How to Waterproof Your Tile Deck

Tiles are beautiful but can be expensive. But, the problem isn’t cost as much as the grout.

Tile deck grout seeps water, like any other concrete based material.

tile deck underlay 700So, while you are enjoying the look and feel of your tile, underneath there could be pooling water. Pooling water = bad. After a while, it causes dry rot in the wood sub-floor or structural beams. worse yet, oftentimes a deck repair under tile does not allow for tile salvaging. You get zapped twice.

Prestige Deck Coating can help! We can waterproof your balcony, patio, roof, walkway, or stairways. We can prepare your tile decking to succeed.

AVM Industries has developed a fantastic system for tile deck underlay. Here are their steps  (go here for all the details).

1) Install a 6 inch wide membrane strip at deck perimeters, joints, cracks, sheet metals, drains, scuppers, posts, door ways, entry ways, etc.

2) Use a wider strip if the 6″ strip will not provide adequate waterproofing protection.

3) Install the AVM Membrane 700 to all the remaining surfaces with a minimum 2 inch overlap at the seams and AVM700_diagram_sidecompletely overlapping the 6 inch strip

4) Protective coating (optional with the following exception: required when membrane is installed directly to plywood substrates).

5) Protective layer: apply the AVM Crete 6700 over the cured membrane 700 at least 1/8 of an inch thick. Now your tile deck underlay is complete!
