Even homeowners who live in the heart of downtown need a little outdoor space. In fact it was that feeling of enclosure that led millions of homeowners to the suburbs, but now urbanity is back as we try to reign in urban sprawl.
So, you are looking for a place to relax outdoors. But looking left and right you see that you are surrounded on all sides by other homes or public easements. You are left with only one other place to look...up. That's right, look up at your newly remodeled rooftop deck.
Why the rooftop deck? There are several benefits:
These are just a few. Every luxury or personal twist you add to the design of your rooftop deck will make it all the more enjoyable for you. Rooftop decks can be quite an undertaking and are largely dependent on your design. You may get away with a basic deck for under $5,000 or you could go all out and spend $50,000. The point is: find a good architect.

An architect will help you design the deck and will be aware of local building codes that will make the process easier. Then you'll have to find a qualified contractor to do the work.
