Don’t have space for a fabulous backyard but still yearn for that special nook? Consider a roof deck and the benefits of having a place to make yours.  

Having an outdoor space for parties, gardening or even just peace and quiet is the epitome of home sweet home. An Elite Roofing deck could make your dream a reality especially if you live in an enclosed area with no backyard. A flat roof is all you need to become the envy of all your neighbors.  

Benefits of installing a roof deck onto your home 

The view: Unlike traditional American backyards where normally you don’t get much of a view from the ground level, adding a roof deck to your home allows you to get an elevated view, literally. From mountain tops to valleys to inner cities, you can see across the horizon. 

Private outdoor space: Many houses and apartments in urban areas, such as Manhattan for example, often have shared outdoor spaces for their residents to enjoy. Although this isn’t a concern or issue for many people, some people like the idea of having their own space, especially in a home that they personally own. Adding a roof deck is the perfect way to enjoy your outdoor space, privately.  

A place to relax: Living in a condo, apartment or even a townhome, a balcony sounds ideal, but a roof deck would be even better. Lying on a hammock reading your favorite book sounds as relaxing as it can be. Regardless of what your idea of relaxing is, you’re sure to be able to kick your feet up and chill on an amazing outdoor deck! There simply wouldn’t be enough room on a balcony. 

A place to entertain: The idea of going to a restaurant or bar that has a rooftop deck seems luxurious but imagine that luxury being just steps away from your living room! Now your home can be the main spot for entertaining your family and friends. Add a BBQ grill and some cocktails and you’ll have a good time! We’ve even had past roof deck customers put up outdoor projector screens for movie nights. Whatever your idea of entertainment is, you’ll be able to make those dreams into a reality on your brand-new roof deck. 

A space for your pets to enjoy: Not only will you enjoy your rooftop deck, but so will your furry friends! Many homeowners in crowded areas only have the option to walk their dogs, limiting the amount of outside time their pets get. With a roof deck, your pets can now enjoy the upcoming spring weather and sunbathe as much as they want! Not only can and will your pet enjoy this outdoor space, but you’ll get peace of mind knowing that your pet is in a fenced-in area that you can easily view from your window. 

Rooftop gardening: Having your very own garden in an urban setting is no longer a dream but now a reality! Not only do roof decks provide ample entertainment space but allow space (and lots of sun exposure) to have a rooftop garden. Put a few planters up there (or even a mini greenhouse) and you’ll have a bounty of fresh fruits and veggies all summer long!  

Increases property value: Not only does adding a roof deck to your property increase enjoyment, but it increases property value as well. Roof decks, especially those with a nice view, can easily add 5-8% resale value depending on your market, and can also increase rental income. Regardless if you’re adding a roof deck to your home for personal use or for your tenants’ use, your property’s value can and will increase.
