"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 30 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.
