Waterproof Deck SystemsWhen waterproofing a concrete construction deck there are many factors you should consider. Between the assembly and waterproofing there is a lot of potential issues but you are working with the experts at Ontario Self Leveling Concrete and you can rest assured, you are in great hands.
Any water that enters the buildings skin must have a way to evacuate itself. Ensuring your project has the correct moisture barriers will make sure to eliminate any trapped water. Knee walls greater than 3 inches should include proper flashing to provide adequate drainage.
Drains must also be adequate in size to allow for enough flow to prevent pooling and depending on your location in Ontario overflow drains may also be required in addition.
Making sure that their is adequate ventilation will make sure that any trapped water can be remedied. Any moisture build up in enclosed areas will create mold and mildew so local codes should be followed.
All materials and used should be strong enough to handle foot traffic, moisture, erosion and UV exposure and chemicals. The quality of the ingredients used can reduce the cost and increase the performance when combined with modern waterproof PVC membranes.
