I have a flat roof that we use as a balcony, terrace, deck, or whatever you
call it. We have a table and chairs and a small grill and eat there in the
summer. The roofing is the usual flatroof roll stuff. By the way, it is
inclined for drainage. it used to be level but we took out the leveling
joists (not structural) to roof it. We can live with our soup running out of
our bowl. For the moment that is not my problem. It is that I am getting a
lot of leaks below. I think it is because of the weight of the "duckboards"
(panels of two by fours to walk on) which we put back after the roofing.
They are now so old and porous they weigh a ton. I thought I would get rid
of them and am looking for something I could lay down right on the tarsheets
that would distribute the weight of people, tables, chairs and grill etc).
The vinyl and composite linear foot products are too expensive and
furthermore they need fasteners to joists etc. I want something to go right
over over the roofing.
Maybe those interlocking panels that you see in playgrounds of gyms? I am
hoping I can get some more hard finished (not so soft) but that doesn't
matter. I will start by talking to the suppliers. So far I can't make sense
to anyone when I talk to roofers. They don't have any idea of what I mean.
Do you? thanks, Frank

Try a news reader that doesn't put the entire quote in your signature.
The OP already stated that it was "inclined for drainage". Roofs such as
the OP stated are also quite common, as is their use as a deck. There's
nothing at all that "sounds scary" about it. The latest trend is converting
*cough* flat *cough* roofs into "green" roofs, fully landscaped.
For the OP, this may help get you started:

I provide the entire OPs message in a reply. Its a courtesy to readers who
weren't privy to the intial message. It happens.
Read again, OP indicated the roof was level initially. There is no such
thing as a purely flat roof, has to have parapets with low areas on that
part at least. Not totally level. Don't bother to reply to this part since
you cut all the OP's info out on your past reply.
Thanks, Mr. newsgroup policeman.
Yup. It's also a courtesy to include the quoted text IN THE BODY of the
message, NOT in the SIGNATURE. Do you not fully understand that?
And, apparently, that's right where you stopped reading. In the same post,
they later stated that it was actually "inclined for drainage".
Who gives a flying fuck? Whether they called the roof level or 7/12. Your
"there's no such thing" comment had NOTHING to do with what they were
asking about. Your point was moot, since the OP had already stated it was
no longer a level roof. You're related to Stubby, aren't you.
No, dipshit. I snipped your signature , which included your quote of the
You're welcome, clooless poster. Maybe webtv's more your speed. You should
give it a try.

Sorry, somehow, your response resulted in foul language. Apparently, I
should have ignored your initial response. My apologies to any readers of
this thread. And any responses that follow...
