    What I did for the upper deck was to torch down a rubber roof over an Advantech 3/4" subfloor. I then used a minimal amt of screws through PT'd 5/4 x 6 sleepers ( I put Karnak flashing cement between the sleepers and rubber roof where I used the screws) which I then nailed with SS flooring cleats into my mahogany TXG decking. Zero leaks and it's been a good cpl of years now here in NY.

    Notice how I laid my sleepers. On an angle in case any water gets through it will roll down and out the vented sides where I installed a continuous soffet vent (on the upper edges of the roof sides.)

    Today we start laying out the deck of the porch. If I can tear my husband away from the Olympic basketball game.



    Thank you Andy for responding on the sealing question. Pictures were very helpful as well - I really appreciate that.

    Well the porch project is coming along ... very slowly. Well, actually, for working by himself most of the time I guess he's doing rather well, given the task he's taken on.

    At this point, its framed up, and the supports for the railings on the upper deck are in. Hopefully this weekend we will have a couple of guys to help lay the rubber on the top deck.

    I've posted a few pictures of our progress so far - dated 10.28.08.
