Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
Same here all plumbing contractors never allowed the roof deck to be pierced for that very reason of getting blamed for a roof leak.

Probably is concrete above but normal concrete is not water poof. If you put a hole in that steel and the concrete cracks where you put your hole, which it will, than it will leak through.


Mind you there is probably a rubber membrane and a bunch of other layers but this is a roof, don't pierce it if you can avoid it. Remember, don't stick your dick in crazy if you have other options.
