Roof decking materials - I have a roof deck very similar to this picture with a very nice living area under it. Help! The deck has started to get spongy in about a 6 ft area.. It's just a matter of time before it leaks. I have a large deck area with a nice textured design in it, but you can see hairline cracks in numerous places. I want to permanently fix it, what would you suggest?

I visited your site when I came across this beautiful lawn, really, I was very impressed. The architecture, which you have used in home landscaping, is stunning which gives a stylish touch to your home. A trained architect can do this project better. Good sharing.

What a beautiful and simple aesthetic this home presents. This home looks as comfortable as a grat pair of broken in chinos and my favorite golf shirt.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. We can oversee your project from beginning to end. If you have a major home project to tackle, whether it’s a large-scale renovation or building your dream home from scratch, you may be wondering where to begin. Well, wonder no more — the first call to make should be to an architect. These pros have the skills and training needed to keep your project running smoothly, and they can coordinate the work of your entire design and construction team.“Architects can have a role in all aspects of the project, from site selection and feasibility studies through construction observation and project closeout procedures,” says Coates. “Homeowners can negotiate the level and scope of services they are looking for with their specific project. At a minimum the architect is usually responsible for design, documentation and permitting.”
Dylan Chappell Architects added this to How to Hire the Right Architect
The interview. Once you’ve found The One or a few that seem like they could be The One, then it’s time to start a conversation. Make an appointment to meet at the architect’s office or out on the site. There should be no charge for an initial consultation to discuss your project.
