Roof Top Deck

Have a roof top deck over a garage. Posts were put on high compression foam to avoid damaging the roof (wood frame/membrane). Seems like last winter we got a lot of snow and the high compression foam compressed, making the deck slightly out of level, but Im more concerned about the posts damaging the new roof membrane. Only way to attack this is to pull out a few composite planks, remove the hidden clips and work my way to the compromised posts/foam. Now I'm assuming I have to sacrifice one plank, but when I put back all planks since I can only work in the middle (railings on 3 sides through planks and pt framing, the house entrance is on 4th side, and there is no room to slide planks horizontally with clips still installed). How can I install the last plank without screwing into the top face? Was wondering if there are any clip systems for that?

Also any better options that hc foam?
