Enjoy outdoor living on a new rooftop deck
Metro area residents understand the appeal of a rooftop deck. After a busy day in the city, there is nothing better than enjoying the evening view from a rooftop deck. Rooftop decks are a growing trend in many metro areas where space for the traditional backyard deck is not available. We have taken our full decking line-up and adapted it to rooftop applications within our custom deck design services. We’ve also added additional roof-specific products like lightweight pavers and rooftop decking tiles to our rooftop deck design and rooftop deck construction options.
Things to consider when building a rooftop deck:
- Future roof repairs: If there is a roof leak down the road, will it be accessible for repair?
- The weight of the deck and the number of people it can safely hold: Can the roof handle the additional load or a large gathering? What about planters? Shade for a rooftop deck might include pergolas or other features with a larger point load.
- Does the existing rooftop deck system require any special preparation for a deck to be added?
- View: one of the greatest assets to your rooftop deck will be the view from the top. It’s free, so design the area to capitalize on it.
Whether it’s your own private roof deck, a common shared area, or a commercial-use area, drop us a line we can help.
Rooftop Decking Resurfacing
Do you have an existing rooftop deck that you love but hate the decking or railing? We also offer rooftop deck resurfacing. This is where the decking and/or railing is removed and the support structure remains if it is in good condition. What you end up with is a new deck on visible surfaces without the cost of replacing the sub-structure. This is a great, inexpensive way to improve your existing rooftop deck.
