How does waterproofing work?
There are several methods of waterproofing used in the industry today. However, our process is one of the simplest and most cost-effective. It begins with a self-adhered, fiberglass reinforced base sheet which is installed on the flat area of the balcony and runs six to eight inches up the walls of the area we’re waterproofing.
Next, we install stainless steel flashing on the inside perimeter of the balcony with stainless steel ring shanked nails holding it down every ten feet. All access doors are then set into a door pan to prevent water from blowing under the door assembly, where it could damage wood or other flooring. Each door pan is custom fabricated from either galvanized stainless steel or copper material and hand soldered to prevent leaks. Each joint is then hand soldered along with the nail heads on the floor to prevent leaks and then soldered to the door pan.
The balcony or porch is now dried in and construction can continue with minimal risk of damage by the other trades.
Upon completion of stucco, masonry, and paint application, we clean the area, apply an asphalt primer on all the exposed stainless steel flashing. A modified bitumen adhesive is then spread over the base sheet and flashing. Then, we install a granulated cap sheet with a stainless steel drip edge. There are several colors to choose from. We can also install a decorative tile or wood overlay. In some cases, we’ll also add scuppers to drain water from the balcony.
