Waterproof Tile Deck Membrane TileDeck
Above is a project completed by Golden Gate Enterprises Inc. , San Francisco Bay Area’s leading waterproof deck contractor. This is a project in the Oakland Hills where the previous waterproofing system failed. We installed our approved waterproof tile deck membrane, along with all our standard waterproofing details. Take a look at the job video that gives you good idea of the process we went through:
Outdoor Waterproof Tile Deck Membrane
There is nothing like the look of tile or slate on that outdoor deck. But the beauty is soon forgotten when water pours into your home, seemingly through the tile. that’s why you need the proper waterproof tile deck membrane. And then you discover that all the attention on the job was towards the tile with little thought given to proper waterproofing. Rot repair is intrusive and expensive, not to mention the cost of replacing the tile.
This is a common story. There seems to be a lack of understanding within the building community about the proper waterproofing of decks, balconies and roofdecks that are overlaid with porcelain tile, slate or some of the other natural stone finishes. That’s where Duradek fits into the picture.
Waterproof Tile Deck Membrane Done Correctly
Tiledek White Paper – Porcelain/Stone Tile On Outdoor Decks
Duradek has been waterproofing roofdecks since 1974 with PVC sheet membranes that are meant to be walked on. We sell our product only one way – professionally installed by contractors who have completed a training course and who specialize in flat surface waterproofing. Many of those decks have been covered with tile over the years. So it is not much of a stretch for us to redesign our regular Duradek Ultra membrane to come up with an anti-fracture, roofing membrane capable of having tile applied over top – Duradek Ultra Tiledek! Waterproof Tile Deck problems are in the past when done properly.
- 60 mil membrane (compared to others at 40 mils)
- Installed only by trained contractors who specialize in roofdeck and balcony waterproofing.
- Duradek has 35 years of roofing/waterproofing experience to draw upon.
- Why to use Tiledek instead of a Modified Bitumen as a waterproof membrane under exterior tile.
