Warmer Weather? It’s Time For Deck Waterproofing

To everything, there is a season, and this includes the world of waterproofing services. As the warmest months of the year approach, this is the ideal time to think about deck waterproofing and many other waterproofing services.

While they say that Southern California is the home of an endless summer, we residents know that the rainy season can be extreme and heavy rains and winds can take their toll on our decks, balconies, roofs and yards. When the rains subside and the sun creeps out from the May Gray, it’s definitely time to think about waterproofing as well as other important summer repairs and tasks.

Deck Waterproofing Services

Late spring and early summer are the perfect times of year to contact deck waterproofing companies and schedule your deck waterproofing. There are two reasons for this – one, our coatings and waterproofing materials will dry more quickly when the weather is warm and dry.

Second, waterproofing services drastically can improve the look of your decks and since summer is the ideal time for outdoor fun and entertaining, why not ensure that your home looks the best it can so that you can maximize the use of your outdoor living space?

At Thome Waterproofing, we can waterproof any type of deck you might have, including a concrete deck, wooden deck or even composite decking. We also can provide you with waterproof deck coatings for walkways, balconies and a roof deck as well as providing pool deck coatings.

Not only can we provide you with a quality deck coating that protects your decking and balconies from water damage, spills, debris and sunlight, but we also can provide you with decorative coatings that will enhance the look of your property.

Additionally, we can use cool deck coatings that will keep the temperature of your concrete deck manageable and safe for bare fit. We also can use non-skid coatings on your decking materials to increase safety.

If you have a raised deck, we can provide you with under deck waterproofing. In some cases, we also will recommend deck drainage systems to divert water away from the deck and the exterior of your home

Installing a deck drainage system may be an extra expense, but adding drainage is always a good idea and it’s important to keep in mind that it’s usually far cheaper to pay for proper drainage than to fix problems caused by water damage.

Crawlspace Waterproofing

While some deck waterproofing companies focus mainly on decks and balconies, our team of waterproofing contractors has extensive experience with many other types of waterproofing services, including crawlspace waterproofing.

If your home is built on a crawlspace foundation, proper waterproofing will protect your foundation as well as the structure of your home and the interior flooring. When the crawlspace becomes too moist, this can cause settlement issues as well as wood rot and even promote the growth of mildew and mold, which can creep into your interior walls and eventually the interior of your home.

The warmer months are the ideal time to think about crawlspace waterproofing because we likely won’t need to take the additional step of drying out the crawlspace. We can provide you with complete crawlspace encapsulation which will prevent water and moisture from seeping as well as keeping critters away from this space and it will improve the energy efficiency of your home because the better insulated a home, the easier it is to keep the home cool or warm.

Foundation Waterproofing

While the proper time for foundation waterproofing is during the construction stages, if you’ve purchased a home with foundation issues, we do still have ways to prevent further damage to your property.

Often, we will need to dig up the soil around the foundation to expose the foundation walls. We then inspect for cracks and seal those to prevent water from seeping in. At this point, we will add a waterproofing membrane or coating to the exterior walls to create a barrier against moisture.

Of course, you also likely will need to hire a company to provide you with drainage improvements, such as French drains and additional gutters or downspouts. Summer is a great time, by the way, to have all of your gutters and downspouts cleaned and cleared out. We recommend booking gutter cleaning services twice per year, once after the rainy season begins and again right before the winter rains arrive.
