Decks and Balconies
- Make sure subfloor is solid (no holes or gaps) and slopped to the sub drain flange or gutter.
- Completely remove any old waterproof membranes and make sure deck is dry and clean.
- Deck needs to be PROPERLY flashed using 4” inch “L” shaped metal flashing on all walls, steps, and transitions. This flashing needs to go behind stucco siding.
* We do not do flashing. You must consult your local code requirements and/or a general contractor to make sure this is done correctly.
