After building your deck during the home building process, call our contractor for our fiberglass decking services to waterproof the living or non-living space under the deck. Our fiberglass product allows you to add a ceiling under the deck area or hang lights to enhance the beauty of the space. For your convenience, the fiberglass decking comes with a 10-year warranty.
Before the fiberglass decking process can begin, we recommend laying a 3/4-inch tongue and groove made of untreated plywood over the entire area. Our professionals will test the plywood for moisture, as any moisture content exceeding 18% results in the decks delaminating and cracking. Read more about waterproofing in the attached information sheet.
Fiberglass decking services are typically completed on second- and third-story decks. The process includes lamination, which is the primary waterproofing phase, and the top coat.
This part of the process includes laying out a 1.5-ounce fiberglass chop strand mat over the entire area, including a 6-8" flashing up the walls. After wetting the fiberglass mat using a polyester
resin, the deck is ready to set for three to five days. The overall set time depends on the ambient temperature over that period.
Once the area sets, we add a polyester-based exterior marine gel coat. Two standard colors, gray and tan, are readily available; however, we can order custom colors at an additional charge. The top coat requires seven days to cure correctly. Often before the top coat process begins, we may wait until other scheduled contractors complete their work so the finished product looks flawless.
