Roof decks are a common element of contemporary architecture, as outdoor living space expands onto flat (low-slope) rooftops. Seattle’s roof decks are some of our most attractive gathering spaces, often providing stunning views of our beloved mountains, lakes and Puget Sound.
Adjustable pedestal supports and modular deck tiles are the key innovative materials that transform a flat rooftop into a functional oasis.
- Wood deck tiles are made of Ipe, Cumaru, Mahogany, Garapa or Massaranduba tropical hardwoods. Highly resistant to moisture, rot and warping, these tiles fade to an elegant silver-grey patina when left untreated.
- Porcelain tiles are just 3/4″ thick, very hard, and come in a wide variety of designs and colors. The slip resistant and non-porous surface resists staining, weathering and scratching. Available in five sizes, porcelain tiles allow for more creative layout patterns.
- Concrete paver slabs are durable, less expensive, and widely used in public spaces and large commercial installations.
- Natural Stone pavers, fabricated out of Bluestone, Limestone, Basalt or Granite, make for a highly elegant deck surface.
