Project #147 | New Roof Deck, Atlanta, GA

PROJECT: Private Residential Roof Deck


This is a great need to solve. The owners of this home really know how to maximize space! Having personally considered every detail, the architectural plans included building vertically to make the most use of their real estate and to take advantage of the fantastic view by including a roof top deck.

To protect the investment into their new home, they needed flat roof waterproofing they could depend on…and to enjoy their new flat roof deck they wanted something attractive and low maintenance.


Their Duradek installers took every detail of deck waterproofing into consideration and were able to ensure proper water routing was in place and that the substrate was prepared correctly. Then, Duradek Ultra Cork Espresso vinyl was laid, guaranteeing waterproof protection for the living space below.

Durarail PUP Post glass railing system was added to finish the view inspired deck. This powder-coated aluminum and glass railing system paired with the Duradek vinyl membrane provides the homeowners with the elegant, low-maintenance deck they had desired.


A previously built deck on one of the lower levels was constructed perfectly level and water routing was overlooked. Adding in the proper slope and drainage was a challenge.

In this case, the large double doors accessing the deck had to be raised 3″ in order for a new sub floor to be added to accommodate proper water routing.

Duradek president John Ogilvie takes interest in ensuring each and every Duradek installation performs as intended and made a personal visit to this project himself.
