Vinyl Decking in Vancouver
Vinyl Decking in Vancouver is a top choice for the discerning Homeowner, and Arbutus Sundeck is Vancouver’s top Vinyl Decking company. This particular deck was previously done with a epoxy rock covering, it was leaking into the room below. When the Owner contacted us about repairing the decking we discovered it was leaking from three locations mainly because proper waterproofing details were not done. The water was getting under the epoxy rocks and entering through the membrane under the rocks. The railings were attached through the top of the deck and water was penetrating through the screws. The existing waterproofing was stopped at the top of the deck flashing and water was wicking under the decking.
The Solution Vinyl Decking:
Arbutus Sundeck removed all of the epoxy rocks and found that the existing torch on membrane was failing at the seams. By using vinyl decking we were able to fully weld the seams ensuring that the problem would never happen again. We were able to use the existing topless galss railings by making a pad that raised the screw location above the vinyl sundeck surface. At the edge of the deck we used a special vinyl coated flashing and heat welded the vinyl decking all the way down the face of the flashing. By doing that we can fully ensure that water can never wick under the vinyl decking. The deck was also resloped with 5/8″ tounge and grooved plywood to eliminate any pooling water. By using a high quality vinyl decking the owner now has a very attractive deck that is extremely durable and will remain leak free for decades to come. They can also rest assure that we stand behind our work by offering a fifteen year manufactors warranty. Give us a call and transform your deck with vinyl decking.
