This month at Prestige Deck Coating: deck makeover–extreme edition. As you could guess, it is going to be an epic battleground of man-over-water–with only one contestant left standing–on top of a watertight beautiful balcony deck!
We hopped over to our local San Juan Capistrano stomping grounds. Then, we began a complete remodel of a back deck from the frame up. First, the massive repair. Next, our 5 layer waterproof tile membrane system. Included in this project, high-end copper flashing and brushed brass tile drains.
Repair. As you can see from the before pictures, the dry rot damage was extensive. It had destroyed the sub-floor down to the studs. The dry rot was so bad, that it leaked down into the underlying post structure. We also removed and repaired the stucco, flashing, and drains. This was a total deck makeover-extreme edition. Not a problem for the boys at Prestige, though. When duty calls, we flex our old-school contractor muscles!
Tile Underlay System. Part of the reason why the decking damage was so severe, is because it was a tile deck surface. Unless you keep an eye on the grout condition, water can easily seep into the cracks. It is more difficult to realize when there is a leak, because it does pool–it goes right for the foundational wood–uncover and unnoticed beneath your tiles. A bad, bad, scene. After we assessed the damage, and performed a multitude of deck repairs, we installed our customized our 5 layer AVM tile underlay system (see diagram below). This ensures that this deck makeover will be watertight!
This home owner went all out in this extreme makeover. So, we installed copper flashing and two beautiful brushed brass tile deck drains to boot! At Prestige Decking, we are all about going to extremes to conquer your foe of leaking water and its ravages! Call us today for a free onsite estimate that fits your needs.
