Floating Deck Mounts for Flat RoofsGuide Started By b.n. on October 2013 Last Updated on February 2015 | 7 Contributions | Comments
Decks over flat roofs are often "floated", without penetrating the roof membrane. This guide shows various supporting pedestals and pallets designed for this purpose. These products be placed over many roof substrates, but are typically are installed over membrane, cement, tile or rigid foam surfaces. When used with tile, these provide an alternative to a mortar base and the associated drainage weeps and retained moisture issues.
These are occasionally used for fun purposes also, such as creating a pop-up park or temporary cafe seating.
Cautions and Notes
Any place that stays continually wet, including the area under each foot, is at risk of membrane failure, and breeding of mosquitoes or pests. When evaluating a mounting solution, consider carefully how easily moisture will dry from below each foot, especially if the foot has been adjusted to a slope angle.
