Why Do I Need Deck Waterproofing?

Deck waterproofing in San Luis Obispo is necessary, whether you are a homeowner, own a business or some other commercial property. It is a critical part of preventing future damage and maintaining the vitality of your deck. It also adds a safety layer of protection.

Here are some of the main benefits that waterproofing offers:

  • Protection from the elements. The wood on decks can begin to wear, split, or crack when it comes into contact with water. Cracks in the deck may lead to a tripping hazard. Worn out wood on wooden decks can cause splinters. Waterproofing coats the wood, serving to prevent the wood from creating splinters and reduce the potential for someone to skid as they are walking across the surface.
  • Visual appeal. At DeckTech, Inc., we know how important it is to love the look of your deck as well. Waterproofing can come in a variety of colors and designs to suit your personal taste and preferences, which can enhance or even transform your deck’s appearance.
  • It saves money. Waterproofing before any damage occurs can save you from having to deal with costly repairs and maintenance work. This is perhaps one of the most enticing benefit of waterproofing is the fact that is such a cost-effective measure. It is an investment in the value of your property by protecting the deck from damage.

Water damage can truly deteriorate the structure of your decks, even the ones of the highest quality and finest materials. Waterproofing adds the extra layer of protection that can offer a shield from the water damage, particularly along the coast where the beach weather can be particularly harsh on your decks.

How to Waterproof a Deck Over Living Space

One way to waterproof a deck is to use a roof deck coating. This type of coating is applied to the surface of the deck and acts as a barrier against water. Deck weatherproofing is another option that can be used to protect the deck from the elements. This involves sealing the deck with a waterproof sealant or coating.

If you want to make sure your home looks amazing and stays dry, then you need to choose the right decking materials and reliable professionals who can get the job done correctly the first time. You also need to find out if the decking material being installed is roofing approved. Some companies use cheap, low quality material to save money, so make sure the product has a solid warranty and guarantee.

What Damages Roof Deck Sealant?

One of the most common phrases we hear from homeowners once they realize their roof deck has suffered moisture intrusion damage is "but it’s already been sealed!" For the most part, their surprise is justified: most deck sealants are expected to protect a deck for years and years—but even the best ones don't last forever.

Here are the biggest contributors to deck sealant damage that can later lead to serious water intrusion issues:

  • Age. It's easy to forget when the last time you had your roof deck sealed and to assume that the sealant will hold indefinitely. However, this isn't the case and age can be a contributing factor to weakening low-quality sealants or structural wear that can contribute to vulnerabilities.

  • Wear and tear. We're lucky to live in Southern California, where many of us are able to enjoy and entertain in outdoor living spaces like roof decks and patios. However, this seasonal usage does eventually take its toll on the surface of the deck. Frequent moving and dragging of furniture, for example, can not only cause scratches or streaks in a deck surface, but also foster the occurrence of small cracks.

  • Ponding. If your roof deck experiences sag (or was improperly installed), you might notice that it collects water, or experiences "ponding." Standing water can be damaging to decks, even when they've been sealed—especially if the standing water has sat for some time.

  • Improper Sealing. Sealing a roof deck or balcony or patio should always be handled by experienced, licensed professionals ready to use the highest quality products on the market. When these jobs are not handled correctly, key areas of your deck surface can be left exposed to moisture and, ultimately, costly damage.
