If you have a flat roof, you have an ideal spot for a roof patio. It will increase your home’s living space, provide you with access to hopefully great views and give you far more privacy than ground level patios and lanais. A patio up on the roof can be a great party spot too. It all depends on the strength of your roof and how you gain access to the top of your home.
Get your local roofing contractor to come out and check over your flat roof to see if it is suitably strong enough and safely accessible for a party patio. If so, he’ll want to make any and all needed repairs and maintenance checks since a roof repair at this time, no matter how small, will save you tearing up the decking later on.
Once you get the go-ahead, decide on whether you want a simple lounging space or a fancy spot complete with an outdoor kitchen with bar and grill. Do you want landscaping along with raised beds for a kitchen garden or will pots with some low-maintenance plants satisfy you? Would outdoor spot lighting create the proper atmosphere or would strings of fairy lights wrapped around fichus trees be better?
Once you get everything decorated to your satisfaction, you can use your new-found living space as a private retreat or plan gatherings around events like watching Fourth of July fireworks off in the distance or holding a Midsummer Eve party with dancing under the stars. In fact, you don’t even need a formal excuse to hold a party on your new roof patio since a full moon viewed while sipping chilled champagne is cause enough for celebration.
