Deck tile on flat roof

Hi all,

Completely new to owning a house and DIY concepts, but wanted to get some info. from the experts on my plan for deck tiles on a flat rubber roof.

The roof is on new construction SFH. The roof is a rubber flat roof. I have confirmed it is sloped correct and has been built to have the weight of a roof deck built on it.

My plan was to put down a sacrifice layer of EPDM 60mils and free float it since it is not acting as the real roof anyway but more as a barrier between the deck tiles and the main roof. Then the plan is to use the Konticki interlocking deck tiles on top of that as the deck.

Any problems with that? Seems simple, but to simple, i.e. I'm missing something obvious to everyone else. I've called Builddirect who sells the tiles I am thinking of using and they confirmed the plan is how to go about it for what that is worth.

Thanks in advance.

Interesting product, never seen but seems like a simple set in place material. Not really understanding your roof/deck situation, picture?

Welcome to the forums! The interlocking feature is interesting. The only drawback is how flat is your deck? I know it isn't level due to run off design, but if it isn't fairly flat you won't be able to enjoy the intent of the interlocking feature. I, too, would like to see a picture of the roof just for the sake of being able to see what you see. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

thanks for quick respones!

I will try to post a pic later when I get a picture of it. It is a fairly flat roof when you walk on it, but it is of course pitched on one side. When I walk on it now I don't even notice it is sloped so i am assuming I still won't notice much of a slope with the deck tiles?

Guess my question really has to do with does it make sense just to lay down a free floating EPDM 60mils layer on top of the actual deck and then just lay down the deck tiles that interlock on top of that? Does that make sense or does anyone see an issue that might damage the underneath roof membrane?

Thanks in advance.

As I said earlier, it will totally depend on how smooth the existing surface is. Laying EPDM down won't make up for any boogers in the surface and could cause the interlocking feature of the panels to not work properly. We'll take a better look once you post the pictures. Try, too to get one almost flat on the floor looking across. The rest don't need to be close ups.
