Last time we started to discuss the Prestige 5-layer deck coating system, with our rationale and helpful summary of the cement base coat and fiberglass steps. Let’s continue with layer 3 of the waterproofing process…
Skim Coat-Layer 3. Once the fiberglass layer has slowly dried for maximum impenetrability (just like the boast of our friends who make us quality surfboards); we are ready to apply layer three: the cement skims coat. The skim layer serves much the same purpose as the initial cement layer, but it is only half the material as layer 1. Everyone wants an even and flat surface on their deck, so we seal the fiberglass layer with the double strength of two “sandwiching” cement layers.
Texture-Layer 4. When we say “Everyone wants an even and flat surface,” we by no means are referring to a slippery top! Water + smooth deck = slipping = potential for injury. Not good. The team at Prestige has a balanced goal of the waterproof walkway, aesthetic appeal, and safe stepping.
So, before the deck is painted, we apply another cement layer! This produces both an attractive pattern and doubles as a slip deterrent. This is where the experience and creativity of our team are again utilized, as we ensure full coverage and artistic flair. Our system is even and flat textured, but never smooth.
Paint-Layer 5. At Prestige, we realize that the most important step in this process is the finished product. All of the work that goes underneath this last layer will never be seen, so we take great pains to offer a variety of custom colors that will match your surrounding home environment. Function and flair are always at the forefront of our minds! Functionally, this layer gives the project a final watertight seal. Your choice of custom color adds a personal touch of aesthetic appeal to your home and our service.
Prestige wants your coating to last! Prestige wants your deck dry! Prestige wants your deck beautiful! From the double reinforced foundation to our 5-layer system, you can expect a superior product and service from Prestige, Orange County’s premier choice for all your restoration and waterproofing needs!
