roof deck

  1. Roofing/Siding
    Hi all, I've been having issues with my roof deck leaking water into the ceiling below (master bathroom). For this particular issue, I've used the hose test to narrow down the area where an inside corner (perpendicular) of two vinyl siding's meet (see pic). I'm not experienced enough on my...

    Has anyone had any experience with click-together roof tiles over a modified bitumen flat roof? Last year we redid a large (~18’x20’) flat roof on our house and, since it has access from our office (and possibly some new outdoor stairs) we’d like to be able to use it as a roof-top deck. The...

    I'm looking to build a very small balcony -- probably large enough for two people to sit -- outside my window, on top of the slanted roof of my side porch. Pictures: From inside the window, the part of the roof I'd ideally be building on: http://tinypic.com/r/2vlqypt/5 The whole roof from...

    Total beginner looking at building a platform deck with slanted roof to protect me while I am eating my hamburger while it rains. Plus a small room for guests during the summer only. Nothing fancy. Some more info from a previous post post. General info: Experience: None but motivated; have...

    I have a U-shaped house, courtyard in the middle (concrete). Roof on all three sides angled into courtyard. I want to put a roof over it. How can I do this without it getting cramped or dark? Easiest is straight off the roof, but then the height is really low. Any suggestions or links?

    I replaced a couple of 2x8 joists of an 8x12 flat roof, from the inside (all under permit). A previous owner must have had a water issues at some point because the decking was replaced but the water rotten joists were not. The joists were too damaged to sister, so we replaced the affected joist...

    We just bought an old house with a 2-year-old roof. The previous owners did not, it seems, always do or have-done the highest-quality work and one thing that concerns me is the roof deck: it's OSB, and its edges are completely unpainted. This is a pitched, asphalt-shingle roof. Should I worry...

    I am planning to restain a roof deck which sits upon a flat, asphalt roof. The deck has previously been stained with an unknown stain. I understand that I will need to clean, strip, and brighten before staining. I am concerned that whatever I use to clean, strip, and brighten will have...

    I am trying to figure out what the best way to put a roof on my deck would be. The deck is 16'9" by 16'4". I was planning on using 4x4's for the support on the corners away from the house and using 2x6's to construct the roof. My house is a trilevel with the roof sloping to the sides not the...

    We own a three story house....walls are comprised of cinder block with a stucco finish on the sides and back, brick facade on the front. This past weekend we were putting a piece of furniture together in our 2nd bedroom and found that the carpet in an area in the corner of the room was soaked...
