22 Apr Can I Build a Terrace on My Roof?
The desire for extra outdoor space at home has probably never been greater. Could a roof terrace be the answer?
Whether you have an existing roof ripe for conversion or want to capitalise on your new extension’s flat surface, making it accessible from a room above, the idea of a roof terrace can be appealing. And if you have a suitable roof, it also seems like a no-brainer to fill it with plants and deckchairs.
Planning, however, can be tricky, and there are structural considerations, too. So check with your architect and structural engineer.
