I have a deck that was constructed incorrectly. We would get water leaks because the deck is pitched back towards the building. Now a contractor has built up the door sills. And the next step is to fix the pitch of the deck so water runs away from the building instead. I’m a bit worried that they built up the sills enough actually.
The material on the deck now is a rough material of some type. Will this material need to be removed first, or can we go right over it? One company wants to use some sort of expoxy system. I’d appreciate any ideas as to what to use to build the deck up enough to correct the pitch. BTW, this deck serves as part of the roof for the lower unit, but it is also the entrance way for the 2nd story unit. So however we build it up and waterproof it, it has to be tough enough so that it can stand heavy foot traffic.
Here’s a couple of pics I took. The first one shows the entire deck. The second one shows the flashing the contractor put in after raising the sills, and also a closeup of the rough deck material that is now on there. Thanks in advance.
