During the construction of a residential or commercial building, designers and architects are now considering how to utilize uneven or pitched spaces, like decks or rooftops, to create more liveable and inviting areas. County Materials Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers are ideal for adding safe and functional spaces on rooftops or areas that are otherwise unusable. Installed with pedestals, our Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers create level, slip resistant and maintenance-free spaces that can be utilized in a multitude of different ways.
The Coveted Rooftop
In an era where sustainability is a preferred initiative in new construction, underutilized spaces, especially rooftops, are being reconsidered in the design process. Architects and designers are faced with the unique challenge of creating a functional, aesthetically pleasing space with materials that are able to withstand constant exposure to weather and the elements. With proper engineering, the weight load capacity of a rooftop area can easily accommodate concrete deck pavers. County Materials developed Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers to address these specific challenges and help create expansive, usable and low maintenance outdoor spaces for residents and business owners.
Rooftop spaces are growing in popularity because building owners want to gain available square footage on rooftops and potentially increase rental revenue by offering tenants and guests easily accessible outdoor gathering spaces with attractive views. With Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers installed, rooftops can be used as outdoor seating by bar and restaurant patrons, dog parks, playgrounds, outdoor workout areas and more.
Added Benefits of County Materials Skylands™ Concrete Pavers
Skylands™ Concrete Pavers offer many other benefits too. First is their simplicity, ease and speed of installation. Second, by elevating concrete deck pavers, the pedestals create a uniform spacing between units to allow storm water to flow unimpeded to drains where it is channeled away from the paver’s surface. Another advantage is that installing concrete deck pavers on pedestals makes it easier for maintenance crews to quickly and easily remove pavers to access the roof below for service, inspection and leak repair. Skylands Concrete Deck Pavers can also prevent damage to the roofing system and double the life expectancy of the roofing membrane by protecting it from UV rays from sun exposure, hail and wind damage, and by elevating abrasive materials off the roof - all factors that age the roof.
Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers are backed by the durability of concrete, creating a long lasting, very durable, and low-maintenance surface solution that offers safe, steady footing. They are available in attractive color and texture options that resist wear and offer natural beauty. Added to this, concrete pavers easily withstand freeze/thaw cycles and offer higher wind uplift resistance.
The biggest benefit is that Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers, with pedestals, can be safely installed over pitched, uneven or otherwise underutilized areas, adding usable square footage and expanding the value and purpose for a building owner. Apartment complexes, condos, hotels and hospitals all benefit from functional and low maintenance outdoor spaces.
