Remodeling deck surface- How?


You didnt mention where this house is loacted. Is the sun Bad? Hummidity? Near water? Freeze/thaw? It doesnt look like it's easy framing to get to, so I would do it in steel. For the decking, it matters about sun and the other things I listed. I live in Colorado, and nothing stands up to the sun except real stone; and yes it is possible. I just need more info.

Remodeling deck surface- How?


You are dealing with what is considered a low slope plaza deck installation. You have still not told us what type of roofing you have in place, but I suspect it is because you do not know. This is going to be like pulling teeth, judjing by the fact that you gave me one wide view of your deck and thats it. Based on your location, I suspect you have one or two plies of D-226 felt mopped in ASTM D-312 type III asphalt and a mopped 90 lb. Granular Surfaced cap sheet. This is pretty standard in So. California.

Some questions:

1. How does you roof drain? I know you said it has slope. Which way?

2. How are you current posts attached?

3. Remove those few short boards where your deck abuts the slab and take a couple of pictures. Remove a couple of deck planks and lets see a post base.

4. What does your current structure consist of? I need to determine allowable loads.

5. Does your current roof leaking into the garage or under the slab? Tell the truth now............

I will tell you how to do this project, but need info. Take a look at Hanover Prest Pavers. They are the only thing that lasts on a roof due to their 8700 PSI Density.

Forget tile.
