4 Best Flooring Materials for Rooftop Decks

Rooftops decks can be made from a variety of flooring materials. Choosing which one to use is an important decision and a number of factors should be taken into account.

Waterproof membrane

Waterproof membrane is gaining popularity as a flooring material, since apart from providing a neat, linear floor, it also safeguards the rooftop from damage caused by rainwater and excessive moisture.


Wood provides an uncomparable traditional and rustic look. It is appealing and makes a great layout, especially if the rooftop is going to be used for entertainment and relaxation purposes. However it requires a higher budget, and definitely needs to be cared for and maintained more than most other materials.


Some people prefer to use tiles. Tiles can be made from various materials including granite, porcelain and slate. These can be installed by means of adhesive. However, there is also a more convenient, innovative option where the tiles interlock to each other over a bedding of integral plastic. This also ensures a better alignment of the tiles. Tiles have the advantage of being easy to clean and maintain when compared to other materials.


Sandstone is also a popular flooring material for rooftop decks. It provides a nice natural ambience and does not require too much maintenance when compared to other flooring materials.
