hello all:

We’re in the very early stage of planning an attached garage to be added to our house.  The garage is to be built at the back of the house (we have access through a back alley).

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for I was thinking of putting a deck on top of the garage – until tonight when the fellow, (who may) be drawing up the plans said that if we did that, it is going to leak.

Some background.  The house is a brick veneer built in 1870 in Ottawa Canada.  We get far more snow than I like to think about.

He claims that the combination of a flat roof and an original brick facade will cause water leaking.  He wants to put in a sloped roof and build the deck above the roof.

I’m not really crazy about the idea – wouldn’t a properly applied membrane and a floating deck work?

    Since you doing it yourself try this--

         Slope to one end with no scupper or parapet wall on any 3 sides (snow will push out the walls or trap water).

         Use at least 2 layers of Buthathane Membrane (the stuff used for ice dams, the the peel and stick roll of vinyl with sticky tar backing).

       Make removable railing to make snow removal easier.

    Quality flashing details, membrane installation, and maintenance will give you the results you want out of a low slope roof.  There are many issues you will need to consider.

    The flashing details will be important, flashing into the existing brick wall will require the temporary removal of brick to install thru wall flashing and weeps above the new flashing for you flat roof.  This lets any vapor or water to exit the wall, assuming your wall is a veneer and not a solid three wythe brick wall.  The remaining three new walls of the addition I am assuming are a parapet design which should be a typical detail for a roofing contractor.

    The max. warranty for the roofing warranty from a large rubber roofing company is twenty years.  This is where a maintenance plan comes into play.  Make sure the the roofing contractor follows the manufacturer''t work for you, I would consider a metal roof because you can achieve a low slope of 1 or 2:12 with metal and a good warranty.  Sorry this was so long.
