At DeckTech, our San Luis Obispo
deck resurfacing experts recently performed an inspection of a tiled deck which had been
leaking for years. Upon inspection, we found that the waterproof coating
had failed, and the deck was in need of serious repairs. The homeowner
hired us to complete the repairs, and they are now enjoying a rock-solid
deck that will stay leak-free for years to come.

The Water Test
The best way to test for a potentially leaky roof is to simply pour water
around potential problem areas. As you can see in the picture to the right,
this deck was suffering from some serious
water leaks that could potentially be impacting the walls of the garage. Leaky decks
can cause serious structural damage over time, so it’s important
to have your deck
inspected if you think it might be leaking.
In the photo to the left, you can see one of our San Luis Obispo deck contractors
working on opening up the deck so we can perform repairs. When a deck
has been leaking for years like this one, safety is always a concern –
once repairs are done, however, the deck will be rock solid and will stay
waterproofed for years to come.
Many deck leaks are caused by a breakdown of waterproofing layers and materials,
and it's important to identify and repair all problems to avoid issues
in the future. For this project, we needed to strip the deck down to its
bones in order to fully waterproof the final product. We never cut corners
here at DeckTech!
A Beautiful, Leak-Free Final Product
We are experts in waterproofing, and use fully waterproof materials in
every deck leak repair we perform. As you can see in the picture on the

leak-free living space.
