ladder, then I hang it upside down from that, then I bunji cords to hold it on. Works for me.

I too now have others work on the roof.
As for scaffolding, many self service car washes have a scaffold for washing the roof of RVs and Trucks. You might try pulling into on of those is they will permit.

i have had knee replacement also and have found the knee pads that concrete workers use make it much easier to get down on my knees,they pad them and also save a couple inches of bending

So I must ask, Why in the heck are you crawling on the roof I just walk on it like I was walking on the street. Maybe its just me but I don't understand. The only time I might crawl is when I'm resealing certain areas, thats because I can't reach them when standing up. As far as washing the roof that's what they make a long handles brush for.

Might check in your area if there s A .25 cent truck/car washing Bay.
Some in my area have tall bays and step type devices on the walls that can be used to get up high on the roof and with moving the bus back and forth to wash the top,

How about one of those "Little Giant" ladders? They seem to be able to do anything.
