We are building two-story workshop/studio, and we are now starting on roof deck. We need help in deciding what is best way for building a waterproof, durable roof deck that will last many years, yet at same time within limited budget. We have checked on and are impressed with Lockdry ("one step roof/deck system") (www.lockdry.com), but hestitate about cost of that (roof deck is about 13.5 x 36). The another way is Sani-Tred (www.sanitred.com/roofing), which is more within budget, applying tongue-groove sturdifloor, then seamless membrane. However,my husband thinks it's too high. We've been having lot of disagreements. we have rubber roofing saved from other job site. He wants to use that and use cement designed for rubber for seams, then put steel roofing over it and screw deck boards on top. I worry it would only cause problems later on, and strongly disagree. Help save our marriage.

Thanks,csr

The best of both worlds... use the membrane for waterproofing then over that with duckboards & decking of your choice. You can even go torch down & duckboards which is even more economical.

Another choice is vinyl decking, over ply http://decks-ca.com/ (4th thumbnail over top) or concrete decking (2nd thumbnail over bottom). That site shouod be finished in a couple of weeks with the full info on everthing to do with decks.
