Are you thinking about creating a rooftop deck, because if you are there are some things to consider before diving into the job. A crane will be needed, so you must make sure this is possible before you buy your materials. Also the waste disposal since you will be on a roof, need to find a way to get it back down.
- A rooftop deck can be an excellent way to gain a bit of private space, especially if you’re in tight city quarters where building a deck outward might simply not be an option.
- The very first consideration is whether this deck is going on a single-family residential home or whether it’s going on top of a condo, co-op, or other communal space.
- For all the waste that’s created in this process, you’ll need to secure a dumpster, which necessitates a special permit in order to place that dumpster on the road.
“How best to install the structure you have in mind—and even the feasibility of that project—largely depends on the existing roof and building.”
