Deck flashing is the like the 6th man of the waterproofing industry. If rust or damaged metal is discovered, you need to secure the perimeter from water intrusion. Some decks have such intensive dry rot and other water damage that it calls for triple threat decking! Enter Prestige Deck Coating. We are deck coating experts in Laguna Beach and beyond.
We recently employed a triple threat decking design in Laguna Beach. Three decks – one event – no excuses.
Part of this job included replacing the flashing on one deck. So, what is flashing?
Door Pans. We custom design our pans to ensure they are a perfect fit for your door threshold. This also allows us to fully waterproof this crucial area of the waterproof decking system.
Drip Edge Flashing. This deck had an open ledge. This means the excess water sheets off the edge. Because of constant contact with water, poorly installed drip edge flashing often rusts out. This triple threat decking design was starting to get fun!
Diato Metal. Three sides of the deck were framed with a wall. Not a problem. We use diato/combo metal to keep the water out of the cracks. This type of flashing works well with stucco or any paneled wall.
This five layer deck waterproofing system has been site modified over the years for maximum potential. The basic service is as follows:
1) polymer modified concrete
2) mat fiberglass and bonder
3) polymer modified skim coat
4) pneumatic gun sprayed texture coating
5) two coats of concrete paint sealer
Here’s what this customer had to say about our work: “Josh’s team did a really nice job on 3 decks of our house. It’s hard to believe they could make them look this fabulous. What a difference! The crew was super nice and extremely hard working. I highly recommend them…they know what they’re doing!”
