Ironically, one of our latest jobs was located on a street called Tortoise Shell! How fitting (pun intended) for a watertight waterproofing demonstration!

With a balcony deck situation such as this, you have to be precise.

Flashing installation. Like a tortoise shell, a watertight deck needs all of the cracks and crevices to be covered. We have expert flashingwatertight balcony deck installers. We know that the perimeter needs to be secured in order to prevent seepage.

If you have open sides on your balcony deck, we will install drip edge flashing. As the name implies, it allows water to sheet off the edge of your decking surface.

If your deck is enclose on four sides, like the one above, it calls for diato metal flashing. This fully secures a watertight “shell.” The sloping of the deck sends any excess water into the deck drains.

Crete Decking System. Prestige Deck Coating uses the newest and best in watertight technology in our decking systems. Ours is a 6 level deck repair procedure.

1) After the flashing, we lay down 2.5 lb. metal lathe and staple it down to achieve a powerfully flexible base level for the rest of our system.
2) Spread polymer modified concrete across lathe
3) Plaster fiberglass and bonder waterproofing layer
4) Apply second layer of polymer modified concrete
5) Using a pneumatic hopper gun, we spray the texture coating of your choice
6) Roll on two coats of concrete paint sealer
