I think your best bet will be to befriend locals.
As it is not easy to meet the right people by accident, you can try the online meeting places.
I would personally start with any members of any groups I am already part of who happen to live in Paris, but that depends on being part of an international or French organization. If you are not (yet) you may look if your hobby has regional or local groups with online presence, as you will have your hobby to talk about (rather than just begging access to their roofs.)
Next are the sites that are specially made for meeting people, couch surfing among others, and sites where people who travel hang out, (I am told the Lonely Planet site has one that actually works.)
Introduce yourself, tell them that you will be in Paris in a while, would like to catch the sun on a Paris roof and do they know someone with access to a Paris roof?
You have to realize that there are not that many roofs available. My Paris friend who lives in a top floor apartment may or may not have access to the actual roof, (I was there in March and April, not the time to sit out on the roof.)
His flat is on the top of 6 more floors of apartments and non of those has roof access, as only the top floor has that if any.
It is even rather likely that most roofs in Paris are not made for access and that many of the people who you see on those roofs are there (semi) illegal. If there are no railings, they are not legal to use, just like flat roofs lower down without railings are not for sitting or walking on. And while people are willing to take the risk for themselves, they are less likely to share with strangers and even less when asked online by strangers (who may be building inspectors or something like that.)
So while I think it is not impossible to get on a private roof, I would not expect you to find it easily.
Renting an apartment (airbnb or other) in the roofspace may work, even better if it is advertised with 'roof access'.
There are a few touristy locations which have roofs that can be accessed. I remember being on the roof of the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, as part of a 'see the building' route, for which you pay an entry fee. One of the views is on the photo. You do not walk on the actual roof nor can you stay out there in the sun for a long time, but you can have a good look.

Not all big buildings in Paris have roof access tours but some more may have.
