Roof Decks in New York City and the heart of the green roof movement

On a recent visit to New York City this past May, I was blessed with amazing weather. The week before was humid and in the 90's and the week after there was a torrential rainstorm.  As I exited the crowded Delta terminal at JFK, I was relieved to see on my i-phone weather app show me partly clowdy and 70's. What a relief!  My mission this trip was to meet with some existing clients, and meet some new clients who had specified our decking tiles. A little background about us at Eco Arbor Designs.  We live and breathe elevated decking tiles for roof decks, patios and plaza decks. We have been in this business for over 12 years. We work all over the United States shipping material to designers, architects and homeowners. So a trip to New York City where there are more roof decks than anywhere is special for me. I just love seeing the new outdoor landscape designs from some of the great NYC designers. If we are involved, then they are incorporating our raised paver and pedestal flooring solutions. We are solution based company making outdoor spaces better all across the country. Its our bread and butter and something that makes us tingle inside.

Of course if you are a homeowner with a roof deck in Brooklyn or Manhattan the implementation of a real walk deck on your roof can be a daunting task. Often residents who are lucky enough to have a roof deck space to call their own, neglect the opportunity to increase there living space and they end up throwing out a few plastic adirondack chairs and some outdoor carpet. This is a low cost and temporary solution that barely suffices in creating a usable outdoor area. Question is...does it really give you satisfaction and add value to your home?

Well... let us introduce you to the way it should be done and step in to our world of outdoor flooring products.  From raised pavers and pedestals to our interlocking deck tiles we have a flooring solution for your space and budget. Our outdoor flooring products so often can be used on any type of roof deck. It pains me to see a roof deck that is covered in moldy outdoor carpet when for just a bit more effort one can have a paradise with a floor that will last a lifetime. Your guests will be much more appreciative with a real outdoor flooring system and your wallet will love you in that you will never need to spend money on a floor again. In addition you could see a much longer lifespan from your roof waterproofing.

From the many design professionals we have worked with over the years to create stunning outdoor spaces we have learned a few things. From our porcelain pavers to our hardwood pavers, any roof deck can be transformed into a living space and increase your square footage of your "liveable space". Lets face it New York City is an amazing place to be outdoors on a summer evening, it is the birthplace of the green roof movement. Green Roof spaces have given peace and tranquility to thousands across the city after a long workday.  Container gardening or a good dinner outside on a summer night is what makes these spaces special. Would you neglect your living room or family room with terrible flooring and old paint and feel good about it? If the answer is no, then your outdoor space deserves the same credit. We are here to help with this process from start to finish. For a high end raised floor you can expect to pay anywhere from $10-$15 for materials delivered to the door. If you are installing yourself you can save the labor cost. Labor can be as much as $20 per square ft depending on the labor needed to get the material on site. Conversly many of our clients are handy enough to install the floor themselves.

Bottom line is once you are done with your outdoor space, you will have an outdoor living lifestyle that will last a lifetime and rival the Ritz Carlton or the Dream Hotel roof deck. We will walk you through it, present samples to you, find a budget product and recommend an installer. That its what we do, consult, create a solution, deliver material and provide valuable post sale support. We are working with some of the top Italian porcelain paver brands and the most reputable forestry consessions to deliver the best quality material to your site.   We give you pre sale and post sale service that makes us unique to our competitors. So if your walking on an old outdoor carpet or using some old plastic chairs you found at a hardware store, call us to get started and begin living outdoors.
