Membrane Repair – Raised Solid Deck

A raised solid deck is a second or third story deck where the decking is solid, such as it being tile, stone or brick. The deck will have a membrane under the solid floor and underneath the deck it is waterproof normally with a finished ceiling. The problem we see is the contractor or installer does not install the membrane properly and the deck starts to leak and the wood rots under the flooring and above the ceiling.

This is a good example of a improperly installed membrane.
