Want To Put Tile on your Walk Deck?
A lot of people want to put tile on their walk decks. Tile walk decks can be an attractive choice, but we generally steer customers away from this route. Here's why. When your tile deck has a leak, there's only one solution, the tile has to be removed. If you do choose to place tile on your walk deck, it is imperative that the waterpoofing is done correctly below the tile. A walk deck repair like this can be costly.
Common Walk Deck Problems
Cracks & Splits
Cracks and Splits on a walk deck surface is a common issue. Water enters through these cracks and causes damage to the woodwork below. Walk deck cracks Must Be Repaired right away, or you may have to replace the wood below.
Low Areas on a walk deck can cause ponding, where water collects into puddles or pools. Water that sits on a walk deck surface for a long period of time can break down the materials faster. This will shorten the lifespan of your walk deck.
One sign of a leaking Walk Deck is visible water damage. Cracks, splits, paint peels, and water marks are clear signs of water damage. Water can damage wooden trusses and beams under the deck by causing them to rot.
A very important detail to inspect is the transition from the walk deck to the stucco wall. If the metal flashing is not installed correctly, water can enter the wall through stucco cracks and has nowhere to escape.
