I want to place a deck on a flat roof, but am concerned over water leaking. Also, the deck can't rise very much due to pre-existing rails, so I was thinking of using 2x4's as the sleepers. any comments on this would be appreciated.

I remember getting called for an estimate once where this had been done. The flat roof had developed a leak and ruined the ceiling in the room under it. Fortunately for me, the owner found somebody who underbid me to fix it. (My bid was just under $20,000 for a 10X15 repair.) Unless you know of some way to prevent the roof from ever leaking, my suggestion is don't do it!
