The right side mount of my 84 Tpyota dolphin's ladder gave way. I decided to remove the whole ladder in the face of a large storm, calking the holes.

Do I have to peel up the metal roof to get to the wood underneath to replace it or can I go from the underside that is in a cupboard?

....are you sure of how far the rot extends....get a 1/2 inch drill and cut into the stud every 6 inches and look at the wood texture if it is powder you are screwed ....if it is just wood sawdust don't do anything but get long SS bolts and bolt it all the way through....using silicone to seal the screw holes....geofkaye

I am afraid I am scrwewed. I can only see removing the trim, pealing up the roofing and seeing what it would take to repair the wood.

I have removed the ladder and caulked up the holes.

If I don't intend to use the luggage rack ( an air conditioner sits in the middle of it ), how important is the ladder?
