Does anyone have recent experience building or pricing a roof deck in Baltimore City?

I have a 2-story rowhouse in Locust Point on which I am looking to add a standard (no crazy materials) roof deck.  I am struggling to find contractors (only 3 thus far) who are reputable to even get a bid.  I also am struggling to find anyone with experience in having gone through the whole process...plans, permits, construction, time frame, etc.

You'll need an engineer to provide you with plans for the roof deck.  The requirements are on the city's webpage at http://www.baltimorehousing.org/permits .  Expect to pay about $1500 for the plans and permit.  My roof deck guy will usually charge $25 per square foot of roof deck and $200/tread to build steps, and then another $500 for each safety hand rail on the steps.  Expect to pay triple that amount if you want Trex or other composite decking.
