"Can't I just reseal my roof deck myself?"
If you or your household enjoy Do-It-Yourself projects, this may be a question
that crosses your mind when considering the long-term protection of your
roof deck or balcony. While there are some vendors and products out there
that tackling this type of project is a good idea, they're far less
likely to point out the possible pitfalls. Below, we take a look at just
a few reasons why you should seriously consider hiring a trusted, experienced
professional to reseal your roof deck or balcony.
Sealing Isn't "Sealing"
Many homeowners equate roof deck sealing with traditional wood deck sealing.
Wood deck sealing is a much more straightforward process of applying sealant
to wood. However, roof deck sealing can be a multi-step process that requires
knowledge of best practices and quality materials. And no matter how detailed
or easy an online step-by-step guide may be, having a professional with
25 years of experience by your side ensures that your roof deck resealing
goes right the first time.
You May Miss the Warning Signs
You may not suspect that your roof deck or balcony has experienced moisture
intrusion and resealing it yourself may put you into a false sense of
security. The truth is a trained professional can assess the condition
of your deck before resealing it, determine if there are water intrusion
issues before the resealing process and, if necessary, repair them. Left
unchecked, these issues can cause serious structural or mold issues with
both your deck and your home.
Peace of Mind
Given the major problems that can arise from a roof deck or balcony moisture
intrusion, it's always best to err on the side of caution. If you
hire a knowledgeable professional you can rest assured that not only will
your roof deck resealing be properly completed but that the integrity
roof deck or balcony will last for years to come.
