PHOTOS: Why It's Important To Have Your Deck Inspected

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.

Water damage due to a leaking deckThe 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.

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.

Making Progress

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!
