Horizontal surfaces that are exposed to the weather can be hard to waterproof, because the low slope can create areas of standing water. Freeze and thaw cycles in colder climates can create additional problems. Not to mention, the continuous amount of foot traffic that it must endure. Fortunately, there are products that can seal everything from pool decks to high-rise balconies. Whether it’s a small patio or a large rooftop deck, the goal is the same. You want to direct the water flow away from the deck while keeping the surface dry.
The best approach for waterproofing an existing balcony will depend on the condition of the floor and substrate, as well as on the adequacy of the slope. Before you decide on a balcony waterproofing solution, you should check the flooring for any cracks or holes and inspect the substrate for damage. You also want to make sure the balcony has a slope of at least 2% (which is 1/4 inch per foot), because it will facilitate proper drainage.
Roof Deck Waterproofing
We can help you protect, maintain, and repair your roof deck. Our waterproofing process can help protect your investment for many years to come by sealing out water and dirt, and preventing your wood or concrete from deteriorating. Maintenance is also easier once the waterproofing layer has been applied, as water and dirt will now be repelled. Generally, a simple rinse will keep your deck looking good. Of course, before we apply the waterproofing, your wood or concrete will need to be in good condition. We can help make basic repairs by replacing rotted wood and any other plywood that needs replacement. If you need a deck waterproofing pro, look no further, we are here to help!
Deck & Balcony Repair
A deck or balcony should be a place to enjoy a nice evening with family and friends, so you don’t want to have a squeaky or unstable surface. If it’s starting to sag in the center, the boards are becoming uneven, or is looking unkempt, it’s most likely time to repair it. The cost of deck repair will depend on how much of it is damaged. That’s why you’ll often see a broad range of prices for this type of work. But, aside from the labor costs, you will also have to consider the balcony’s size, materials, and customizations.
Deck Maintenance & Resurfacing
Utilize our waterproofing process to make your deck easy to maintain. Once our system has been applied, you will not have nearly as many issues as you did previously. This is because moisture is the number one cause of repair and deck failure. Unstable foundations can still cause damage, but this happens much less frequently.
Epoxy flooring is made from resin that is often used in residential, commercial, and industrial concrete floors. Not only does it have exceptional mechanical properties, but it can also offer a great deal of stability. It’s even resistant to heat, which is why it’s an ideal choice for these types of floors. The synthetic resin is installed on top of a concrete coating for decorative and protective purposes. It has different thermosetting layers that form a strong, permanent bond after it has been cured.
There aren’t a lot of people who understand the importance of good garage floors. They have to endure a great deal of pressure because of heavy vehicle movements. They can also stain more easily, which can make them look less attractive. Planning for the floor of your garage is as important as planning for the flooring throughout the rest of the property, and not every flooring option is suitable for garages. Resilient, hard, and durable flooring that can hold up against any type of weather and are resistant to stains will be the best choice for garage flooring.
