Deck on roof of addition
I have searched the forum to find several people doing this but none seem to address the questions I have. I plan to build a deck on the roof of a single story addition to my house. There will be a door leading out to the deck.
Here is my plan so far:
Redo the roof of the addition, making it almost flat (slope of 1/48), covered in 3/4" plywood.
Cover with foam board insulation.
Cover with .06" EPDM, fully adhered.
Lay 2x6 sleepers on edge, tapered to match roof slope, on pads, and attach a rim joist and decking.
Should the other end of the sleepers be attached to a ledger board?
If so, how should that board be attached to the house, and is it okay if I penetrate the EPDM going up the wall behind the ledger when attaching the ledger (vs. not having the EPDM go up that high)?
Should the EPDM go under the door as flashing?
Should other flashing go under the door and over the ledger?
The closest I have come to an answer is from this post, as he seems to be doing something very similar, but it still doesn't completely answer my questions:
Thanks so much for any help!!
