roof garden/porch ?

so theres a small room addition on the 1st floor rear of the house, and a huge window that is right on it. naturally we tend to sit on the roof there sometimes, but if we try to keep any chairs or anything on the roof it'll damage the surface of the roof, & sink into it on a hot day. i am looking for advice on how to make a roof surface a porch area, suitable for planters, and chairs. any adivice??

What type of roofing material is it. Tar and gravel, comp shingle, roll roofing, etc.? And what is the slope of the roof? Is it strong enough to serve as a deck as most roofs are designed to just carry the weight of the framing and roofing material, they are not floor joists that will carry a min 40lb /sq.ft. live load.

You should really consider fixing your plumbing and raccoon infestation before anything else.
