Extend Your Living Space with Spring Rooftop Decks
With the arrival of spring, many people find themselves heading outside to enjoy the bright, warm weather. Outdoor living space becomes just as important as indoor. Whether you’re short on outdoor space because you don’t have a lot of yard to work with or you’re simply trying to make the most out of every foot of available space, creating a spring rooftop deck can help you maximize your enjoyment of the gorgeous spring weather.
What Is a Rooftop Deck?
A rooftop deck takes the roof of your home and turns it into living space. With a flat roof, it’s easy to create outdoor living space that has a number of advantages. For example:
Rooftop decks can encompass the entire roof or make up only a portion of it depending on how your space is arranged and what your needs are. In some cases, they tower above the surrounding homes; in others, a rooftop deck may be level with or even below nearby roofs. It all depends on your area and your needs.

The Importance of Waterproofing
Your rooftop deck is an excellent addition to your home. It’s critical, however, that this space be waterproofed correctly in order to protect the rest of the home and secure that space. Just as your roof provides a waterproof layer that protects your home from damage, your rooftop deck must also offer that protection. Because you’re using the space, there are even more opportunities for damage from furniture, heavy items, and people walking around. As a result, you must keep up with your waterproofing efforts.
Making the most of your outdoor living space means keeping it protected.
