Project: Edinburgh Holladay Condominium Deck Reno, Holladay, UT
The original deck construction of these condominium units paid very little attention to proper drainage and waterproofing.
Over the years, the unit owner covered the decks with outdoor carpet, wood, tile and other materials to cover up damage in hopes of avoiding larger repairs. No deck to wall flashing was installed and the drip edge details prevented proper drainage.
The inattention to these simple details has resulted in sever staining on the exterior stucco and compromised the deck’s stability due to water infiltration on the deck surface.
For the first stage of the renovation of this deck, the doors and sills were removed and metal pans and water diverters were installed at the threshold as per Duradek installation recommendations.
With the future consideration of water flow addressed, the new plywood substrate was installed and Duradek Ultra Cork Espresso vinyl was laid with the peace of mind that it was done properly and will easily perform throughout its warrantied lifetime.
With large projects such as condominiums, motels or other heavy traffic areas, Duradek is a great choice for keeping the inconvenience of renovations to a minimum. Duradek vinyl membranes require virtually no drying time and can be walked on immediately following installation.
