Add A Roof Deck To Your Philly Home

Add A Roof Deck To Your Philly Home


I love the roof deck we created in Fishtown. It’s our oasis, part time office and happy place in the house. According to CNBC roof decks add 6-8% of value to your home purchase or renovation. Cost varies for different reasons; the materials used to build the deck range in cost from $4 to $12 per square foot in addition to the construction costs.

Here are some tips on how you too can add a roof deck to your Philly home:Fishtown Roof Deck

  1. Find out if your structure is sound enough for a roof deck by calling a trusted contractor. Most facebook community groups have suggestions and you can also ask friends/family and check out reviews online.

  2. Create plans for your roof deck.

  3. File all your permit paperwork with the City of Philadelphia. Here’s a link to brush up on all the requirements you must have to receive a permit for work:
