Materials and Tools:
5-1/4" lumber for decking
1-5/8" decking screws
miter saw or circular saw
- Use short screws so that they won't penetrate roof rubber.
- Screw down the decking, instead of nailing it. If you need to repair the roof in the future, it's easier to peel up the decking and put it back down.
1. Sweep and clean the roof deck. Draw a line down the middle of the deck, marking the floor every 19.2 inches (figure A) so that the supportive beams will be evenly spaced.
