Archatrak Pedestal Support Rooftop Porcelain Tile Deck in one of DC's Trendiest Neighborhoods
Living up to the trendiness of the Logan Circle neighborhood, this low-maintenance rooftop deck design uses Archatrak porcelain deck tile pavers to create a usable outdoor space atop a renovated historic row home.
As part of the project, Design Builders demolished the existing deck and roof sheathing, along with other work. A crane had to be rented for a day of the installation in order to get the Archatrak rooftop deck tiles up to the roof, as the deck boards weigh approximately 35 lbs each. Once on the roof, the tiles were installed atop of adjustable deck supports in the form of a deck pedestal system. This allows rooftop decks to be installed completely and uniformly level by accounting for unlevel surface anomalies and also allows for easy board replacement (which should not be necessary) as well as easy drainage, as liquid travels underneath the deck
