FAQs

Want to learn more? Find answers to questions we get asked a lot!

Can I get an estimate?

Yes, but since all projects and spaces are different we will need to collect a bit more information from you and complete our design process before we can give you an accurate estimate. You can visit our Design Process page or read through on how to Become Our Client, or give us a call at 773-857-2277.

Will my deck support a roof deck?

Most buildings built after 2005 are up to current building code and are ready to go. Some older spaces may need some structural reinforcement.

How much does a roof deck cost?

It depends, every project is a little different and have different starting points and end goals. It's like trying to answer the question, 'how much does a car cost?' Some clients just need something to get them from point A to point B while some jobs are about showing up in style. Our design process is crafted to help us figure where your space belongs. You can also visit our Case Studies to get an idea about budget ranges.

How long will the project take?

Most of our jobs fit in a 4-8 week construction window, but you can learn more about how project construction time can vary in our Case Studies.

Are we a good fit to work together?

We are a good fit for anyone that is looking for a turn key solution to their outdoor living space. Our style is diverse and adapts to each individuals job goals and needs. 

You guys only seem to do really expensive jobs, I don't have that big of a budget.

Chicago Roof Deck builds jobs both large and small with big budgets and tight budgets. What each one of our jobs have in common is their attention to detail and thoughtful design. Part of our process is finding the balance between your goals for the space and the budget you have available.

Do I need a permit and do you handle this?

This depends on the scope of the project. Our team can handle design, architecture, permitting documents that could be required, but let's focus on design and budget before we get too wrapped up in that part of the job.

What are your hours of business?

Our Design Studio is available by appoinment only.
