Turning a Roof into a Cedar Roof Deck

Building a Cedar Roof Deck in Vancouver on top of a torch on membrane is a great way to turn a otherwise unusable area into a practical and beautiful outdoor living area. For a cedar roof deck to not damage the roofing material we use 1/2″ neoprene pads. With the amount of rain a cedar roof deck experiences protecting the roofing membrane is paramount for this type of project. This ensures that the constant movement that occurs when walking on the deck will not allow the framing to damage the roof. For the framing we use pressure treated 2×4’s every 16″, this gives the cedar roof deck a solid and firm foundation.
