After some inspection and a few weeks of hard work, Ron McKenna of DeckTech,
Inc. was able to fix the failed deck of a local resident. Scott R., who
resides in Cayucos, contacted DeckTech assess the chronic leaking issues
his tile deck coating was having.
Scott R. called DeckTech after noticing its crew working on several homes
in his neighborhood and was given numerous recommendations from his neighbors.
Scott R. asked around was told that DeskTech was not only professional
but offered solutions that other contractors would overlook.
Once Ron McKenna inspected the deck, he found that the tile deck was installed
at a later date than the original coating assembly. The contractor who
installed the original tile deck applied tile to the existing coating
assembly, which was designed to breathe and dry. As a result, the deck
coating below the tile was decomposing which caused the chronic leaking.
Offering a Simple Solution
DeckTech’s solution was to remove and replace the tile and the stucco
screeds, followed by an adding deck flashing to fix the water leakage.
The crew also used their preferred waterproof deck coating in place of
tile which would offer a long-term solution with less maintenance issues
in the future.
While working on Scott R.’s deck, DeckTech brought in veteran staff
so that every aspect of the project – from tile and coating removal
to re-plumbing drainage outlets – was addressed thoroughly and effectively.
The project took approximately 3-5 weeks to complete and Scott R. was
extremely pleased with the end result. He is now having the DeckTech crew
work on other areas of his house.
