Deck Expert, Bill Leys, will be at JLC Live New England on Thursday, March 20, 2014 conducting a not-to-miss conference session that focuses on deck building best practices. When you want the fast-track to knowledge in your trade, hearing what the experts have to say gives you a great advantage over some contractors that might only just ‘get by’ with what they already know.
JLC Live New England is the most anticipated regional industry event for residential construction professionals and offers real world construction education with a conference program that highlights fundamental business and technical skills that can help you elevate your skill level and your reputation well above the competition.
Taking place at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI, JLC Live New England offers conferences from March 19 – 22 and Exhibit Hall from March 21 – 22.
A regular presenter at JLC Live events, a licensed contractor in California and owner of DeckExpert.com, Bill Leys is a big enthusiast and promoter of encouraging best practices.
“I am most looking forward to returning to Rhode Island (Newport is my hometown) and making New England contractors aware of the benefits that pedestrian traffic coatings offer over other methods in building and waterproofing roof decks.” says Bill in the weeks leading up to the show.
Bill presents “Construction and Waterproofing Methods for Walking Decks and Tile Covered Decks” which takes place on Thursday, March 20th, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The session covers best construction practices and will be divided into two parts. The first half discusses pedestrian deck systems and best building practices to construct a well built and long lasting deck assembly. The second half instructs on roof decks and how to properly build and waterproof them for a systems to last 30+ years.
Learning objectives include:
- Best practices when installing new waterproof systems for tile.
- Best practices in building and framing a deck that will receive tile, which materials are available for waterproofing tile decks.
- How to properly sequence the waterproofing of the deck with the construction of the building.
- Tile Council of North America standards and methods for tile decks. (Durdek Ultra Tiledek has been tested to meet TCNA ANSI specification for load bearing, bonded, waterproof membranes for thin-set ceramic tile and dimension stone installations.)
- Reduce your risk of exposure to liability.
Since Bill specializes in the installation of deck coatings for decks over living space, he is very familiar with the Duradek family of deck waterproofing solutions. An authoritative voice in the deck building industry, Bill brings a not-to-miss highlight of JLC Live with his education session. Since waterproof decks and/or tile-covered waterproof decks rate high on the list of components claimed to have construction defects, this is an incredibly valuable 3 hours for any construction professional who takes on decking projects.
