Roof deck replacement

November 4th, 2009 No comments

If your home boasts a low slope roof with sufficient structural support or a dormer that can accommodate it, consider a roof deck or balcony as a way to gain territorial views and additional outdoor living space. Roof decks can have open railings extending four feet above the maximum building height. Installing a new roof in Bucks County PA requires a building permit; discuss structural and permitting requirements with a somebody from Bucks County Township. Roof decks offer opportunities to introduce green elements beyond simply the plants themselves, including decking from sources certified as responsibly grown and harvested by the Forest Stewardship Council or products made with recycled plastic. The durability of recycled plastic decking products is an added bonus on roofs, where extreme weather can considerably shorten the life span of other products. Those extreme weather conditions also require careful plant selection for roof gardens. Only certain plants are up to the task of roof living.
