Decks can cause major issues when not built or attached to the home correctly. Investments don’t come much bigger than your home, so it’s essential a poorly constructed deck doesn’t destroy your home.
Tiled decks over a butynol membrane have been known to cause the bulk of the problems, but stringers with no spacing or penetrating directly into the cladding will also pose just as great a risk.
Sometimes it is as simple as installing new flashings over high-risk areas, but in some cases, we will need to strip the surface to expose the joist structure and re-detail the deck to meet the current building code. If you have concerns about your leaking deck, we’re only a call away. We’ll be able to provide a practical solution for your leaky deck repairs.
While we provide a pragmatic approach, it is important that the work is done right. We work alongside licenced water proofing specialists enabling us to provide you with a complete package. In order to correctly lay a membrane deck or roof, a lower portion of the cladding will need to be removed and replaced once the membrane has been installed. Our plasterers will replace and repair the cladding, match the texture and our builders will complete the remainder of the reinstatement.
In many situations we can also resurface your membrane deck or roof using specific advanced products. This significantly decreases the cost and provides significant additional life span to the original product.
