The term ‘roof’ is used to refer to an entire assembly, including both the roofing components such as the membrane, insulation, and vapor retarder, as well as the structural deck. The structural deck not only supports the roofing components, but it also supports any intended rooftop equipment (such as heating/air-conditioning units), as well as people and snow loads.
For flat roofs (also referred to as low-sloped roofs, since all roofs require some slope to drain), structural decks are usually constructed of concrete or steel. For the latter, the most common is fluted metal decking on open web steel joists (OWSJs). Roof decks are designed to support a particular load (or weight). Therefore, it is important that any changes to the loading conditions be carefully assessed.
