Roof deck always.

If it’s an actual rooftop, it’s also a balcony if you’re on the ledge

Balcony

Roof deck should get more sun

also more privacy!

A roof top deck can also be very $$$ if it wasn’t built correctly or needs repairs.

I have a roofdeck in Philly. Does anyone know how long these last? They aren’t built of wood, but some special material that’s meant to be walked on. Can’t find any info on that online, it there’s a ton of them here. Every new construction has one.

Are property value increases (only due to renovations) usually percentage based or fixed? e.g. if a $40K renovation raises the value of a $425K house to $500K (+$75K), will the same renovation cause a $200K house to $275K, or something more like $250-260K?
