Create the perfect outdoor room with a view… 


Before you do anything, you should determine how you want to use your rooftop deck:

  • Want to have intimate dinners with friends and family there?
  • Want to relax, sunbathe or read a good book on your deck?
  • Want to add a hot tub to your plans?
  • Want some privacy without compromising your view?
  • Want some shade?
  • Want plants?


Next, you need to determine the size of your deck —most importantly, in proportion to your house and land, incorporating a simple shape to include a kitchen, dining and lounging area, even a water garden.

If all this prep sounds daunting, maybe you should consult a rooftop expert. That’s where Reno-Assistance can help you. We can find you the right professional for your job.

At this point, you may be asking yourself: So how much does a rooftop deck cost? Here’s what you can expect:

  • Most rooftop decks go for between $25 and $50 per square foot.
  • You should allow 5% to 15% of the total project cost for design, specifications and professional fees (including a structural engineer to assess your roof’s structural integrity).
  • Building a rooftop deck requires a permit from your municipality, so you need to add the permit fee to your budget (typically up to $800)
  • You should add up to 2% in annual maintenance costs.
  • If you’re considering a green roof, you will need to increase your budget, since it’s more expensive than other types of roofing, but it will last twice as long and cut your energy bills by about 20%.
